Regional Insights

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

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 rapidly rising number of hospitals in private sector hospitals, including medical colleges, replacement of traditional devices by advanced ones, and emergence of local players that export most of their products to the developed countries at affordable prices.

Competitive Outlook

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. Ltd. have started expanding their reach internationally and, thus, are emerging as major international players.

Many of the local companies in Asia Pacific, especially in countries such as China and India, are observed to be offering advanced devices at lesser prices in the international market. Hence, the demand for these equipment is constantly rising.

A few of the notable companies that provide mortuary are Roftek Ltd, SM Scientific Instruments Pvt. Ltd.; KUGEL medical GmbH & Co. KG; Leec Ltd; Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc.; Mortech Manufacturing Company, Inc.; HYGECO; Mopec; Mortuary Lift Company; and C.F. di Ciro Fiocchetti & C. s.n.c.
