Covid-19 Impact on the Physiotherapy Equipment Market

Asia Pacific countries such as China and India has resulted in delays in the production and shipment of physiotherapy products. All these factors are expected to negatively impact the growth of the physiotherapy equipment market. On the other hand, as per the recommendations by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT), COVID-19 patients are recommended to undergo physiotherapy for 3-4 weeks for the early recovery and improvement of their overall health. Thus, the demand for physiotherapy equipment is expected to increase in the coming five years due to the growing number of COVID-19 cases.

Opportunities in Emerging Markets:

China, Japan, India, Brazil, and Australia are emerging markets for physiotherapy equipment. These markets lack proper standards and government regulations and offer huge potential for providers unable to meet US standards.

In China, the healthcare infrastructure is in urgent need of modernization, owing to the growth in the aging population and the rising incidence of chronic disorders. In 2013, China had 83.7 million people with disabilities, of which 65 million cannot survive without assistive devices. The aging population (60+ years) will make up 20% of the Chinese population by 2025. Similarly, Japan is another country with one of the most rapidly increasing aging populations in the world. By 2025, 36% of the Japanese population will have crossed 60 years. India is also a high potential market for physiotherapy equipment on account of its huge aging population base, growing healthcare standards, and flourishing home healthcare sector. Moreover, the increasing competition in mature markets will compel physiotherapy manufacturers to focus on emerging markets.
