Hence, it is projected that factors like affordability and the rising number of healthcare service providers will fuel market expansion throughout the projection period. Therefore, such medical condition has enhanced the Refurbished Medical Devices market CAGR across the globe in the recent years.


However, Refurbishing entails thorough cleaning and replacing any broken components is another factor driving the growth of the Refurbished Medical Devices market revenue.


Refurbished Medical Devices Market Segment Insights


Refurbished Medical Devices Diagnostic Devices Insights


The market segments of Refurbished Medical Devices, based on Diagnostic Devices, includes X-Ray Machines, CT Scanners, Ultrasound Systems, MRI Machines, ECG Systems, and Patient Monitors. The X-Ray Machines segment held the majority share in 2022, contributing to around ~33% of the Refurbished Medical Devices market revenue. One of the leading causes of the rising number of diagnostic imaging tests performed globally is the increasing burden of chronic diseases. For example, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that roughly 65 million people worldwide have the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Likewise, the CDC estimates that 18.2 million Americans aged 20 and older will have coronary artery disease in 2021. Many doctors primarily demand chest x-rays of patients to diagnose heart issues. As a result, the prevalence of these disorders is rising, increasing the need for effective and affordable diagnostic equipment like x-ray systems.


September 2021: Except for the United States and China, Shimadzu Corporation debuted the mobile X-ray system MobileArt Evolution MX8 Version in Japan. Where patients have limited mobility, a portable x-ray machine is used.


Refurbished Medical Devices Therapeutic Devices Insights


The Refurbished Medical Devices market segmentation have been divided into heart-lung machines, coagulation analyzers, infant incubators and warmers, defibrillators, and infusion pumps. The Heart-Lung Machines segment dominated the market in 2022 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Globally, the number of open heart operations, heart transplants, and lung operations has significantly increased in recent years. This is primarily due to several environmental and lifestyle modifications that have increased the frequency of cardiovascular illnesses and the occurrence of organ failure. In addition, governments in several developing countries are working to enhance patient access to healthcare, increasing the demand for artificial heart-lung machines. Also, industry participants are spending money on R&D projects to update the current oxygenator pumps on the market.
