The medical device manufacturers are developing new and improved equipment based on durability and reliability to improve the quality of life of the patients in need. With growing demand for home healthcare, the adoption of home care equipment is also increasing. Several new organizations are established that are launching and scaling advanced home care models to move primary, acute, and palliative care to the home. There are numerous dynamics that are driving patient’s preference for healthcare settings specifically towards home which in-turn is enhancing the adoption of durable medical equipment across various regions.


The primary factor driving the growth of durable medical equipment market in the U.S. is growing aging population and increasing demand for assisted care in a comfortable environment. Currently, there are over 40 million people in the U.S. alone aged 65 years & above and this number is anticipated to double by 2050. Rapidly growing geriatric population, which forms the key target population for DME, is anticipated to bolster the growth of the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, growing technological advancements, and increasing government initiatives to improve healthcare are some other factors fueling the growth of this market. The rising geriatric population is expected to increase susceptibility toward chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, and other lifestyle disorders. With an ever-increasing prevalence of diseases and baby boomer population, healthcare expenditure levels are expected to continue to grow during the forecast period. The growth of home healthcare as a cost-effective alternative over hospital stay is expected to serve this market as a key driver over the forecast period.

Though many factors are driving the market growth, there are several issues that have a negative impact on the market. Failure to meet the desired performance is another vital reason why healthcare professionals hesitate from using DME, especially personal mobility devices. At times, while carrying obese patients, these equipment tend to break, which usually happens due to wear and tear. In such situations, the patient is at greater risk and prone to severe accidents and injuries. Also, DME are primarily used in the home healthcare settings and the fact that remuneration for home health & personal aides are significantly lower than other personal care & service workers and well below the median for all occupations discourages individuals to take up home health aide as a profession, which is expected to restrain market growth.  


The U.S. DME market is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period. Based on several government initiatives and insurance coverage, it is easy for the patients to use these equipment at a low cost. Both Medicare and Medicaid offer coverage for DME that are prescribed by the doctor for home use. Most DME can be purchased without prescription, however, some devices such as oxygen equipment require prescription. In addition, prescription becomes essential in case of reimbursement or the coverage.


Furthermore, numerous companies are launching technologically advanced systems to improve the usage and sales of DME. For instance, in August 2018 Somnoware, launched its enhanced durable medical equipment DME ordering capability for enterprise healthcare systems. Also, in May 2019 Breg, Inc., launched Breg Vision 7.0, in Apple's app store, the next generation of its paperless workflow management system for orthopedic providers, to automates and optimizes in-house durable medical equipment (DME) programs. Such activities not only improves the existing technologies but also helps smoothen the purchase and usage process for the patients.


The key players in the market include Invacare Corporation, Sunrise Medical, ArjoHuntleigh, Hill Rom, Inc, Stryker Corporation, Medline Industries Inc., Drive Medical, GF Health Products Inc., and Carex Health Brands, Inc. among others.
