Telemedicine equipment refers to the carts, peripherals and kiosks used in providing telemedicine services. Social distancing and isolation are prescribed to halt the spread of the infection. This has resulted in a reduction of in-person consultations between doctors and patients. Thus, those seeking immediate medical attention have adopted telemedicine to bridge the gap.

Telemedicine also enables doctors to minimize their infection risk while treating patients. Thus, this increased demand has driven the telemedicine market growth. This in turn has spurred the demand for telemedicine equipment as a growing number of physicians seek to leverage this newfound demand for telemedicine. Furthermore, telemedicine companies are reporting a sudden increase in patients seeking tele-healthcare and are building the capability to handle thousands of cases.

This has had a positive impact on the industry growth. There has been a greater adoption of teleconsultations.

It is expected that the COVID-19 epidemic will have a lasting impact on the telemedicine industry. The awareness regarding the benefits and effectiveness of telemedicine as a substitute to in-person consultations is set to drive the market. This will lead to an increase in number of physicians adopting telemedicine and increasing the demand for telemedicine equipment.

Various benefits such as reduced wait time and healthcare costs along with increased adherence to prescriptions will accelerate the demand for telemedicine. In addition, increasing sophistications in telemedicine equipment will raise the product demand in the market.
