Based on the type of bed, the hospital bed market has been categorized into general, pediatric, birthing, bariatric, pressure relief, and others. Of all types, the fastest growth during the forecast period in the global market is expected from general beds, with 5.8% CAGR, due to their low cost as compared to other beds.

On the basis of power, the hospital bed market has been categorized into manual, semi-electric, and electric beds. The manual bed category dominated this market during the historical period, with 49.1% contribution in 2017. Due to their economic viability, manual beds are highly preferred by the end users.

Based on treatment, the market has been categorized into acute care, critical care, and long-term care beds. During the forecast period, the hospital bed market for critical care is expected to grow the fastest among all types, with a CAGR of 6.0%. This growth is attributed to the fact that critical-care beds allow lateral tilting of patients, which helps in blood circulation and prevents ulcer formation, and also enables x-ray scanning on bed by pressure redistribution. In addition, these beds provide support to staff due to the presence of multifunctional touch screen pads.

In terms of end user, the hospital bed market has been categorized into hospitals, home care settings, and elderly care facilities. Of these, hospitals held the largest share in the market, with 82.7% contribution in 2017.
