The Medical Appliances and Equipment sector which includes the likes of Hologic Inc. and American Medical Systems Holdings Inc. has several reasons to be concerned. While an aging population of baby boomers should prove to be a major factor in increasing demand for their products along with diseases related to unhealthy lifestyles, President Obama's new healthcare reform could ultimately reduce margins as pricing environments become less flexible. The expansion of insured patients should mean even more demand, but growth obstacles such as increased regulatory involvement will most likely keep growth from happening at exorbitant rates. Companies are looking to supplement some of their growth through investment in emerging markets.

With hospital spending markets turning soft during the recession due to decreased patient volumes, the Medical Appliances and Equipment sector has even more cause for pricing concerns now that Medicaid is beginning to implement a new program that puts medical equipment and supplies into a competitive bidding structure. Starting in nine metropolitan areas, this plan aimed at helping consumers could negatively affect prices to the point that companies are forced to cut back on service offerings. Federal implementation of the program could save a total of $28 billion during the next decade.
