Major Industry Growth Boosters:
The expanding patient population, rising focus on early diagnosis, growing number of diagnostic imaging procedures, presence of a large number of OEMs, increased agreements & collaborations between service providers and end users are the major factors driving the growth of the medical equipment maintenance market. Moreover, However, the high initial costs and significant maintenance expenditure may hinder the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Expected Revenue Growth:
The medical equipment maintenance market is projected to reach USD 74.2 billion by 2026 from USD 45.2 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period.
Opportunity: Emergence of ISOs
The medical equipment maintenance and services sector was initially dominated by OEMs. However, OEMs typically charge more than third-party vendors, and often take longer for maintenance, resulting in higher associated costs as well as downtime. This situation, especially given the backdrop of continuing austerity measures and the need for cost-curtailment in healthcare systems, has led to the emergence of ISOs dedicated to solely providing maintenance services.
Restraint: High initial cost and significant maintenance expenditure
Maintenance programs for medical devices enable healthcare providers to track and monitor their condition, and thereby ensure efficient utilization and maximum uptime. This is also essential, given the current focus on preventive maintenance and cost pressures, to control total expenditure against a background of austerity measures. Such programs include the deployment of asset management solutions, which use advanced technologies.

However, the deployment of these solutions incurs high initial installation costs and significant maintenance expenditure, while the installation of advanced medical equipment incurs a service contract cost (~12% of the cost of medical equipment) to be paid per year. The service cost thus paid during the lifespan of the equipment is usually more than the cost of the equipment. The high cost associated with the purchase and maintenance of advanced medical equipment is restraining end users from adopting them.
The multi-vendor OEMs segment is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period
Based on service provider, the medical equipment maintenance market has been segmented into multi-vendor OEMs, single-vendor OEMs, ISOs, and in-house maintenance. Significant market growth and a large share of the multi-vendor OEMs segment can primarily be attributed as large number of healthcare providers opt for maintenance services offered by OEMs owing to their service quality, wide geographic presence, strong technical expertise, and easy access to spare parts (resulting in reduced downtime). Also, multi-vendor service contracts eliminate the complexity of dealing with multiple OEMs and external suppliers.
North America is expected to dominate the global medical equipment maintenance market in 2020
North America, comprising the US and Canada, accounted for the largest share of the medical equipment maintenance market in 2020. Increasing number of vendors manufacturing for medical equipment maintenance and a growing number of approvals for advanced, medical devices are the major factors driving market growth in North America. Customers in North America are moving towards outsourcing maintenance services for curbing expense, which is increasing demand for medical equipment maintenance. This trend will have a positive impact on the medical equipment maintenance market.
