Reprocessed Medical Devices Market 2022 is driven by Rising environmental degradation to reduce medical waste 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) defines reusable medical devices as those “devices that health care providers can reprocess and reuse on multiple patients.” Disinfection, appropriate cleaning, remanufacturing, quality check, disinfecting, packaging and labelling of the devices are the factors emphasized upon in order to put the medical devices to service again. Reprocessing of any medical device is a regulated activity for conducted by third party or hospitals. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) mandates third-party device reprocessors to match the original standards of manufactured single-use devices. Efficacy, life cycle are the elements considered while reprocessing a medical device along with potential risk to the patient.

For regulation of safety of reprocessed devices, FDA developed a three-class categorization system. Class I ‘no-critical’ devices pose a minimum risk of harm; 47% of devices fall in this category. Class II ‘semi critical’ devices that pose some or unknown risk; about 43% of all devices are included in this class. Class III ‘critical’ device pose higher or unknown risk; about 10% of devices fall into this category.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers and Impact Analysis

Recent advancements in the field of medical science and therapeutics, demand for minimally invasive surgical and diagnostic procedures with less involvement in post-surgical complications have pushed the development of innovative solutions and improvised medical devices. Evolution in engineering and material sciences has made these upgradations possible. These advancements are contributing to this reprocessed medical devices market. 

Rising environmental degradation to reduce medical waste to drive the market

The need to reduce degradation of environment and cut down the costs of healthcare services to provide efficient healthcare services at affordable costs in developed as well as developing economies is the prime driving factor for the reprocessed medical devices market. Association of Medical Device Reprocessors (AMDR) stated that hospitals can cut down expenditures and could potentially save up to $ 2 million per year by optimum integration of reprocessed medical devices. Another prime drivers fueling market growth are the rising awareness about environmental concerns and environmental issues owing to the rising amount of medical waste generated from single use of disposable medical devices that are discarded after one use.

Efforts in the past few years by the emerging economies and middle income countries to reduce the expenditure and provide cost-effective and appropriate medical services has helped the market to expand in developing countries as well. Furthermore, rising emphasis of several industry players to produce and process medical devices with compliance to environmental guidelines to reduce the generation of waste is set to boost the market growth for reprocessed medical devices globally.
