Global Market Dynamics/Trends:

Globally, the increasing population and rising incidence of various diseases have resulted in significant rise in healthcare spending. Over the past decade, a number of countries have witnessed a significant growth in healthcare spending as a percentage of their GDP. Moreover, changing demographics and epidemiology are further obscuring this situation. Owing to this, the focus on alternative and more economical methods of treatments, such as home healthcare, is increasing across the globe. The shift to home healthcare is one of several strategies being deployed to reduce the inexorable growth in the cost of delivering healthcare services. As a result, some types of medical devices and home healthcare equipment originally designed for exclusive use in hospitals and clinical settings by trained professionals are being redesigned for use by patients and lay caregivers in home environments. This dramatic shift in the delivery of healthcare is creating new opportunities for manufacturers of home healthcare equipment. 

Market Drivers, Restraints, and Challenges

Since last decade, home medical equipment (HME) market has continued to evolve, as populations age and a growing number of older people wish and are financially able to live in their own homes for as long as possible, rather than going into a nursing home or other institutional care facility. In addition, increasing awareness about the conveniences and cost effectiveness offered by home medical equipment, increase in insured population as a result of the Affordable Care Act, a growing receptivity to home healthcare among physicians and private and public insurers, technological advancements such as tele-health, wearable devices, mobile health applications etc., and government initiatives to promote home healthcare are further contributing to the growth of home medical equipment market. In developed countries like Japan and the U.S., rising healthcare costs have compelled the governments to reduce the length of hospital stay by encouraging homecare practices. Moreover, the concept of homecare is slowly gaining popularity in developing countries such as India that are patient and price-centric markets.

However, patient safety and effectiveness issue are some of the major factors restraining the growth of the global home medical equipment market. To address these patient safety concerns, the U.S. FDA has regulated medical devices used by consumers at home in the same way it regulates all other medical devices. However, in recognition of the growing number of potential safety issues around the use of home healthcare equipment, the FDA announced its plan to provide closer oversight of home healthcare equipment in the United States in April 2010. According to the agency, the FDA’s Medical Device Home Use Initiative will “assure the safety, quality and usability of devices labeled for home use, and provide more information for home care recipients and caregivers to support safe use”.

Market Segmentation:

The global home medical equipment market is mainly segmented into products and geography. The home medical equipment products market is primarily segmented into home tests and patient monitoring equipment which includes fertility tests, pregnancy tests, gender, DNA & parental tests, drug tests, alcohol tests, cholesterol tests, HIV tests, holter monitors, blood pressure monitors, oximeters, heart rate monitors, thermometers, mediscopes, stethoscopes, defibrillators, pedometers, scales & body fat monitors, peak flow meters, apnea monitors, baby monitors, coagulation monitors, and diabetes management devices; home therapeutic equipment which includes home respiratory therapy equipment (continuous positive airway pressure equipment, oxygen delivery equipment, nebulizers & accessories, ventilators & accessories, and humidifiers), home dialysis equipment (home peritoneal dialysis products, home hemodialysis products) home IV equipment ( IV pumps, and other home IV equipment) and others; patient support equipment which includes wheelchairs and related equipment (wheelchairs- manual wheelchairs andpowered wheelchairs), walking assist devices, mobility scooters, medical furniture and accessories, and bathroom safety equipment.

Regional/Country level Trends:

The global home medical equipment market is further segmented by geography into five major continents namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa. These regions are further analyzed at a country level to provide the market size and forecast for each segment and sub-segment of the market in various countries across the globe. North America dominates the global home medical equipment market owing to the presence of high sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, positive response to the home healthcare, favorable reimbursement policies, increasing investment in R&D facilities, and presence of large number of small scale and large scale home medical devices manufactures. Moreover, the recent changes in the healthcare industry due to ‘Obamacare Act’ will also boost the demand for such equipment, since almost 30 million uninsured Americans will now enjoy medical coverage. Europe accounted for the second largest share of the total home medical equipment market owing to increasing aged population, high prevalence of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, and increasing healthcare investments by the European government. On the other hand, Asia-Pacific home medical equipment market is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to the increasing geriatric population as elder people are prone to many disorders such as orthopedic, cardiovascular and others; rising awareness about the cost effectiveness and convenience offered by these home medical devices; and rising health care expenditures in emerging countries such as India and China, which are projected to be the fastest-growing countries in the Asian home medical equipment market during the forecast period.
