Durable medical equipment plays a major part in long-term remote care after surgery at home or any other healthcare setting. This is also estimated to propel market growth. Additionally, the stringent regulatory guidelines in developed countries and the lack of skilled professionals for this equipment are said to hinder the industry growth.

The anticipated growth in the annual spending for Medicare (7.9%) is projected to contribute significantly to the increase in the national health expenditure over the forecast period.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the durable medical equipment market initially due to the lack of accessibility of the products to the customers. The pandemic has affected the operations and financial condition of various market players. The DME suppliers have faced interruptions in the logistics, such as significant delays and order cancellations, as a result of public health and economic emergencies related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The rising chronic diseases have directed resulted in an increasing demand for DME. Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the region. An estimated 608,570 Americans will die from cancer in 2021. As per the National Cancer Institute Report 2018, approximately 1.7 million people in the U.S. were diagnosed with cancer. Diabetes is another serious chronic disease that is responsible for market growth. In the U.S., 1 out of 10 people have diabetes and 11.3% of the U.S. population is living with diabetes.

Medicare Part-B beneficiaries pay 20% of the approved cost of the product and the remaining 80% is paid by Medicare.

Product Insights

The monitoring and therapeutic devices held the largest market share of 89.4% in 2021 due to the increasing demand for health monitoring devices such as wristwatches or fitness bands. Increasing patient preference for at-home medical treatment or remote medical services over an in-patient setting is contributing to the segment growth. The other product segments include bathroom safety devices, personal mobility devices, and medical furniture.

The bathroom safety devices and medical furniture segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of over 6.8% during the forecast period. The increasing geriatric population, chronic illness, and the requirement for the medical furniture such as medical beds, transport chairs, etc. are likely to create more need & demand for mobility products over the forecast period as these factors generally reduce the ability to move and perform physical tasks to maintain independent functioning.

End-use Insights

The end-use segment consists of hospitals, nursing homes, home healthcare, and other end-users. Hospitals led the end-use segment with 34.2% in 2021 on account of the rising number of patient admission due to the increasing chronic diseases and healthcare needs.

Home healthcare is expected to witness the highest growth rate of 6.4% over the forecast period due to the cost-saving approach for the patient to get remote healthcare services and the rising demand for remote equipment for homecare use.

Regional Insights

The U.S. accounted highest market share of 82.2% in 2021. The rapid adoption of advanced equipment in the U.S. has allowed the region to account for a larger market share.
