According to this latest publication from Meticulous Research®, the medical/hospital beds market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2020 to reach $5.23 billion by 2027.

Moreover, untapped emerging markets and launch of technologically advanced, electrically powered ‘Smart Beds’ and ‘Robotic Beds’ creates significant growth opportunities in this market.

COVID-19 – Driving Force for Hospital Beds Market

Current COVID-19 pandemic has increased the demand for advanced healthcare facilities and created a burden on healthcare industry in terms of prevention, isolation, and providing treatment to the infected patients. It started with a few deaths in Wuhan, China, with the earliest reported case on November 17th, 2019. Since then the exponential graph for the infected population has grown drastically in several other countries across the globe. Several highly infected countries such as the U.S., Italy, Spain, France, and the U.K. are experiencing shortfall for the healthcare supplies, including personal protective equipment, hospital beds, and ventilators, due to disrupted supply chain, economic loss, and reduced confidence on the quality of the imported supplies. As a result of this, there will be a huge demand for the medical/hospital beds in many countries all over the globe.

To tackle this situation government authorities from various countries are taking several initiatives and focusing on increasing local manufacturing capacity to overcome the shortfall for various healthcare supplies including hospital beds. Some of the recent initiatives are as below:



Wuhan (China)

There are an additional 10 temporary hospitals reconstructed from gymnasium and exhibition centers, which are for mild patients. Moreover, in Wuhan include two new temporary hospitals with 2,600 beds, plus many makeshift hospitals to increase bed capacity. Bed capacity within Wuhan has increased to greater than 50,000. 

Odisha (India)

The Odisha government on 26th March 2020 decided to set up two 500-bed hospitals to exclusively treat Covid-19 patients. The hospitals, being set up in partnership with Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences and SUM Hospital, will be functional in a fortnight.

England (U.K.)

NHS entered into an agreement with private hospitals so as to provide extra 8,000 hospital beds across England to tackle COVID-19.


Hospital Wards that are used for other purposes such as operation, examination etc. can be modified and prepared for ICU purposes.


In April 2020, The India Railways has converted 20,000 old train carriages into isolation wards for patients suspected with the COVID-19 infection
