According to the Graphical Research new growth forecast report titled Asia Pacific Intensive Care Beds Market Share is set to exceed USD 1 billion by 2026.

According to the recently published article, on 1st May 2020, around 40,000 covid-19 cases were reported in India.

As the covid-19 pandemic continues to rage throughout the region, a growing number of hospitals encountering a dearth of intensive care beds is collapsing the proper functionality.

In addition, rising geriatric population prone to chronic diseases during this pandemic are some other factors fueling the market growth positively.
