Medical Equipment Rental and Leasing: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) March 10, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – The need for medical and healthcare institutions to purchase new and advanced medical equipment, or upgrade existing equipment in a cost-effective manner, is driving the global medical equipment rental and leasing market. The global healthcare industry is expanding rapidly, with a large number of hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, diagnostic centers, and blood banks mushrooming across the world. The developing healthcare system presents a strong business case for the sales of new medical equipment. Additionally, the increase in the number of patients seeking diagnostics and therapeutic help is subjecting medical devices and instruments to increased wear and tear, thus shortening the replacement cycle. Moreover, rapid technological advancements, coupled with the growing complexity in healthcare provision, are fast rendering existing medical devices obsolete, and therefore spurring the need for equipment upgrades.
Medical equipment leasing and medical equipment rental services offer considerable advantages in comparison to other modes of equipment financing. Both cash-strapped small-scale healthcare facilities as well as resource-rich large-scale medical enterprises are opting for the leasing and rental mode due to the lower total cost of ownership, and tax benefits realized when compared to outright purchase of equipment. Medical equipment leasing is gaining in prominence due to the ease of securing leasing agreements, when compared to the hassles of a getting bank loan approved. Through equipment leasing, healthcare institutions can avoid locking-in capital into new equipment purchases, and improve the return on investment.
