Europe Medical Devices Market- Overview

A medical device is an instrument or equipment that is used to diagnose, treat, and cure various diseases and disorders. These devices focus on physical and mechanical actions and do not have anything to do with chemical effects or the internal body. CT scanners, x-ray machines, infusion pumps, medical lasers are some of the most commonly used medical devices. The medical devices are classified into three types based on their application and severity of the medical condition, i.e., Class I, Class II and Class III, with low risk, moderate risk and high risk, respectively. Europe is a key hub for the global medical device industry. Nevertheless, most European nations export their products to foreign markets and rely on imports to serve the home healthcare industry.

Europe Medical Devices Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Prevalence of Medical Conditions 

Europe has a sizable working-class population in its cities. The prevalence of numerous medical disorders among the European population is increasing every day as a result of changing lifestyles. Problems like metabolic diseases, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, overweight, joint and skeleton problems, and other chronic diseases are getting prominent, especially in the younger population. This has been a leading cause for the growth of the medical devices market in Europe. Furthermore, the rising frequency of serious diseases like cancer, SARS, COPD (Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), etc., are expected to pull the market demand in the forecast period.

Innovation and Technological Advancements

The adoption of technologically advanced products in the medical business has increased dramatically over the last decade, and demand is likely to surge further in the coming years. The use of technology in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of medical diseases yields more accurate and reliable results. That is why the European market for medical equipment is growing at such a rapid pace. Furthermore, European countries are investing heavily in the adoption of medical equipment in order to provide the best services possible while avoiding any form of casualties with the patient's life. This will further contribute to the expansion of the medical device market over the forecast period.

Restraints

High Cost of Medical Devices

Even though the Europe medical devices market is very promising, both in terms of production and consumption of medical devices, the market is hindered by the high prices of such devices. The purchasing power of individuals plummeted dramatically after more than a year of the Covid-19 crisis since most people lost their employment or taken a pay cut. As a result, they discontinued the use of medical devices as they could not afford them. This has had a very serious impact on the overall European medical devices market.

Impact of Covid-19 on Europe Medical Devices Market

Although the healthcare industry thrived during the Covid-19 scenario, the European medical device market had to struggle in the face of the pandemic. Hospitals are the leading end-users for medical devices. However, as the healthcare facilities are one of the most exposed areas for transmission of the COVID-19 virus, the patients avoided visiting hospitals and ended up postponing their treatment. As a result, the demand for medical devices declined sharply. Furthermore, supply chains were completely halted to prevent the virus from spreading, causing imports and exports to be hampered. As a result, European medical device manufacturers suffered massive losses.

Europe Medical Devices Market - By Device Type

Based on device type, the Europe medical device market is segmented into respiratory care devices, diagnostic imaging systems, orthopedic devices, ventilators, anesthesia monitoring devices, endoscopy devices, cardiac monitoring & cardiac rhythm management devices, interventional cardiology devices, diabetes care devices, ophthalmic devices, respiratory care devices, and dialysis devices. Among these, anesthetic monitoring devices are in high demand in Europe due to an increase in surgical procedures. The market is expected to grow further during the forecast period due to the increased usage of targeted anesthetic to ensure patient safety and minimal pain.

Europe Medical Devices Market - By End-User

Based on end-user, the medical device market is grouped into hospitals, clinics, and home-care. The hospital segment holds the largest market share owing to developed public healthcare infrastructural development as well as a large percentage of the population approaching hospitals for receiving medical treatment. However, with the rising self-diagnosis trend in many European countries, the demand for medical devices is expected to surge in the home-care market as well. The home-care segment is especially estimated to grow as patients are reluctant to visit healthcare facilities in the light of covid-19 unless it’s a health emergency.
