India’s medical imaging equipment market has been on a constant rise since a long time. Large population size, increasing spending capacity of the population, expanding network of the private hospital chains and growing penetration of the private standalone diagnostic services are the major factors that have influenced the increase in establishments of healthcare units including hospitals and diagnostic centers.

Be it any region, the Diagnostic and Imaging facilities have a direct co-relation with growth in number of hospitals and clinics. Not only in metros and big cities, but also in smaller cities and towns the number of new hospitals and clinics are on increasing. Rise in the number of patients has created a need for low cost yet advanced imaging equipments in the market. Due to the high cost of new medical equipments, it is not always possible to provide have the latest medical facilities. Refurbished medical equipments have solved this problem to a large extend. Being able to buy top branded medical equipments at an affordable price is the basis for refurbished medical equipment market in India.

An alternate perspective for the OEMs could be not to see refurbished systems as “cannibalizing” the market for new systems but rather as an additional market at lower price points. The refurbished medical equipment market gives the equipment a longer revenue-generating lifespan while creating a steady market for state-of-the-art equipment.

The refurbished medical equipments not only help in providing increased access to healthcare facilities in market and handling cost pressures but also generate economic benefits from extending the lifecycle value of manufactured equipment and creating new jobs, growth and investment in the country.

When we talk of an Imaging Center, MRI is the largest equipment category in terms of sales revenue. A refurbished MRI has the ability to offer high speed scanning combined with high image quality and that too at an effective cost. Refurbishment is defined as “a systematic process that ensures safety and effectiveness of the medical equipment without significantly changing the equipment’s or system’s performance, safety specifications and/or changing intended use as in its original registration” .

Although a cost effective refurbished MRI may seem as an ideal opportunity to increase the medical facilities but a strategic and cautious planning is required to choose the right vendor for it. A considerable amount of time should be spent with a vendor understanding the refurbished process and evaluating the options.
