The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the operations and financial stability of market players. The anticipated rise in the prevalence of cancer, cardiac disorders, neurological conditions, and gynecological complications is expected to drive product demand in the forecast period. Government-imposed lockdowns during the pandemic also led to disruptions in the supply chain of durable medical equipment (DME). Items such as oxygen equipment, CPAPs and RADs, and nebulizers were particularly affected by these interruptions. Storage challenges for the supply have further complicated the situation for high-risk patients, contributing to an overall increased demand for products in the market.

Older people with lower immunity levels are susceptible to skeletal, cardiac, and neurological issues, necessitating increased demand for long-term care and recovery. This is expected to drive the demand for DME products in the coming years.

Durable medical equipment plays a vital role in supporting long-term post-surgery care, be it at home or in healthcare settings, thereby contributing to the expected durable medical equipment market expansion. Nevertheless, the industry faces potential challenges in the form of stringent regulatory guidelines in developed economies and a shortage of skilled professionals for such equipment, hindering its growth.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

  • Increasing Number of People with Disabilities to Drive Market Expansion.

The expansion of the durable medical equipment (DME) market is influenced by various factors. DME encompasses a broad array of medical devices and equipment designed to assist individuals with disabilities or medical conditions in their daily activities or medical treatment. The increasing number of individuals with disabilities contributes to the growth of the DME market by generating a higher demand for such products. As more people require DME to aid in their daily activities or medical requirements, the market for these products naturally expands to meet the rising demand.

In general, although the increase in the number of individuals with disabilities is not a positive development on its own, it underscores the significance of ongoing investment and innovation in the DME market. This ensures that people with disabilities can access the necessary tools and equipment for a full and independent life, serving as another factor contributing to the growth of durable medical equipment revenue.
