Healthcare Simulation Market – Current Trends and Global Forecast 2026


According to the new market research report “Healthcare/Medical Simulation Market by Product and Service (Patient Simulators, High Fidelity Simulators, Low Fidelity Simulators, Task Trainer, Surgical Simulators, Virtual tutor) By End User (Academic Institutes, Hospital) – Global Forecast to 2026″, published by MarketsandMarkets™, the Healthcare Simulation Market is projected to reach USD 3.4 billion by 2026 from USD 1.7 billion in 2021, at a CAGR of 15.1% during the forecast period.

Opportunity: shortage of healthcare personnel;

The shortage of skilled healthcare workers is the prime factor contributing to an increasing number of preventable deaths across the globe. According to the June 2021 article published by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the rapidly increasing demand for physicians in the US will outpace its supply and is projected to create a shortfall of 37,80-124,000 physicians by 2034. Additionally, due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, the global healthcare industry is facing a severe shortage of healthcare workers. Physicians and nurses are frontline forces but are at a high risk of contracting COIVD-19. Many nursing schools worldwide are using technology in innovative ways to enhance teaching and learning capabilities.

For instance, webcasting lectures are provided to a large number of students on several campuses. Clinical simulation centers and agreements with local healthcare service providers are helping the nursing schools secure clinical and other opportunities for students. This has increased the adoption of medical simulation solutions among end users, thereby offering lucrative growth opportunities to the vendors operating in the healthcare/medical simulation market.
