LONDON, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The global medical equipment industry has been growing at a good pace in the last couple of years. The industry is dominated by the disposable equipment sector, accounting for nearly 40% of the market in 2015. The United States is the dominant region of the industry, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific. In Asia Pacific, China leads the industry along with Japan and South Korea. India also accounts for a small portion of the market. Large, international players dominate the global medical equipment industry while there are limited buyers, leading to an increased negotiating power of the industry buyers. Since the supplier companies are large scale, they generally have a control over the price and quality of raw materials. High entry barriers to the industry also make it difficult for new players enter the market. Major multinational players in the global medical equipment industry include Abbott Laboratories, Boston Scientific Corporation, Danaher Corporation, Fresenius Medical Care, GE Healthcare, Hill-Rom Holdings, Johnson & Johnson, Siemens Healthcare Toshiba, Zimmer Biomet and many others. By the end of the forecast period, that is, by the end of 2020, the global medical equipment industry is expected to have a value of over USD 500 billion.
