The global pressure relief devices market is expected to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. A pressure relief device refers to a cushioned appliance that is used to minimize pressure and friction between various body parts, such as shoulders, elbows, heels and hip bone. It is usually filled with water, gel or foam and is also used for providing relief to patients suffering from pressure ulcers caused by the lack of mobility post-treatment or surgery. Some of the common types of pressure relief devices include static air mattresses, foam- and gel-based mattresses, and dynamic air therapy and kinetic beds. These devices ensure that the patient’s skin is not deprived of oxygen by continuously being compressed under the bodyweight, thereby minimizing the development of sores or ulcers.
The increasing prevalence of pressure ulcers, along with rising awareness regarding the available treatment options for diabetic ulcers, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population across the globe is also providing a boost to the market growth. The aging population is highly susceptible to terminal illnesses that require a prolonged hospital stay and limited bodily movements to maximize recovery. This enhances the risks of developing pressure ulcers and other associated issues, thereby increasing the overall product demand. Increasing awareness among the masses regarding the availability of technologically advanced devices is also acting as a growth-inducing factor. Manufacturers are focusing on developing product variants that speed up the healing process and ensure a painless recovery experience for the patient. Other factors, including rising healthcare expenditures and improving healthcare infrastructure, along with the continual launch of innovative products by key industry players, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global pressure relief devices market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
