The increasing incidence of COVID-19 pandemic and the imposed lockdowns across the globe has largely influenced the adoption of telemedicine equipment for teleconsultation bridging the gap between the doctors and patients. The market adoption of telemedicine equipment enables an immediate access for care to patients in remote locations and avoids the risk of picking up the infection at a healthcare facility. Thus, the aforementioned factors will significantly propel the telemedicine equipment industry growth in the projected timeframe.

Telemedicine equipment refers to carts, kiosks, peripherals, and kits that are used for providing telemedicine service. Telemedicine equipment uses telecommunication technology for the remote diagnosis and treatment of the patients. Such equipment allows video or telephonic appointments between the doctor and patients from remote location and minimizes the need of in-person visits.

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected all the sectors and industries operating within. Healthcare sector was also noted to be drastically affected with the surging cases and limited resources to cater to the increased patient inflow. Additionally, apart from patients infected with the virus, long-term care patients as well as patients of chronic illnesses further escalated the burden on healthcare facilities. With restrictions imposed by several national and local public authorities, further limiting the movement of goods and people, remote care alternatives largely gained prominence in the market among the home isolated, coronavirus patients among others with chronic illnesses. Remote care solutions such as telemedicine significantly gained traction with the advent of COVID-19 pandemic and hence, the telemedicine equipment played a major role in providing the telehealth services, allowing teleconsultation between doctors and patients.

Various activities such as education, patient monitoring, medication reminders, prescriptions as well as remote interventions were noted to be possible with the help of telemedicine equipment. The telemedicine equipment market is expected to remain driven with a significant pace owing to improved access to care, low cost and limited crowding in healthcare facilities. Therefore, the COVID-19 pandemic was noted to offer momentum in the market and the same is expected to influence the market expansion over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact

Growing number of COVID-19 cases across the globe and the need to control the spread of the disease is largely contributing to the growth of telemedicine equipment market. The stringent local, national, and international restrictions limited the in-person consultation between the doctors and patients. This has led to an increasing market adoption of telemedicine hardware to bridge the gap and seek immediate medical advice from highly qualified and skilled medical professionals from remote locations. Also, the geriatric population as well as patients in long-term care centers are noted to largely benefit from the adoption of telemedicine equipment. Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to boost the overall market demand.

High cost associated to telemedicine equipment and its maintenance may hamper the market growth

Telemedicine equipment is widely adopted for the delivery of healthcare services by leveraging the existing information & telecommunication infrastructure. Setting up a telemedicine equipment is profitable in terms of generating revenue, but the high capital cost associated with it can impact a large-scale market penetration. Moreover, the costs associated with the maintenance of telemedicine equipment involving the hardware components can act as a challenging factor for the healthcare organizations, predominantly in developing and underdeveloped markets. Further, telemedicine-related applications, software and its period updates can further increase the maintenance cost of telemedicine equipment. Thus, the aforementioned factors may hamper the overall industry expansion.
