The global medical equipment maintenance market was valued at USD 48.9 billion in 2023, which is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% during 2024–2030. The major factors responsible for the growth of the market include the advancements in medical devices, stringent regulatory environment, and rising awareness about preventive maintenance across the globe.
Technological advancements in all kinds of medical devices can be witnessed globally, resulting from the significant investment in research and development (R&D) activities. Owing to this, a number of products that offer more-accurate and faster clinical procedures are being adopted to provide better healthcare to patients. The global medical device industry is highly diversified, with market players manufacturing a variety of devices to diagnose and treat patients suffering from different conditions. No matter how advanced they are, medical devices have a certain life span and require maintenance or replacement, in some cases, after a certain period. Therefore, the growing medical device industry is predicted to drive the demand for equipment maintenance services during the forecast period.
Based on equipment type, the imaging equipment category is expected to dominate the medical equipment maintenance market during the forecast period. The leading position of the category is attributed to the extensive use of imaging equipment for various medical conditions, including cancer and neurological diseases.
Based on service type, the preventive and predictive services category is expected to witness the fastest growth in the medical equipment maintenance market during the forecast period. This would mainly be due to the wide range of services offered by service providers in this category, which generates immense cost savings for public- and private-sector organizations.
In 2023, the global medical equipment maintenance industry generated the highest revenue in the category of OEMs, based on service provider, owing to advanced and faster maintenance services offered by them. Based on the type of OEM, multi-vendor is expected to be the higher-revenue-generating category in the global market till 2030. It is also projected to be the faster-growing category during the forecast period, mainly on account of a wider portfolio of services provided by them as compared to single-vendor OEMs.
Public-sector organizations are the dominant end users in the global market for medical equipment maintenance, both in terms of growth and size. This leading position of the category is due to the fact that public-sector organizations operate a greater number of medical centers than private-sector organizations, thereby generating a higher demand for maintenance services than the private sector. In addition, the increasing number of government hospitals and rising healthcare support provided by governments to patients lead to a higher usage of medical devices by these end users, thereby further supporting the market growth.
North America accounted for the major share in the medical equipment maintenance market in 2023, and it is expected to continue to lead the industry throughout the forecast period. This would be due to the growing geriatric population, increasing number of hospitals, rising disease burden, and increasing adoption of medical imaging systems.
According to an article published by the U.S. Census Bureau, the older North American population is expected to outnumber the younger population by 2030. The region will have 78 million people aged 65 years and above, whereas the population under the age of 18 years will be 76.7 million.
Moreover, the region is expected to witness an increase in the number of hospitals. According to the data published by the American Hospital Association, there were 6,093 registered hospitals in the U.S. in 2022. Thus, with the increase in the number of hospitals, the demand for medical equipment maintenance is also likely to rise in the region owing to the number of medical devices under extensive use for diagnosis and treatment.
Globally, APAC is expected to advance with the highest CAGR in the medical equipment maintenance market during the forecast period. The major factors responsible for this growth would be the increasing number of diagnostic tests performed in the region and rising prevalence of chronic diseases that require medical devices for early diagnosis.
Moreover, the number of hospitals in the region is increasing annually. For instance, the total number of hospitals in China has risen significantly over the last decade, from roughly 18,700 in 2005 to about 27,600 in 2015 and approximately 35,394 in 2020.
End users in the medical equipment maintenance market are becoming more inclined toward entering into multi-vendor contracts, in order to reduce the complexities and additional expenses associated with separate services provided under agreements with the manufacturers of medical equipment. For instance, GE Healthcare, the healthcare division of General Electric Company, offers the Assure Point multi-vendor service for imaging equipment, regardless of the manufacturer. In June 2019, GE Healthcare added more than 6,000 multi-vendor parts and six new functions to its online Service Shop, with the aim to provide greater availability of parts.
