Germany mortuary equipment market size

The number of hospitals has increased over time along with the growing population and increasing demand for world-class facilities. The rise in the number of morgues is directly proportional to the rise in a number of hospitals as most of the hospitals have mortuaries. In addition, the number of private morgues has reportedly increased in past few years as the death care industry provides a huge scope for revenue generation in customized funeral services.

Technological advancements have a significant impact on the mortuary equipment market growth. The introduction of automated devices such as autopsy platforms, dissection tables, and embalming platforms is expected to increase the demand of these devices. Integration of hydraulics and mechatronics in these equipment helps increase the convenience of professionals and reduces procedural timing as well as increases efficiency.

The demand for novel refrigeration and storage units is on the rise, with the availability of technologically advanced units in various sizes. These include small-sized units for infant cadavers to larger sizes for the obese. The demand for a variety of sizes is high for optimal use of floor space in morgues. The replacement of traditional platforms with these advanced ones is expected to play an important role in driving the growth of the mortuary equipment industry.

Product Insights

The refrigeration unit segment captured the largest share in 2016. Availability of storage units in various sizes and advanced technologies that require minimum power supply are the prime factors boosting growth. Increasing demand for this equipment in private mortuaries is expected to fuel segment growth during the forecast period. In addition, the rising demand for customized storage units that help in the transfer of cadavers to perform the final rituals is expected to boost the segment growth.

Autopsy platforms and other equipment segments are expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate during the forecast period. Availability of technologically advanced products and replacement of traditional autopsy techniques are the factors expected to drive the segment growth.

Regional Insights

North America captured the largest share in 2015. The dominance of the region is attributed to factors such as the availability of a large number of private mortuaries as well as hospital morgues and a high adoption rate for technologically advanced products. In addition, the majority of the population in this region follows Christianity, which has a tradition of performing final rituals by burial. This requires maintenance of the cadaver until the arrangements are done. Thus, the requirement for cadaver storage facilities and body embalming processes is higher in the region.

The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to show the fastest growth rate during the study period. The rapid development of the market in the region can be attributed to the factors such as the rapidly rising number of hospitals in private sector hospitals, including medical colleges, the replacement of traditional devices with advanced ones, and the emergence of local players that export most of their products to the developed countries at affordable prices.

Mortuary Equipment Market Share Insights

The market is highly fragmented. Mostly, the mortuary equipment is supplied by local companies. However, companies such as Mortech Manufacturing Company, Inc. and SM Scientific Instruments Pvt.
