The North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by independent service organizations (ISOs) accounted for $1,468.8 million revenue in 2019, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.9% during the forecast period (2021–2030). The major factors responsible for the market growth include advancements in the medical device industry, rise in awareness on preventive medical equipment maintenance, and stringent regulatory environment.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs has been negatively impacted. This is mainly due to the strict regulations laid by governments in the region, such as lockdowns and social distancing policies, to save lives. This reduces the demand for the services from end users, such as nursing homes and other healthcare settings, due to the fact that the end users avoided performing any face-to-face interactions typically conducted by sales representatives, medical science liaisons, and other field-based employees of pharmaceutical and medical device companies.
Based on device/equipment type, the patient monitoring and electromedical category is expected to witness the fastest growth in the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs, during the forecast period. This can be majorly attributed to the high prevalence of chronic diseases including respiratory and cardiac diseases, increasing number of aging population, and rising number of intensive care unit (ICU) beds, in the region.
On the basis of automation, the automated devices category held larger share in the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs, in 2019, and is expected to maintain the same trend in upcoming years. This can be ascribed to the continuous technological advancements in automation solutions, increasing government financial support for medical automation, and rising need for reproducibility and accuracy of these devices.
Based on portability, the floor-based category is expected to dominate the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs in foreseeable future. This can be attributed to the fact that floor-based systems are large in size and comprise several components, which need to be regularly checked and repaired to maintain their efficiency and accuracy.
On the basis of end user, the hospitals category held the largest share in the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs, in 2019. This is majorly due to the presence of a large number of publicly-owned healthcare providers in the region.
The U.S. accounted for larger share in the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs, in 2019, and the country is expected to maintain the same trend in coming years. This is mainly on account of the presence of a large number of hospitals and established key players and rise in technological advancements with respect to diagnostic tests, in the nation.
In the current scenario, end users in the North American market for medical device and equipment maintenance and calibration services by ISOs are becoming more inclined toward entering into comprehensive contracts offered by various ISOs, in order to reduce the complexities and additional expenses associated with separate services provided under agreements with manufacturers of medical equipment. For instance, Crothall Healthcare offers its preventive and corrective maintenance for all medical equipment and devices used in hospitals, under its healthcare technology solutions (HTS) category. Through the contract, the company offers centralized services and eliminates task redundancy.
Medical devices can be used in number of applications, not being specific to just one area. For example, imaging systems, including ultrasound systems, endoscopes, and X-ray systems, are used in multiple clinical applications. Thus, in order to increase their lifespan, these systems require regular and proper maintenance. Moreover, these services also help in preventing infections caused by the use of medical devices during surgeries. Thus, the emphasis on cleanliness in healthcare facilities is increasing, with many prestigious organizations issuing guidance for improving cleanliness and preventing infections. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) has issued guidelines for hospital hygiene, which emphasize equipment maintenance for infection control.
The presence of a stringent regulatory framework makes medical equipment maintenance a compulsory requirement for end users in North America. For instance, the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regulations and other accreditation requirements (such as those of The Joint Commission [TJC], Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program [HFAP], and Det Norske Veritas [DNV]), as well as guidelines by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA), necessitate compliance with respect to equipment maintenance among hospitals.
