The global healthcare equipment leasing market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.55% during 2022-2027.


The demand in the market is mainly driven by rising chronic diseases with a growing patient population, increased number of diagnostic and surgical procedures, high cost of healthcare equipment, rapid advancements in healthcare, an increasing number of hospitals & diagnostic centers, and others. However, the growing demand for refurbished equipment, the risk of healthcare equipment obsolescence, and the availability of multiple procuring options might hinder the growth of the global market.

Healthcare equipment leasing involves making an agreement by the lessee with the lessor wherein the lessor allows the lessee to utilize the equipment for a particular period in exchange for lease rentals. Leasing companies can also provide finance for expensive healthcare equipment such as X-ray machines, MRI machines, and ventilators without investing huge capital. The equipment obtained can be returned to the lessor or purchased at the prevailing market price at the end of the lease tenure. Purchasing healthcare equipment can be costly, so leasing will help medical centers procure healthcare equipment through leasing and acquiring up-to-date equipment. The significant benefits of the healthcare equipment leasing market include low initial costs, liberty to upgrade, saving time and money, affordable and quality services, flexible terms, tax benefits, and reduced maintenance and repair costs.


Growing Number of Medical Imaging and Surgical Procedures in Healthcare Facilities

• The rising number of medical imaging procedures is drastically increasing the demand for leasing medical imaging equipment by the providers. Ultrasound is likely to be the most used medical imaging procedure, with around 180 million procedures. X-rays are also performed frequently, with over one billion dental X-rays alone being performed yearly. With the growing number of diagnostic facilities, such as in the U.S., there are 10,116 diagnostic imaging centers and more than 7,000 standalone imaging centers as of 2022, which is growing the need for leasing imaging equipment boosting the healthcare equipment leasing market growth. Also, globally, a staggering 310 million major surgeries are performed each year, of which around 40 to 50 million occur in the U.S. and 20 million in Europe. Most performed surgeries include that related to cardiovascular disorders, cataracts, pregnancies, cancers, and others. Thus, the need for surgical instruments to perform the surgeries is increasing and contributing to the increasing demand for leasing.

Need for High Capital and Associated Procurement Costs with Healthcare equipment.

• According to Modern Healthcare, healthcare equipment and supplies accounted for the most significant spike in healthcare expenditure. Hospitals are spending USD 93 billion every year on the lifecycle costs of healthcare equipment. After passing the Affordable Care Act in the last decade, much attention has been given to reducing healthcare costs while improving the overall quality of care. However, with the growing cost of technologically advanced healthcare equipment, equipment costs are increasing rapidly. Also, healthcare facilities that lack adequate funds and require healthcare equipment to manage the high volume of incoming patients are likely to lease the equipment needed contributing to the healthcare equipment leasing market.

Technological Advancements of Healthcare Equipment in the Healthcare Industry

• Five key areas of technology revolutionizing healthcare are artificial intelligence, wearables, virtual reality & augmented reality, the internet of things, and 3D printing. The demand for such equipment is increasing, with significant technological advancements incorporated into healthcare equipment. However, these come with a high burden of expenses. Hence, the healthcare equipment leasing market is helping to ensure cost-effective access to the latest and best healthcare technologies without a significant upfront investment. With the growing adoption of leasing, advanced healthcare technology can spread rapidly and benefit patient quality care.

Low- And Middle-Income Countries Witnessing the Ease of Leasing Healthcare Equipment

• LMICs account for about 90% of the global burden of diseases, while only 12% of global spending is on health. Moreover, many total health spending in developing countries is made from the pocket. In such countries, access to quality-assured healthcare equipment became challenging, resulting in inaccurate or delayed diagnosis and ineffective treatment, impacting patient safety. Therefore, healthcare facilities highly focus on procuring equipment from imports or in-house manufacturing companies. With a significant number of imports happening, LMICs have the required healthcare equipment. However, due to the cost restraint, the healthcare centers rely on leasing companies to obtain the necessary equipment, which is a major growth driver for the healthcare equipment leasing market.
