Global Patient Positioning Systems Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the global patient positioning systems market is expected to be worth USD 1536 million by 2029 from USD 1233 million in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% during the forecast period.

Patient positioning systems are the patient handling devices used to keep the patient in a required position or immobilize them during surgery. These devices are also used during the cancer therapy/ radiation therapy or precision therapy. The patient positioning system creates an advantage point for both patients and doctors, and this equipment helps enhance the comfort levels of a patient post-operation. In addition, it reduces pain and stimulates the healing process, and a wide variety of these apparatuses are available in the market.


The growing number of accidents and technological advancements in patient positioning systems are majorly accelerating market growth.

The global patient positioning systems market is majorly driven by the factors such as an increase in the number of surgeries due to a rise in the prevalence of diseases, growing hospital investments, and a surge in government funding. Additionally, increasing incidences of chronic diseases are one of the major factors accelerating market growth. The emergence of the latest technologies in the medical sector, which favors the end-users, is anticipated to set up growth opportunities for the market. Furthermore, the rise in the number of minimally invasive surgeries due to various health disorders among people is extraordinarily escalating the growth of the patient positioning systems market. These systems effectively provide convenience for the patients after surgeries and reduce pain by correcting their position. This attribute is significantly influencing the demand of the market.


However, product recalls, and the implementation of excise duty on the sale of taxable medical devices are some restraints to the growth of the patient positioning systems market.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Patient Positioning Systems Market

COVID-19 is an infectious disease caused by the most recent novel coronavirus. In March 2020, the World Health Organization announced COVID-19 as the pandemic and the emergence of healthcare. The emergence of the outbreak of COVID-19 has shown a positive and negative impact on the pharmaceutical and life sciences industries. The patient positioning systems market hurt the market growth during the initial period of 2020. Due to the COVID-19 positive cases surge, a nationwide lockdown and a ban on transportation to control the disease transmission have been implemented. The patient positioning systems market has a supply chain globally, but COVID-19 has disrupted the supply chain. Increased COVID-19 led to the unavailability of beds for the patients.  Despite the negative impact, the market is estimated to have a better market share. After the uplift of the lockdown, the demand has increased market growth because the growing number of COVID-19 and other disease-infected patients require a bed, ventilators, and other surgical devices. As per the required demand, manufacturers in the industry raise their production capacity to meet the hospital's and patients' requirements.
