The Global Refurbished Medical Devices Market is projected to reach USD 9.5 billion by 2020, and is growing at a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period from 2015 to 2021. Refurbished medical devices are products that have been tested and verified to function properly and are free of defects.
The refurbishment process includes initial physical check, testing of all equipment parameters, replacement of non-functioning parts & components, testing & calibration of all accessories, peripherals & modules, recording of all changes made in the equipment, and approval by the quality control department. The devices that are commonly refurbished are designed to have long-use periods.
The global refurbished medical devices market is segmented on the basis of Diagnostic Equipment (Ultrasound Systems, X-Ray Machines, CT Machines, MRI Machines, Patient Monitoring Devices, Nuclear Medicine Devices, Mammography Equipment, Telemetry Systems, Cath Labs), Therapeutic Equipment (Minimally Invasive Devices, Heart Lung Machines, Radiation Oncology Systems, Infusion Pumps, Non-Invasive Devices), and Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Rest of the WoSeimens rld).
There are two distinct groups that refurbish medical devices. The refurbishment in the first group is performed by the OEM and the products are sent to the medical institutions of developed countries. The refurbishment in the second type is done by a third party and the devices are sold to the medical institutions of developing countries.
Factors such as the most affordable and viable alternative to expensive high-end equipment, reduction in electronic and toxic waste, e-Marketing are boosting the sales of this market and the rise in the number of patient population are some of the reasons enhancing the growth of the market.
However, huge taxes levied on the import of medical devices, absence of standardized refurbishment procedures, lack of awareness regarding refurbished equipment, and unwillingness to purchase refurbished devices are some of the reasons hampering the growth of this market.
The major players of this market are GE Healthcare, Seimens Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Philips Healthcare, Toshiba, and DRE Medical among others.
