The segment is driven by key factors such as increase in demand for technologically advanced stretcher chairs in multispecialty and super-specialty hospitals, and rise in bariatric population whose transport via non-motorized stretchers might be a challenge. Surge in the number of small scale hospitals especially in developing countries, cost effectiveness, and ease of operation are the major factors likely to boost the growth of the manual stretcher chairs segment during the forecast period. Moreover, low cost of manual stretcher chairs make these a preferred choice in developing and cost-sensitive markets.

Rise in demand for stretcher chairs in home care settings for geriatric patients is projected to drive the segment.
