The global medical beds market is projected to reach USD 3.41 billion by 2022 from USD 2.59 billion in 2017, growing at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period (2017–2022).

In this report, the global medical beds market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end user, usage, and region. On the basis of application, the medical beds market is segmented into two categories— intensive care and non-intensive care. The intensive care segment is expected to account for the largest share of the medical beds market. The increasing number of bariatric patients requiring intensive care is the major factor for the growth of this segment.
Based on usage, the medical beds market is segmented into major four segments—acute care beds, psychiatric and bariatric care beds, long-term care beds, and other beds (maternity and rehabilitative beds).

On the basis of end user, the medical beds market is segmented into home care settings, hospitals, and elderly care facilities. The hospitals segment is expected to account for the largest share of the medical beds market in 2017. However, the home care settings segment is expected to have the fastest growth rate in the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing government support to decrease the length of stay of patients inside hospitals.
On the basis of type, medical beds market is divided into manual beds, semi-electric beds, and electric beds. The electric beds segment is expected to dominate the medical beds market in 2017. The large share as well as the high growth of this segment can primarily be attributed to the growing number of patients requiring bariatric care as well as the rising geriatric population across the globe.
On the basis of region, the medical beds market North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the Rest of the World (RoW). APAC is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for medical beds. This is due to the increasing geriatric population and increasing patient volume requiring chronic care in the APAC region.
