Published Date : May 2021 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Healthcare

The global Reprocessed Medical Devices market size is expected to be worth around US$ 15.0 billion by 2030, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Reprocessed Medical Devices market size was valued at US$ 11.64  billion in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 30.6 % during forecast period 2021 to 2030.

Growth Factors

 The increasing generation of medical waste coupled with the lack of centralized support for waste disposal in the healthcare industry is expected to drive the demand for reprocessed market. Additionally, the long-term cost-efficiency associated with these devices as compared to that of the original device is the high impact rendering driver of the industry. 

According to the Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR),hospitals witness up to 50% cost saving on every purchase of the reprocessed medical device, thereby spending only a limited amount, on waste disposal. 

Consequentially, reprocessing has also facilitated reduction in device cost by the original equipment manufacturer in a vain to compete with the third-party reprocessors, thus exerting a positive cumulative effect on the industry growth. 

Furthermore, the continuous deterioration of environmental conditions as a consequence of increasing landfills is anticipated to induce the demand for reprocessed medical devices. Reprocessing allows hospitals to divert over 8,000 pounds of Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) from landfills every year, thereby propelling the demand for the reprocessed medical devices market. 

The rising initiatives by organizations, such as Association of periOperative Registered Nurses, American Nursing Association, and Practice Greenhealth, in collaboration with governmental and intergovernmental agencies, pertinent to increasing awareness with respect to medical device reprocessing is further expected to provide lucrative growth platform to this industry in near future. 

Report Highlights

The cardiovascular segment held the largest share of 56.1% of the total market owing to extensive utilization of these products in cardiovascular surgeries and diagnostics. These devices include blood pressure cuffs, cardiac positioning and stabilization devices, blood pressure monitoring, electrophysiology cables, and diagnostic electrophysiology catheters.

Rising number of cardiovascular surgeries & treatments are bolstering the need for cost-efficient alternatives consequentially driving the demand for the segment. Furthermore, the advent of low-cost and single-use cardiovascular reprocessed devices have resulted in increased adoption thereby contributing to the overall segment growth.

Moreover, increasing FDA approvals for reprocessed cardiovascular products are contributing towards the substantial share of the segment. This segment is also anticipated to grow lucratively at a CAGR of 20.9% as a consequence of constant efforts of industry players towards the promotion of reprocessing techniques through strategic alliances and frequent FDA approvals. Owing to the aforementioned factors the demand for these products is anticipated to increase in the future.

The laparoscopy segment accounted for the second-largest share of the industry on the basis of products. The high amount of waste generation as a consequence of the usage of disposable devices is driving the demand for reprocessed laparoscopic devices. Growing demand for minimally invasive techniques is expected to present opportunities for more reprocessing approvals pertaining to laparoscopy thereby contributing to the growth of this segment. Moreover, the presence of organizations such as ECRI Institute which provide healthcare risk control services to control the risk factors associated with these devices is expected to bolster the segment demand over the coming years.

The hospital segment held the largest share of the industry owing to increasing pressure to control waste generation & cost reduction. Moreover, the presence of in-house reprocessing units and rising number of collaborations with third-party reprocessors are responsible to augment the growth during the future period and presenting the industry with lucrative opportunities.

The rising number of third-party reprocessing organizations has triggered the incorporation of reprocessed products resulting in the conservation of in-house resources and the consequent cost reduction. According to PubMed, the National Institutes of Health, in the U.S. in 2007, about 45% of hospitals entered into a collaborative agreement with third-party reprocessing organizations and reached 70% in 2008.

The rising inclination towards reprocessed products has a positive cumulative effect on the overall business owing to the highly competitive environment between Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and third-party processors. Consequentially, OEMs lower the prices, therefore reducing the overall cost of healthcare. In addition, modern infrastructural support and the availability of skilled healthcare professionals & technicians are responsible for facilitating market development over the coming years.

Home healthcare is predicted to grow at a moderate rate over the forecast period as a consequence of the rising need for low-cost home equipment. Refurbished home medical equipment includes , patient monitoring systems, and external support devices which enhance the patient mobility profile at home. Furthermore, the increasing scope for incorporation of reprocessed products in-home healthcare as a consequence of a lesser number of home medical device suppliers is presumed to trigger the growth prospects.

North America accounted for the largest regional market at USD 540.9 million. Rising need to curtail the waste generation and potential damage to the environment owing to the increasing waste landfills over this region is a major driver in this region. Increasing demand to curb healthcare expenditure coupled with the shortage of establishments for proper waste disposal is driving the growth of this region

In addition, favorable government initiatives to promote awareness pertaining to reprocessing of equipment are expected to provide this market with significant growth opportunities. Moreover, the presence of stringent regulatory framework in order to ensure patient safety is expected to widen the base for high quality reprocessed devices, therefore generating potential future growth prospects.

It is followed by Europe in terms of revenue share owing to the high awareness levels and initiatives to curb the overall healthcare expenditure over this region. The presence of organizations such as the European Association for Medical Device Reprocessing (EAMDR), which promotes awareness through collaborating with research institutes, companies, and associations to strengthen reprocessing of products is responsible for boosting the reprocessed medical devices market growth.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at a lucrative rate due to the presence of emerging economies, which focus on operating within a controlled budget. This is expected to be a significant growth factor of the industry during the future period. Moreover, rising investment in healthcare infrastructure by global market players is expected to provide a potential growth platform to the industry in Asia Pacific.
