Report: Healthcare/medical simulation market — by product, technology, end-users and services
Fueled by the growing focus on patient safety and technological advancements, the healthcare/medical simulation industry has experienced significant growth over the past decade, except for the past 3 to 4 years, where the market witnessed slow growth due to the global recession. A pivotal factor in the growth of this market has been high fidelity mannequins/patient simulators, which have witnessed substantial growth in recent years owing primarily to recent technological advancements that have created highly realistic simulators competent of very high levels of fidelity. Increasing healthcare costs, rising demand for minimally invasive treatment, and increasing consolidation of manufacturers further propels the market. However, the high cost of simulators, economic slowdown in the developed region, and limited availability of funds inhibits the growth of the market, to a certain extent.
