Hospital stretchers market across the globe is witnessing steady transformation from conventional non-motorized stretchers to motorized stretchers. Hospital stretchers are equipment typically designed for the transportation of patients safely within a hospital or outside hospital premise. Since, past couple of years, there has been a constant growth in hospital stretchers market and this trend is expected to continue in the near future. Steady growth in the market was witnessed due to the long average life span of stretchers (7 years to 10 years), availability of refurbished equipment and lack of innovation in this field. However, growing demand for technically advanced stretchers, rising number of surgical procedures and increasing prevalence of chronic disorders are major factors anticipated to fuel the market growth. Globally, rise in elderly population is also being considered as one of the major factor that is likely to boost the demand for hospital stretchers as aged population is more susceptible to numerous disorders and require effective care.

Fixed-height stretchers, adjustable stretchers, bariatric stretchers and radiographic stretchers are various types of stretchers that are available in the market. Of these, in 2012, fixed height stretchers held the majority share of this market followed by adjustable stretchers and bariatric stretchers. Bariatric stretchers have been identified as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period due to increasing obese population and rising surgical procedures such as gastric bypass, banding operations and stomach reduction. Providing effective healthcare services to these patients remain a prime healthcare challenge hence, several manufacturers have launched stretchers that can withstand weight up to 700 pounds.
