Global Statistics Representing Pressure Relief Mattress Market Scenario

A pressure relief mattress has foam, air, gel, or water inside it to distribute the pressure or load. It provides comfort and plays a vital role in the treatment and prevention of pressure injuries. Thus, the prevalence of pressure-related injuries propels the demand for pressure relief mattress globally.

The global pressure relief mattress market was USD 966.6 million in 2019 and is expected to reach a value of USD 1,597 million by 2029.

Substantial investment in healthcare facilities is providing impetus to the pressure relief mattress market.

Economies around the world are taking adequate steps in infrastructure development — and healthcare is one of the key development areas. Countries, such as China and India, have opened up the gates for foreign direct investment in the healthcare sector, owing to which a slew of companies are striving to cement their positions in these regions. This has resulted in an increase in the demand for pressure relief mattresses as the number of hospitals is increasing.

Increasing awareness about pressure injuries is spurring the demand for pressure relief mattresses.

Governments have taken the issue of pressure injuries into grave consideration and are trying to keep up with the quality of hospitals around. As per the CEO of Bruin Biometrics LLC, a medical technology company, the U.S. spends close to USD 26,800 million on the treatment of pressure ulcers every year. Pressure relief mattresses are one of the primary sources by which pressure ulcers can be prevented.

The solid filled mattress segment expected to reach a value of USD 637.12 million by 2029, up from USD 269 million in 2016, with a CAGR of 4.32%

Solid-filled mattresses, such as foam, are static mattresses of single or multiple pressure-relieving foams. The foam remains static and relieves pressure by evenly distributing load at continuous low pressure. Nowadays, companies have developed hybrid mattresses that are a combination of static and alternating cells and available in both foam and air-filled forms.  A pump is required for filling alternating air cells periodically.

Foam-filled mattresses are generally used for grade 1 type of pressure ulcers as long as there is room for turning the patient. They also have a cross-cut or textured upper surface for conformity and raise skin temperature as foam acts as an insulator. These mattresses are usually preferred for patients with a high risk of developing sores but still have mobility.

Indirect sales channel to grow faster than the direct sales channel with a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, 2016–2029

The indirect sales channel covers retail stores, online stores, and sales through distributors. Companies can set up ties with retail stores to sell, and online stores, such as e-commerce sites, can also be utilized as a part of the indirect sales channel for selling.

As per leading market players, the sales of differentiated and innovative products is driven by knowledgeable salespersons. To ensure a high-quality buying experience, players are focusing on building and improving their sales capabilities by expanding their distribution network around the globe. These distributors employ knowledgeable and experienced staff capable of providing product advice, service, and training. They also employ a variety of indirect distribution channels, such as third-party network, wholesalers, retailers, and value-added resellers. However, the distribution channel lowers the profit margin of manufacturers, which hampers the growth of the channel.

The recent COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted the supply chain and created a blip in the financial markets globally. The ongoing pandemic has shifted the focus from service-based industries and luxury goods market to essential goods & services. This is likely to create upswings for the pressure relief mattresses in the near future. However, there is likely to be an increase in the trade barriers owing to the protectionist measures in the forthcoming quarter, that could hamper the growth of the market since many global players are dependent on China for raw materials and parts to make final assembly of the pharmaceutical products.

Regional Insights

Europe market expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.84% from USD 279.1 million in 2016 to USD 442.9 million in 2029 and hold the lion’s share.

The Netherlands

In Europe, pressure injuries are more prevalent in countries such as Belgium, Sweden, the Netherlands, and the U.K. Pressure injury patients have to face several consequences, which include increased pain, decreased vitals, reduced mobility, and a lower quality of life. As per the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP), roughly 20% of patients suffer some kind of pressure injury. The Netherlands has taken assiduous efforts in trying to curb these injuries. The EPUAP estimates the Netherlands spends about 1% of its healthcare budget on pressure ulcers.

The U.K.

The prevalence of pressure ulcers in the U.K. is high, but prevention and treatment guidelines are appropriately laid out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). It categorically recommends that people with grade 1 and 2 ulcers should receive a minimum provision of a foam pressure relief mattress. For people with grade 3/4 pressure ulcers, an alternating pressure mattress or high specification foam mattress with an alternating pressure overlay or a continuous low-pressure system is recommended.

The National Health Service (NHS) has reported a decrease in the number of pressure ulcer cases, but there were still 200,000 people in 2017–18 suffering from pressure ulcers. It is also reported that a majority of pressure ulcers occur post-admission.

The pressure ulcer prevalence in countries such as France and Italy is relatively low. Still, efforts are being taken to minimize the number of patients as the cost of treating pressure ulcers is more expensive than investing in equipment, such as supports and mattresses, for prevention.

COVID-19

Europe has been severely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. As countries are coming out of this crisis, they have already started giving relief and stimulus packages for the economy. Many top pressure relief mattress manufacturers have their bases in Europe and are likely to gain from the current scenario.

The North America market is expected to reach a value of USD 424.3 million by the year 2029, up from USD 175 million in 2016, with a CAGR of 4.37%.

The U.S.

Pressure ulcers or bedsores are common ailments in the U.S. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality states that 2.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from pressure ulcers every year. This indicates that many people are affected by pressure injuries in the U.S., and there is potential for the pressure relief mattress market, as these mattresses are crucial in the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers.

As per data by the CHPSO founded by the California Hospital Association from 150 hospitals in 2016, 14,904 pressure injuries were reported in the year, 47% of which were affected those aged 18–64, while 53% affected those aged 65 and above. The vulnerable population that is older, mature, and aged is on the upward trajectory, as per CHPSO.

Canada

In Canada, the prevalence of pressure injuries is quite high compared to the U.S. As per Wounds Canada, the number of pressure injuries that occur during a hospital stay is also high. The cost of treating a pressure injury in Canada is steep, which may be one of the reasons why Canadians prefer home treatment for pressure injuries. Also, the prevalence of pressure injuries is higher in disabled people due to a lack of mobility. As home treatment for pressure injury increases, the demand for pressure relief mattresses is expected to grow.

COVID-19

The emergence of COVID-19 is a subject of observation, and so its future consequence on the market. The overall sentiment about healthcare will be more severe, and countries will demand more security in terms of the facilities provided in hospitals.
