A rise in healthcare expenditures witnessed globally has led to a shift in preference from hospital care to home care among patients. This rise in healthcare cost, compounded by the geriatric population, is driving the demand for portable medical diagnostic devices including respiratory and anesthesia devices. This has led to a visible shift in the use of respiratory and anesthesia devices from hospital operation set ups to home care healthcare monitoring. Moreover, a rise in respiratory diseases such as asthma, lung cancer, COPDs (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Diseases) and OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) have triggered the growth of this market. There has also been an exponential rise in number of surgical procedures globally and this has led to a significant growth in demand for anesthesia devices and delivery machines. Growing healthcare cost containment pressure in the U.S. and the ongoing Euro crisis have caused a slump in the growth of these markets. Tax reforms coupled with increased regulatory compliance norms are also restraining the growth and profitability of top companies. The tax reform under question has proposed the levy of a 2.3% tax on the annual sale of all the medical devices manufacturers since beginning of this year i.e. 2013.
This has made it imperative for OEMs to tap the potential market in emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil and Russia. There has been significant growth in these emerging economies owing to increase healthcare awareness, rising disposable incomes and a rising middle class coupled with favorable insurance policies in these countries. This in turn is anticipated to make these regions the most attractive markets during the forecast period from 2011 to 2019.
