Medical cart, also known as medical trolley, is a mobile equipment, which comprises set of drawers, compartments, trays, and shelves for use in hospital and medical settings to carry, transport, and dispense emergency supplies, medicines, medical instruments, and medical devices. Medical carts form a crucial aspect of medical aid, as they facilitate the ability to record, store, and dispense equipment, supplies, pharmaceuticals, patient information, and related data along with patient care. Various medical carts are available in the industry that are designed to cater to surgical and emergency needs of the operating room and other medical settings.
Upsurge in use of electronic health record (EHR) and electronic medication administration record (eMAR) to avoid medical errors, rise in need for rapid & easy accessibility to medical supplies and equipment, and growth in focus on improvement of patient safety & nursing efficiency are the key factors that drive the market growth. Furthermore, development of advanced technologies, such as telemedicine, fuel the demand and application of medical carts. However, high costs of medical carts, limited availability of funds, and dearth of skilled professionals could impede the market growth. The global medical carts market accounted for $571 million in 2016, and is anticipated to reach at $1,302 million by 2023, registering a CAGR of 12.4% from 2017 to 2023.
The global medical carts market is segmented on the basis of type (by value and volume) and region (by value and volume). Based on type, it is classified into emergency, procedure, anesthesia, and other carts. The global medical carts market is divided based on region into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA.
