INTRODUCTION

Home medical equipment (HME) is a multibillion-dollar industry. Since BCC Research published its last HME study in 2012, the market has continued to evolve as the population ages and a growing number of seniors are financially able to live in their own home instead of a nursing home or other institutional care facility. Economic
trends, such as the rising cost of institutional care, plus a growing receptivity to home health care among physicians and private and public insurers, are also driving the market.

These demographic and attitudinal shifts are being reinforced by technological developments, such as wireless remote monitoring, to meet the demand for treatments stemming from increasing incidences of heart disease and other conditions requiring close patient monitoring.

STUDY BACKGROUND

These trends are global, at least in advanced industrial nations, but most published analyses of the HME industry focus on the U.S. market. Since U.S. medical equipment manufacturers are among the largest suppliers to the global health care market, they need to acquire the latest data on international markets for their products, including HME.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

This report is intended to provide an objective, quantitative analysis that addresses the global market for HME in the context of technological change and an evolving market.

Specific objectives:

Identify and segment the main types of commercialized HME.
Analyze the historical and current value of shipments of each of these product segments in specified applications, end-users and geographical markets.
