Prime determinants of growth
Increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases, rise in investments in R&D by pharmaceutical companies, and surge in surgical procedures for ophthalmic, dental and ENT disorders drive the growth of the global specialty medical chairs market. However, high cost of specialty medical chairs hinders the market growth.

- The Covid-19 pandemic made a negative impact on the revenue of the specialty medical chairs market. This is due to decline in the number of visits to hospitals and clinics for ophthalmic, dental, and ENT purposes to prevent cross-contamination. This, in turn, reduced the demand for these chairs.
- For instance, Dentsply Sirona highlighted that the net sales lowered by 7.6% for the first quarter of 2020, owing to low patient volumes and postponement of non-urgent procedures. In terms of revenue, the downfall was observed by several companies in the market. However, the demand is expected to recover post-pandemic.
- Manufacturing activities were hindered due to lockdown restrictions and shortage of raw materials. However, the supply chain is expected to recover post-pandemic and manufacturing will continue with full capacity.
