Healthcare/Medical Simulation Market by Product & Services, End User - Global Forecast to 2021

Posted on: 28 Sep 16

LONDON, Sept. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global healthcare/medical simulation market is expected to grow at a lucrative CAGR of 15.2% from 2016 to 2021, to reach USD 2.27 billion by 2021 from USD 1.12 billion in 2016. The growth in this market is mainly attributed to increasing focus on training of medical practitioners, rising healthcare costs, growing focus on patient safety, consolidation of the manufacturers, and rising demand for minimally invasive technologies. Several manufacturers in the medical simulation industry are increasingly adopting the multidisciplinary approach in their simulation systems to ensure patient safety, effective surgery outcomes, and reduce healthcare costs. Such a trend is expected to promote greater uptake of technologically advanced medical simulation systems in the global medical industry.

The global healthcare/medical simulation market in this report is segmented by products and services, end users, and regions. In 2015, the medical simulation anatomical models segment accounted for the largest share of the global healthcare/medical simulation market, by product & services. The large share of this segment can primarily be attributed to the rising adoption of simulation based learning in medical/nursing schools, increasing healthcare infrastructure, rising number of minimally adhesive surgeries and innovations in patient simulators. The academic institutes segment accounted for the largest share of healthcare/medical simulation market, by end user. This large share for academic institutes is due to increasing awareness of patient safety, focus on minimizing medical errors, and the rising number of medical school enrollees. In addition, the rising educational grants and the improvement of healthcare infrastructure are expected to support the growth of this segment.

Geographically, North America is the major market for medical simulation, accounting for around half of the global market share, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. However, Asia-Pacific and Latin America possess lucrative growth potential for the medical simulation market during the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to the extensive customer base in these regions due to large base of aging population and rising prevalence of various disorders. Most of the medical simulation products and services in these regions will be driven by developing countries such as India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, and Mexico.

The global healthcare/medical simulation market is fragmented in nature with the presence of many small and big firms. The major players in the medical simulation market include CAE, Inc. (Canada), Laerdal Medical AS (Norway), 3D Systems, Inc. (U.S.), Simulab Corporation (U.S.), Simulaids, Inc. (U.S.), Limbs and Things, Ltd (U.K.), Kyoto Kagaku Co., Ltd (Japan), Mentice AB (Sweden), Surgical Science Sweden AB (Sweden), and Gaumard Scientific Company, Inc. (U.S.).
