Growing interest in research and development to develop innovative products with technological advancements is fostering the rehabilitation equipment market revenue. In addition, the growing need for efficient and accurate rehabilitation equipment is anticipated to witness robust growth over the coming years. Furthermore, favorable reforms in healthcare sector, promising insurance and reimbursement policies in developed countries are few of the major factors driving the industry expansion.

The emergence of COVID-19 is an unprecedented public health concern and has led to an increased number of hospitalizations. The outbreak of coronavirus pandemic has infected more than 64 million people across the globe as of December 2020. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), a large proportion of population will require rehabilitative interventions during and after the hospitalization. Patients suffering from COVID-19 are at high risk of long-term impairment and disability and will require rehabilitation in all phases of the disease. Intensive efforts are being made by various market players to meet the demand for rehabilitation equipment.

Increasing incidences of musculoskeletal disorders will boost the market revenue

Growing incidences of musculoskeletal disorders will stimulate the rehabilitation equipment market growth. Musculoskeletal conditions are prevalent, and their impact is pervasive. They are the most common cause of severe long-term physical disability and pain affecting millions of people around the world. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), between 20% to 30% of people across the globe are currently living with a painful musculoskeletal condition. As a result, large number of people across the world are being hospitalized in the musculoskeletal rehabilitation centers that is leading to the increased demand for equipment in the rehabilitation centers.

Patients suffering from sports injuries, tumours, osteoporosis, back pain, amputation, repetitive stress injuries including tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome, among others prefer to be treated in musculoskeletal rehabilitation centers. Therefore, occupational, and vocational rehabilitation therapy is increasingly available to such patients. Several therapeutic devices are widely used in rehabilitation centers to achieve the highest level of function and independence among patients. Low level laser therapy (LLLT) is increasingly adopted by some physiotherapists to treat several musculoskeletal conditions. The applications of the LLLT such as reduction of inflammation, pain relief, and accelerated tissue regeneration are significant for physiotherapy, and prove to be useful in enhancing other treatments as therapeutic exercise.

Increasing technological advancements will fuel the rehabilitation equipment market expansion

Emergence of latest technology has led to the development of advanced medical equipment such as anti-gravity treadmills and robotics to aid patients with mobility. Rehabilitation robots support therapists with exercises that improve recovery of patients with neurological impairments, stroke, or other traumatic brain injuries. Robots help in increasing the number of repetitions performed by patients up to 10 times the number of repetitions in a typical one-hour session. These advancements support powering hip and knee motion that allows patients to move easily without assistance and promote recovery.

In addition, anti-gravity robotic treadmills allow to regain or improve the ability of patients with neurological conditions to move or walk. Anti-gravity robotic treadmill equipment enables patients to exercise and work on their gait, while reducing pain and pressure on joints and bones. Implementation of advanced technology in rehabilitation services have been very helpful for patients across the world. Advancements in robotics and software assists therapy professionals to reach more patients, offer more precise diagnoses, and upsurge clinical proficiencies.

Growing prevalence of neurological disorders will stimulate the market growth

Neurological rehabilitation equipment market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 14.2% through 2026 led by the growing incidences of neurological disorders, robotic rehabilitation and rising geriatric population suffering from neurocognitive disorders. Patients suffering from neurological disorders such as stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and brain surgeries are in frequent need of neurorehabilitation. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of patients suffering from neurological disorders will increase from 95 million in 2015 to approximately 108 million by 2030.

Geriatric patient population is prone to suffer from vision and hearing impairment and prefer undergoing rehabilitation therapy. Therefore, with increasing geriatric population, the demand for the market is significantly increasing. Moreover, the rising awareness pertaining to the neurorehabilitation services among the people is contributing to the increasing adoption of neurorehabilitation equipment. Furthermore, technological advancements such as wearable technology, nanotechnology and robotics is augmenting the demand for neurological rehabilitation equipment.

Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation equipment segment value was more than USD 2.5 billion in 2019 owing to increasing need of rehabilitation therapy among the people suffering from cardiopulmonary disorders. Shortness of breath associated with cardiorespiratory abnormalities limits exercise capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and with congestive heart failure (CHF). Thus, these patients are in constant need of cardiopulmonary resuscitation as a part of rehabilitation therapy.

Additionally, patients suffering from cardiovascular disorders and high blood pressure require continuous monitoring. Thus, these patients are recommended to undergo cardiopulmonary rehabilitation therapy, enhancing the demand for rehabilitation equipment. Moreover, the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) provides certified cardiopulmonary rehabilitation services resulting in increased demand for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation equipment.

Increasing healthcare expenditure in the North American region
