Medical Equipment Calibration Services Market is divided into two segments, namely; by equipment types and by types of services. Amongst the equipment types, cardiovascular monitors calibration services market is expected to grow at a rapid rate, reporting a CAGR of 14.0% during forecast period 2014 – 2020. Similarly, by the end of 2020, imaging equipment calibration services market is identified as a largest segment. This is followed by vitals sign monitors and other patient monitoring equipment.

Furthermore, the market is also classified on the basis of types of services, such as, in-house calibration services, third party calibration services and OEM calibration services. As of 2013, in-house calibration services market was anticipated as the largest segment. However, by the end of 2020, the market for in-house calibration services is expected to grow at a constant rate due to increasing penetration of third party calibration service providers. Third party service providers are anticipated to emerge as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period owing to ease of access, quick calibration and sophisticated service with less cost. It has also been witnessed that certain service providers are offering 24×7 services with zero downtime for certain critical applications that is further attracting customers. On the other hand OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) are expected to witness decline in their market share. This trend is anticipated as the cost of the instrument to be calibrated is usually higher than third party calibration service provider. Additionally, most of the manufacturers currently are focused on their core competencies and downsizing their labor.

Geographically, in 2013, the European region was anticipated as the largest market in calibration services market globally. The leadership position of Europe is justified by the presence of large number of local and regional players, stringent government regulations for calibration of medical devices and extensive R&D practices. North America held the second largest position in the market and contributed to approximately 33.3% of the total calibration services market revenue in 2012. Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness tremendous increase in its market share and emerge as the fastest growing segment during the forecast period. Rising government regulations, increased awareness amongst patients towards quality of services in hospitals and laboratories and rising number of regional players are key reasons which would account for the growth of calibration services in this region.

The market is highly fragmented and is dominated by number of small and regional players. Fluke Biomedical, Tektronix, Inc., JPen Medical Systems, IN-CAL, and SQTC are some of the major players operating in this market. Companies in this market are adopting strategies of partnership and collaboration to increase their market presence.
