Key Market Trends

Patient Examination Devices Led the Market in 2018

Based on the type of product, the market is led by patient examination devices. The growing geriatric population and increasing incidence of hospital-acquired infections are fueling the growth of this product segment. According to the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, each year, about 8,000 Canadians die from hospital-acquired infections and 220,000 others get infected. As per the statistics, the increasing HAIs boost the market in the region.

The patient examination devices are capital equipment that require high initial capital. Consequently, their replacement rate is fairly low and, over the forecast period, the growth rate of this product segment may lower significantly.

Over the forecast period, the fastest-growing sub-segment under the type of product is expected to be disposable hospital supplies. The growth in the number of out-patient visits in Canada is primarily due to the increasing prevalence of acute infections, which is the main propellant for the high growth of disposable hospital supplies.
