Reasons for Doing This Study:
Home medical equipment (HME) is a multibillion-dollar industry.Since The analyst published its last HME study in 2016, the market has continued to evolve as the population ages and a growing number of seniors are financially able to live in their own home instead of a nursing home or other institutional care facility.

Economic trends, such as the rising cost of institutional care, plus a growing receptivity to home health care among physicians and private and public insurers, are also driving the market.

These demographic and attitudinal shifts are being reinforced by technological developments, such as wireless remote monitoring, to meet the demand for treatments stemming from increasing incidences of heart disease and other conditions requiring close patient monitoring.

The increasing prevalence of respiratory diseases, diabetes, sleep disorders, hypertension and a rapidly expanding senior population are pushing the growth of the global home medical equipment market. Also, pandemics like the 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) drive the global demand for home medical equipment.
