Increasing Healthcare Expenditure
The European market has seen tremendous growth in the hospital supplies market and it holds the third largest place in the global market with a share of 22%. Germany has a long history of manufacturing the high-quality medical equipment which covers approximately 30% of the European market. The strong healthcare system, in terms of the infrastructure, hospital beds, hospital supplies, and equipment, etc., helped the German market to account for the highest market share. There is a well-established infrastructure of the hospitals in the European countries which helps in the growth of the European hospital supplies market.
The other major factors are growing in the awareness about HAIs (Hospital Acquired Infections), increasing spending on healthcare in Europe, increasing aging population, and rising occurrences of the communal diseases, among others.
The European market has stringent regulations which lead to the lengthy approval process of the medical devices, and this causes a huge capital investment from key players in the stringent regulatory device approval process. Due to these long regulatory process the cost of the medical devices increases, which ultimately acts as a barrier for the hospital supplies market.
The other factors, like the introduction of the home care services and a drop in private health insurance, are the major factors restraining the growth of the market.
