Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: One of the key trends for market growth will be increase in M&A. Many companies are highly focused on M&A to increase their customer base, product portfolio, and services and solutions by scaling manufacturing of products. For instance, Philips acquired Volcano in 2015. The increase in value generated, cost efficiency, and market share are the prominent results of M&A. The expansion of product of the parent company and entry of a company into the new geographical area would be easy either by merger or acquisition of a local manufacturer. The customer base will increase as the product portfolio widens with M&A. In order to maintain strong bonding with customers, manufacturers have to focus on offering customer-oriented services and solutions.”

According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be rise in privatization in healthcare sector. Privatization is usually profit driven, and the management has autonomous control over the quality and pricing of the procedures performed. Along with privatization, the demand for high standards of treatment has increased leading to the procurement of advanced devices for patient treatment was observed. Many healthcare institutions like hospitals and diagnostic centers have purchased high-cost equipment at a relatively lower price in the form of refurbished devices. Most of them included diagnostic equipment, few to quote such as X-ray, CT, and MRI machines. The refurbished devices enabled these healthcare institutions to equip fully with various costly devices. The equipping of devices by those institutions move ahead of their competitors by providing a wide range of services to patients at low cost.

Further, the report states that availability of remanufactured devices will be a challenge for the market. A refurbished product requires only the replacement of worn-out parts and cleaning of the medical devices. The remanufacturing of medical devices is an expensive procedure, but it is more precise and works toward achieving a higher standard compared to refurbishing of medical devices. Though the installation costs for remanufactured medical equipment increases the capital investment, it also enhances the affordability of the latest technology. The demand from hospitals and ASCs for remanufactured devices has created opportunities for manufacturers in Asia to provide these devices at low cost. Eventually, they will provide a tough competition to refurbished devices.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
