Analyst Review

Home medical equipment are devices used for treatment, assistance, and monitoring purposes for people suffering from chronic medical conditions. The rise in geriatric population worldwide has led to high demand for home medical equipment, attributed to the factor that elderly people are highly prone to chronic medical conditions that require continuous monitoring. The medical equipment available in the hospitals cause high financial expenditure, while the use of home medical equipment causes fewer expenses reducing the cost of treatment. 

The rise in prevalence of chronic diseases and increase in healthcare funding that may encourage the R&D activities for home medical equipment are major factors that drive the market growth. In addition, rise in geriatric population and increase in government support for R&D activities fuel the growth further. However, limited expertise for home settings and rise in reimbursement cuts may hamper the market growth.

The usage of home medical equipment is highest in 2019, owing to the increase in funding for the R&D activities in the field of home medical equipment, and high prevalence of chronic diseases. Further, the mobility assist & patient support equipment is expected to be the fastest growing segment throughout the forecast period, owing to rise in health awareness and growth in geriatric population. Such factors will promote the growth of global home medical equipment market during the forecast period.
