In addition, companies are strategizing on offering discounts in order to cater to growing demand for cost-effective medical equipment.

Increasing demand for refurbished medical equipment is relatively high from private hospitals, owing to lower budgets than that of government-run or funded medical facilities. Cost of personalized treatment in private hospitals is relatively higher than government or trust-run hospitals. In order to operate within budget and increase patient footfall by offering a wider range of diagnostics and treatments, many private hospitals adopt cost-effective solutions such as refurbished medical equipment.

Increasing cost of new diagnostic imaging devices and equipment such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), nuclear imaging, and positron emission tomography (PET) scans along with financial constraints to buy new medical equipment in healthcare facilities are other major factors expected to drive growth of the global refurbished medical equipment market over the forecast period.
