The total support surfaces market was valued at nearly $2 billion in 2011. The U.S. market for therapeutic support surfaces (TSS) includes:
- specialty bed systems,
- therapeutic mattresses,
- mattress overlays and
- bariatric beds.
Sales of this durable capital equipment suffered as a result of the economic recession of 2008 to 2009, but has since recovered. Changes in Medicare reimbursement, as well as the growing awareness of pressure ulcer prevention and education on the benefits of TSS products, will help drive unit sales, rentals and the average selling price.
In 2011, the bariatric beds market exhibited the highest growth over 2010. The growing obese population will be the primary driver of market growth. However, obese patients are also becoming heavier on average. This will create a demand for more premium products with higher weight capacities, as well as drive growth in the long term care and home care settings.
Within the therapeutic support surfaces market, companies such as Hill-Rom, Stryker, KCI and Invacare led the market, among many others. This report provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of market revenues by device type, market forecasts through 2018, unit sales, average selling prices, market drivers and limiters and a detailed competitive analysis, including manufacturer market shares and product portfolios.
