Home Medical Equipment

Growth home medical equipment demand will be driven by advances in the technological capabilities of products, coupled with ongoing health care cost containment efforts.

US demand to rise 8.2% annually through 2018

US demand for home medical equipment will increase 8.2 percent annually to $12.6 billion in 2018. Advances in the technological capabilities of products, coupled with ongoing health care cost containment efforts, will underlie growth. The introduction of new and improved devices and equipment will expand the number of medical conditions and patients adaptable to home treatment, management, and monitoring. Cost savings will promote the increasing substitution of home health care services for hospital, ambulatory, and nursing home procedures whenever feasible.

Home therapeutic equipment to remain dominant segment

A rising prevalence of chronic conditions, especially respiratory disorders, kidney failure, and cancer, will boost demand for home therapeutic equipment 8.2 percent annually to nearly $7.0 billion in 2018. Portable oxygen concentrators for treating chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) products for managing obstructive sleep apnea, and ventilators and accessories for alleviating severe breathing impairments will account for the fastest growth among home respiratory therapy equipment.

Demand for dialysis equipment will expand at a strong double digit pace, spurred by the increasing availability of portable dialysate delivery machines as well as by upward trends in the incidence of end-stage renal disease. By contrast, the market for IV equipment will rise well below the average pace of home medical equipment due to multiple supplier availability, intensifying pricing pressures, and advances in alternative oral, inhalation, and topical drug therapies. Automated external defibrillators, negative pressure wound therapy products, and muscle and nerve stimulators will see the fastest growth in demand value among other home therapeutic equipment as home health care providers expand their role in preventive medicine, the treatment of major wounds, and overall pain management.

Remote monitoring, telemedicine to lead gains

Among all types of home medical equipment, remote monitoring and real-time systems based on telemedicine technology will generate the fastest revenue growth as physicians, hospitals, and other medical providers are pressured by health insurers to become more accountable for improving patient outcomes and controlling treatment costs. By contrast, demand for conventional patient monitors will expand at a below average pace due to competition from telemedicine devices.

Study coverage

This study analyzes the $8.5 billion US home medical equipment industry. It presents historical demand data for 2003, 2008 and 2013, with forecasts for 2018 and 2023 by product (e.g., home respiratory therapy equipment, home dialysis equipment, home IV equipment, conventional patient monitors, telemedicine patient monitoring systems, mobility assist equipment, medical furniture, bathroom safety equipment).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 30 industry players, including Baxter International, Philips Healthcare and ResMed.
