Global Refurbished Medical Equipment Market to Reach US$ 23.6 Billion by 2027, Impelled by Rising Need for Affordable Medical Equipment

April 07, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Refurbished Medical Equipment Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global refurbished medical equipment market reached a value of US$ 11.8 Billion in 2021. Refurbished medical equipment are devices that are restored to their original safety and effectiveness. These devices are reconditioned and repaired, and then are installed with software and hardware updates without altering the original specifications or their intended use. They further undergo a rigorous inspection and meticulous testing to detect worn parts that are replaced to resume the effectiveness of the devices. The damaged and the old parts are also cleaned, disinfected, painted and replaced to meet the OEM specifications. As a result, these machines are available in the market at competitive prices, which have contributed to their widespread popularity across various clinics, hospitals and healthcare institutions.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Refurbished Medical Equipment Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the growing requirement for cost-effective, technologically advanced medical devices. Numerous healthcare professionals are adopting refurbished equipment as they aid them in accessing cutting-edge medical devices at extremely low prices. These devices can be procured from reliable providers to ensure optimal condition and durability of the machines. Along with this, numerous healthcare institutions are using these devices to offer affordable services to patients without compromising on quality. Moreover, increasing privatization in the healthcare sector acts as a major growth-inducing factor. This is further facilitated by the growing incidences of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disorders, and the rising geriatric population, who are more susceptible to any kind of diseases. Apart from this, increasing governmental efforts toward sustainable development, coupled with an overall rise in environmental consciousness, is further facilitating the adoption of these equipment as they aid in reducing the carbon footprint. The rising trend of medical tourism and the increasing number of partnerships among OEMs and third-party refurbishment service providers are some of the other factors contributing to the market growth. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 23.6 Billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 12.49% during 2022-2027.
