Medical Devices Market Trends


Shift towards Homecare Settings is Boosting the Demand for Portable Devices boosting the market growth.


The rising prevalence of chronic conditions and treatment of patients suffering from these diseases is exerting huge pressure on the healthcare systems of many countries. The overall costs of treating a patient in a hospital inpatient setting are significantly higher, and longer hospital stays are associated with a higher economic burden. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the economic burden of treatment of diabetic foot ulcers in the U.S. was approximately USD 13 billion to USD 15 billion each year. Therefore, with the efforts taken by healthcare agencies to shift patients towards home care settings, also market players are actively investing in research and development of advanced and easy-to-use medical equipment such as specialized beds, person-lifting and transferring equipment, and toileting aids for the treatment of chronic disorders. Their efforts have resulted in the introduction of portable and wearable devices that can be easily used by patients at home without the need for professional assistance.
