In this market, fixed and adjustable stretchers are the major product types used for patient handling in the hospital. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that adjustable stretchers are expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period.

By technology type, the stretcher market is segmented into motorized stretchers and non-motorized stretchers. The non-motorized stretcher segment is expected to dominate over the forecast period, as they are highly affordable and do not require skilled caregivers to handle patients as is the case with motorized stretchers.

By end use, the stretcher market is segmented into hospitals and clinic & ambulance facilities. The hospital segment is expected to remain the largest segment over the forecast period.

North America is expected to remain the largest market over the forecast period because of its well-developed healthcare infrastructure. APAC is expected to witness the highest growth rate over the forecast period due to the increasing number of hospitals and operating rooms in existing hospitals, and the continued development of various medical facilities.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the industry, include the increasing use of advanced hospital stretchers and increasing use of motorized stretchers. Stryker Corporation, Hill-Rom Holdings Inc., Fu Shun Hsing Technology Co. Ltd. Getinge Group, and Medline Medical Equipment, Inc. are among the major suppliers of the stretcher market.
