The need of time is staying up to date with advancements in medical equipment but it can be an expensive prospect. That’s why many health care professionals need medical equipment financing to obtain the tools and machines they need. A medical equipment loan or lease helps those professionals get the equipment they need to bring in new and returning patients, helping them increase cash flow and build their reserves. With the continuous advancement in medical technology, it has become a necessity to opt for the best-in-class medical equipment for excellent healthcare services. However, advanced diagnostic systems are expensive and are difficult for medical practitioners and hospitals to afford through their funds. There arises the need for medical equipment funding with low monthly instalments and flexible loan models.

Covid-19 Scenario Analysis:

The forthcoming of Covid-19 outbreak caused an increase demand to diagnostics, PPE, medical oxygen, ventilators and other life-saving products and expensive medical equipment’s resulting a need in finance for these equipment’s. The COVID-19 pandemic is one of the most serious challenges faced by the financial services industry in nearly a century. The COVID-19 impact on banking is severe – fall in demand, lower incomes, production shutdowns - and will adversely affect the business of banks. The situation is exacerbated by staff shortages, inadequate digital maturity, and pressure on the existing infrastructure as firms scramble to deal with the impact of COVID-19 on financial services.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis:

Equipment financing refers to the practice of taking out a loan to pay for equipment over time. By choosing to finance equipment, borrower will eventually own the asset outright. This works well for organizations with strong credit and for mature technologies or for assets with a long life expectancy. In the medical device market, the typical lease term is between three and five years. At the end of the initial term, borrower has the option to purchase, renew, extend, or return the equipment. As a technologically driven field, leasing medical equipment often proves to be one of the most financially efficient ways to ensure your practice or facility has up to date equipment without tying up significant capital.

On the topic of capital allocation, many organizations utilize a lease to efficiently manage their cash flow. The lower monthly payment and flexible end of term options operationalize the use of the equipment. While most equipment financing is collateralized debt, the loan amount may impact borrower’s available line of credit. Since medical equipment, such as CTs and MRIs, can cost several hundred thousand dollars, the best practice is to work closely with financing partners. Another aspect of financing is the additional interest cost. Debt source and your credit will determine the interest rate which should be factored into the total cost of ownership.

This is the major factor contributing to the demand and magnetizing doctors, physicians, and others toward the equipment financing market. The highly advanced and expensive equipment’s has made hospitals, and diagnostic centres to opt for financing.  

Trade War and Global Healthcare needs rise:
The trade war between China and the U.S. has contributed to increase the cost of certain medical equipment imported from China. These factors have contributed to increased cost of medical equipment, thus compelling the end-users to opt for medical equipment financing for purchasing. Also, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases has fuelled the growth of advanced medical equipment to provide efficient medical care to patients.

The rising number of infectious diseases and limited affordability in developing regions augment the market growth for diagnostic medical equipment financing.
