MARKET DRIVERS:

Rising incidences of chronic diseases and other health disorders, increasing adoption of sedentary lifestyles, and food habits changes are majorly promoting the growth rate of the global medical lifting sling market.

Over the past few years, there has been an increase in the number of obese patients, which is also one of the factors accelerating the market's growth rate. Furthermore, medical lifting sling helps patients during their treatment in hospitals, where this attribute accelerates the market's growth rate. In addition, the rapidly increasing elderly population is propelling market growth. 

Growing investments in hospitals' construction with the latest equipment worldwide create chances for the market to grow. Besides, the rise in the government's support in launching reimbursement schemes, which are entirely in favor of ordinary people, is also likely to boost the market demand. Medical lifting sling tools are convenient and readily available in stores, fueling the market growth. Constant economic growth in developed and developing countries potentially increased the market share over the past few years. The emergence of the latest technologies in the medical sector significantly influences the growth rate of the medical lifting sling market. An increasing number of chronic diseases where there is a need for the patient to stay longer days in hospitals magnifies the market's growth rate. Also, escalating expenditure on health care is increasing the growth of the medical lifting sling market.

Furthermore, the rising birth rate and growing prevalence of life expectancy among individuals broaden the market's growth rate. These tools are handy for patients who are disabled, weak, or obese in lifting safely. This attribute is elevating the demand for the medical lifting sling market. 

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

However, fluctuations in the availability of raw materials increase the final products' prices, slowly impeding the market's demand. Due to the lack of complete knowledge of the latest technologies, the shortage of skilled manufacturers is challenging for market growth. Besides, these tools are difficult to carry heavy patients, impacting the market's growth. Less training programs in controlling medical lifting slings limit the demand for this market. Medical lifting slings can be reused, which raises infections from one patient to another, hampering this market's growth rate. 

Impact of COVID-19 on the global medical lifting sling market:

The world is witnessing a severe health crisis causing millions of lives at risk. The new virus is caused by a reagent known as SARS-CoV-2, a coronavirus (COVID-19), and declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). Medical lifting slings, also called patient lifting slings, are used to shift or mobilize patients from one place to another without causing injuries. Lifting slings are such as stretchers, wheelchairs, and many more. Hospitals own these medical lifting slings in bulk. But, when the lockdown was initiated, there was no option for purchasing these patient slings due to transportation problems and a lack of human resources to manufacture them and avoid the virus spread. As a result, many hospitals have seen a shortage of patient lifting slings, as many COVID-19 patients have been admitted. By the end of 2020, large-sized hospitals started ordering bulk lifting slings, and the demand has been expanding, creating a positive impact in the market.
