MEA Hospital Beds Market Size (2023 to 2028)

The size of the Middle East and Africa hospital beds market is estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 2.5% during the forecast period.

The growth of the hospital beds market in the Middle East and Africa is attributed to key factors such as the growing number of chronic diseases, the growing number of hospitals and clinics, and the growing number of public-private partnerships in the healthcare sector. The growth of the hospital supplies market in the Middle East and Africa is mainly driven by the growing number of hospitals, the aging population, and the increasing emergence of community-based illnesses. The GCC countries have robust global demand for medical devices and, due to this increasing demand, the healthcare sector is on the rise. Due to the growth of the healthcare sector, the market for hospital supplies in GCC countries is also growing.

The Middle East and Africa region rely heavily on imported hospital supplies for most medical products, including beds. Other factors driving the market are rising healthcare spending, increasing cases of community-based illnesses, and growing awareness of hospital infections (HAIs).

The price of beds and a reduction in the average length of stay for patients are likely to constrain market growth. The Middle East and Africa region are heavily dependent on imported hospital supplies for most products. Saudi Arabia is estimated to have a total imported value of hospital supplies of around US $ 125 million in 2015, which increased to around the US $ 315 million in 2019. Many imported products have a high cost which is an obstacle to the growing market in this region. Other factors hamper the growth of the MEA hospital beds market, including the emergence of home care services and strict regulatory bodies.

Impact of COVID-19 on the MEA hospital beds market:

With the start of community spread in most countries, infections are increasing among vulnerable population groups such as the elderly and people with co-morbidities such as lung disease, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. In nursing homes and assisted living facilities, death rates from COVID-19 can reach 25 to 55%. Since hospital beds per 1,000 population are less than desirable in most countries, there is a high risk that hospitals will run out of beds to treat critically ill patients.

The market also benefits from increased government funding to expand public health systems and political decisions to pay off reforms.

Hospitals around the world are struggling to add hospital beds and critical care capacity beyond their normal capacity. The laser-like approach focuses on hospital supply chain issues to ensure that the supply of all critical care products, including intensive care units and medical-surgical hospital beds, Patient monitoring devices, and physical assessment tools and consumables, meet growing demand. As the entire healthcare and value chain support system ramps up to support the response to COVID-19, the hospital beds market is expected to experience promising growth during the forecast period.
