The platform lifts market is projected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

Platform lifts are mechanical devices consisting of a platform that can be raised or lowered vertically to provide easy access to elevated areas.

These lifts also help healthcare professionals move medical equipment and supplies more efficiently, allowing them to provide timely and effective patient care. The growing healthcare needs pushed the establishment of hospitals and medical centers which propelled the platform lift market growth.
