The global pressure relief mattress market size is expected to reach USD 2.45 billion by 2028

Pressure Relief Mattress Industry Overview

The global pressure relief mattress market size is expected to reach USD 2.45 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2028. The global market is predominantly driven by the increasing orthopedic diseases, increasing prevalence of obesity among children, growing geriatric population, and increasing awareness regarding the prevention of pressure injuries. According to the U.S. Department of Health Human Services, in 2017-2018, the prevalence of childhood obesity was recorded over 19% in the U.S.

A pressure relief mattress has materials such as foam, air, gel, or water inside it to distribute the pressure or load of an individual. These mattresses provide comfort and play a vital role in the treatment and prevention of pressure injuries. The increasing prevalence of ulcer and orthopedic diseases across the globe has a significant impact on the market. The U.S. spends approximately USD 26.8 billion every year on the treatment of pressure ulcers, according to the CEO of Bruin Biometrics LLC (a medical technology company). Pressure relief mattresses are a significant source in the prevention of pressure-related injuries.

The market for pressure relief mattresses observed positive growth in 2020. The growth can be attributed to the hospitalization of a large number of people around the world. The demand was observed to be high in both hospital and consumer applications. Home isolation and treatment of COVID-19 patients at home created a significant demand for these mattresses. The demand for pressure relief mattresses is high among the geriatric population and this population was majorly affected by COVID-19 due to their weak immune system.

Pressure Relief Mattress Market Segmentation

Grand View Research has segmented the global pressure relief mattress market on the basis of type, distribution channel, and region:

Based on the Type, the market is segmented into Solid-filled Mattress, Air-filled Mattress, and Fluid-filled Mattress.

  • The air-filled mattress segment dominated the market and held a revenue share of over 55.0% in 2020. The segment is expected to expand at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period in terms of revenue. Air-filled mattresses are one of the most used mattresses for the prevention of pressure sores. The pressure is distributed over larger areas, which creates a better interface.
  • The solid-filled mattress segment held the second-largest revenue share in 2020. Solid-filled mattresses are usually static mattresses made-up of foam or fiber. Some foam mattresses such as memory foam mattresses are helpful in preventing pressure injuries. In the solid-filled mattress, the foam remains in the static position and relieves pressure by equally distributing load at steady low pressure. 

Based on the Distribution Channel, the market is segmented into Direct Sales, and Indirect Sales.

  • The indirect sales segment held the largest revenue share of over 55.0% in 2020. The indirect sales channel includes distributors, retail stores, and third-party e-commerce Buyers usually buy these products through third-party stores, distributors, and online platforms owing to their convenience and easy availability. The companies operating in the market can set up ties with third-party distributors and retail stores to increase their sales.
  • The direct sales segment is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period in terms of revenue. The direct sales channel eliminates the meddling of any third-party distributor as the products are directly shipped to the customers. The manufacturers can directly sell their products through an online or offline platform. Moreover, the firms or organizations that use direct channels require their logistics and transport vehicles.
