Refurbished Medical Devices Market Size (2023 - 2030)

The global refurbished medical devices market size was worth USD 12.5 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 21.6 billion with a CAGR of 12.2% during the forecast period 2023 - 2030. 

Refurbished medical devices are those that are reconstructed or renovated devices instead of replacing them with new devices. Refurbishment deals with damaged, repair, replacing worn parts, and installing software/hardware updates without changing the original device.

The recent novel coronavirus (COVID-19) originated in Wuhan, China. The World Health Organization announced an emergency public health issue. Due to the pandemic, nations announced a lockdown to prevent virus spread. The majority of the population stopped visiting hospitals to prevent attacks from viruses. During the COVID-19 period, the demand for refurbished medical devices is prominently increasing like mechanical ventilators. The healthcare industry is dealing with huge disturbances in the supply chain which has adversely affected the refurbished medical devices market. The market growth is slowed down temporarily due to COVID-19 during the forecast period. 

Market Drivers

Factors driving the refurbished medical devices market are rising hospital monetary cuts, growing demand for budget-intensive diagnostic imaging equipment, and rising prominence for eco-friendly products. The increasing number of hospitals and diagnostic centers, growing medical tourism demand, and the private health institutions invest huge capital boosting the refurbished medical devices market globally. Many of the hospitals choose refurbished medical devices as they need small monetary investments. 

In low and middle-income countries, the demand for refurbished medical devices is increasing along with poor health infrastructure and restricted access to healthcare resources escalate the market growth. The ease of affordability also stimulates the market. The growing occurrences of chronic diseases together with the increasing elderly population, and the wide adoption of refurbished equipment by private hospitals in developing and developed countries. Combining devices with IoT and tremendous efforts initiated by both public and private sectors highly try their best to in providing superior healthcare services available to all boosting refurbished medical devices market growth. 

Market Restrains

However, strict rules for the import and use of refurbished medical devices in some countries and a dearth of policies for using and sales of refurbished devices restrain the market growth during the forecast period. Also, the inflow of less price medical devices is increasing, and not being aware of the quality of refurbished medical devices diminishing the market.
