Drivers: Global Medical Equipment Maintenance Market

The major factors contributing to the growth of the market includes factors such as rising focus on preventive medical equipment maintenance, increasing preference for purchase of refurbished medical equipment, rising investments of key companies to build healthcare infrastructure, technological advancements for complex equipment maintenance, increasing number of public-private partnerships.


Medical equipment maintenance consists of preventive, predictive, corrective, operational and other types of maintenance. Preventative maintenance has many advantages over other maintenance as it is performed on regular basis to prevent the equipment from failure. Preventive maintenance is performed all through when the equipment is on functioning to prevent it from unexpected interruption. The preventive maintenance extends the lifecycle of equipment and boosts efficiency for running more efficiently. It lowers the power expenses, improves the performance of assets by increasing uptime and it is helpful to develop customer service.

Preventative maintenance has the advantage of planning over less complex strategies. Unplanned reactive maintenance includes lost production, higher costs for parts and shipping. Planned maintenance helps to reduce the maintenance cost and to save the production downtime equipment would shut down for safety measures and essential parts or supplies are collected to minimize repair time. This maintenance does not require condition-based monitoring, which monitors the current state of the equipment, helps to reduce the requirement and cost to conduct and interpret condition monitoring data.

Below are some companies which provide preventative maintenance services:

  • Horizon CSA, LLC, medical equipment maintenance, repair and management services provider, offers preventative maintenance throughout hospitals and ancillary healthcare facilities for diagnostic imaging equipment to the simplest of medical devices.
  • BiomedRx Inc., a healthcare technology solutions company provides medical equipment maintenance services to healthcare providers and medical device manufacturers, manufacturers and government and civilian healthcare sectors.
  • GE Healthcare, a transformational medical technologies and services provider offers the preventive maintenance service for the medical equipment.
