The OEM refurbished equipment is good alternative to new products, as these systems undergo complete set of industrial procedures and available with high quality, lower price and manufacturer warranty. Hence, adoption of refurbished products helps hospitals and diagnostics centres to reduce the investments on infrastructure.
The refurbished medical imaging equipment is cost-effective which can be bought for as low as 30% to 70% of the original equipment cost. The cost of these second hand devices, depending on features, age of the system and the condition. By purchasing refurbished equipment, the hospitals can upgrade their imaging capability at the lower cost.

The market growth is primarily attributed to increasing demand for cost-effective medical imaging equipment, increasing adoption of refurbished equipment in private healthcare sector, tax incentives, extended service life of refurbished equipment and growing e commerce. There is an increasing demand for low cost medical imaging equipment by small and mid-level hospitals, diagnostic centres and private medical institutions due to lack of enough financial resources.
Emerging and low income countries are the lucrative target destination for the concerned market. In India, district, municipal and less sophisticated hospitals often go for used medical devices due to budget constraints. Indian hospitals demand continuous service back-up for instruments and the spare parts being sold and international companies need to have liaison offices in the country to promote the sale of these devices.
