Market Dynamics

Drivers

Increasing cases of malnutrition in developing countries

The increasing problem of malnutrition in developing and underdeveloped countries is causing many physicians worldwide to use the BMI of a patient as a critical measure for planning treatment and care options. Their weights help in determining the dosage of the medicines and the proper treatment required over the period. So, with the increasing cases of malnutrition much rise can be seen in the demand for the scales by the healthcare centers in developing and underdeveloped countries.

Rising population and Increase in obesity

With an increase in the population, life is getting fast-paced eating habits have also been changing with a rapid rate favoring fast food or unhealthy food leading to a rising number of cases of obesity among children and teenagers thus raising the demand of the target market in the bariatric healthcare centers. Of the U.S. population, 30 to 50 percent are obese in need of bariatric surgeon services. Bariatric surgeons need different kinds of weighing scales to get a good evaluation of their patient's needs. Rising numbers of these kinds of centers are raising the demand for the scales in the healthcare sector. 

Restraint

Higher weight scales are providing lower accuracy

Medical professionals have to handle obese patients with the rise of an obesity epidemic. Thirty-eight million Americans weigh more than 300 pounds and 400,000 weigh more than 400. There are scales with high capacities but at higher weights, they are not as reliable. The accuracy of certain scales decreases with the rise in patient weight. The findings may indicate inaccurate measurements, resulting in an imprecise depiction of the weight of a patient over time. Healthcare guidelines suggest that scales be accurate to 1 pound of weight per 150 pounds to ensure correct dosing and treatment. Although minor inaccuracies may not be relevant in measuring obese adults, it may be dangerous to inaccurately weigh oncology patients, kids, or babies to ascertain doses of medication. For example, a four-year study of Pennyslevia state health event records shows 479 instances of prescription errors resulting from patient weight inaccuracy. Of these incidents, 67 percent resulted in an incorrect dose being given to a patient, with 1.3 percent of the cases causing sufficient harm to warrant further treatment.
