World Medical Equipment Market to Reach USD 500 Bln by 2020, States Aruvian’s R’search in Discounted Report Available at

24 May 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – The world medical equipment sector has been posting healthy growth in the past 2 years. The disposable equipment sector takes the lead, with a share of close to 40% of the total market as of 2015. The USA dominates the industry, with Europe and APAC following after. In APAC, China is a leader in tandem with Japan and South Korea. India also captures a small slice of the medical equipment pie. 

Large-sized, multinational players take the lead in the worldwide medical equipment industry whilst there are a limited number of buyers, resulting in an enhanced bargaining power of the buyers. Since the suppliers are large scale, they typically hold control over the quality and cost of raw materials. Moreover, high barriers to entry make it difficult for new market entrants. 

Boston Scientific Corporation, Abbott Laboratories, Danaher Corporation, Fresenius Medical Care, Zimmer Biomet, Hill-Rom Holdings, Johnson & Johnson, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare Toshiba, amid others, are the top multinational players active in the field.

The medical equipment sector is expected to reach a value of over USD 500 billion by 2020.
