Report Overview

The global medical equipment maintenance market size was valued at USD 35.3 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.9% from 2021 to 2027. Growing global demand for medical devices, rising prevalence of life-threatening diseases leading to higher diagnostic rates, and rising demand for the refurbished medical equipment are expected to drive the market for medical device maintenance during the forecast period. Currently, several medical devices such as syringe pumps, electrocardiographs, X-ray units, centrifuge, ventilator units, ultrasound, and autoclave are available in the healthcare industry. These are used for treatment, diagnosis, analysis, and educational purposes across the healthcare industry.

U.S. medical equipment maintenance market size, by equipment, 2016 - 2027 (USD Million) 

As most medical devices are sophisticated, complex, and expensive, their maintenance is a very critical task. Maintenance of medical devices ensures that the devices are error free and operating accurately. In addition, its role in reducing errors, calibration, and risk of contamination is expected to contribute to market growth. Moreover, in the coming years, the requirement of technological expertise in remote maintenance and management of devices is expected to grow. This trend, in turn, is anticipated to drive strategic decisions for the industry. 

Furthermore, increasing global disposable income, rising medical device approvals, and growing adoption of new technologies in emerging countries are projected to further fuel the sales of medical devices, in turn, promoting the maintenance demand. Due to the growing geriatric population, higher expenditure is witnessed for remote patient monitoring devices. And these devices require higher maintenance, which is expected to carry on over the forecast period, thus contributing to the market revenue.

As per a survey carried out by the Population Reference Bureau in 2019, at present, there are over 52 million people in the U.S. aged 65 years and above. Whereas, this number is anticipated to increase to 61 million by 2027. The geriatric population presents a greater exposure to chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, and other lifestyle chronic disorders. Hospitals and healthcare delivering facilities also significantly contribute to medical equipment maintenance revenue.

Equipment Insights

Based on equipment the market for medical device maintenance has been segmented into imaging equipment, electromedical equipment, endoscopic devices, surgical instruments, and other medical equipment. The imaging equipment segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.8% in 2020, which includes several devices such as CT, MRI, Digital X-Ray, ultrasound, and others. A rise in the global diagnostic procedures and increasing heart diseases are driving the segment.

The surgical instruments segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 8.4% over the forecast period. This can be attributed to augmenting global surgical procedures due to the introduction of non-invasive and robotic solutions. According to the Plastic Surgery Statistics Report, about 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures were performed in 2019 in the U.S.

Service Insights

Based on type, the market for medical equipment maintenance is segmented into preventive maintenance, corrective maintenance, and operational maintenance. The corrective maintenance segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 57.1% in 2020. It is an unscheduled activity to correct a device breakdown or component failure that has occurred or has intermittently occurred in the device. Corrective maintenance activity includes replacement or restoration of systems or components used to reinstate the physical integrity, appearance, and/or performance of a medical device after an unexpected failure.

Global medical equipment maintenance market share, by service, 2020 (%)

The preventive maintenance segment is anticipated to register the highest CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period. Rising focus on preventive maintenance of medical devices as it helps to enhance patient care quality and safety. It involves maintenance of the devices in a scheduled manner to prevent costly repairs down the line. It also helps to improve device reliability and enhances day-to-day operations.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 38.4% in 2020 owing to the advanced medical infrastructure, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, higher healthcare spending, and a large number of hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers in the region. In addition, higher demand for advanced medical devices in the region is anticipated to propel the market growth in the region.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth over the forecast period due to the growing geriatric population, government initiatives to provide better healthcare services, and rising healthcare spending in the region. For instance, the Government of India launched the Ayushman Bharat Yojana in 2018 to offer free access to healthcare for 40% of people in the country.

Key Companies & Market Share Insights
