The size of the European healthcare facilities management market is forecasted to be growing at a promising CAGR from 2022 to 2027.
The cloud-based deployment platform hosts the software and services platform from remote locations and can be accessed and used from anywhere globally, simply by being connected to the internet. In addition, multiple computers are accessible with the connection of an application, eliminating the need for multiple software installations. The low cost of implementation and easy accessibility to cloud data are the factors that have encouraged users to adopt cloud-based facility management solutions. The International Facilities Management Association (IFMA) defines facilities management as the practice that coordinates the physical workplace with people and the organization's work and encompasses various forms of activities such as equipment maintenance, planning space, and forecasting portfolios.
Outsourcing of facilities management continues to gain in popularity. Organizations assess their operating models to maximize value creation. However, before outsourcing facility management to third parties, they consider the appropriate mix of in-house outsourcing and outsourcing based on capacity, cost, and coverage. The trend is largely driven by increased demand for high-quality work experiences and lower operating costs. Moreover, the increased requirement for outsourcing is due to the more cost for installing in-house facilities management and the complex task of managing a plethora of services.
In addition, increased investment in healthcare infrastructure and hygiene awareness in healthcare facilities are also one of the major factors in the growth of the healthcare facility management market. Furthermore, the rapid increase in technological developments in the health information technology sector will also ensure the industry's strong growth during the forecast period.
Older enterprise resource planning (ERP) software still ranks higher in large companies. Outsourcing solutions cannot be used as isolated solutions in the digital architecture of facilities. They often need to be integrated into ERP systems. Unfortunately, older ERP platforms don't see the workplace as valuable. In addition, companies are concerned about switching to Integrated Workplace Management (IWMS) or Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM) software, and integration is difficult due to the complex functionality of most corporate software solutions. Other factors such as lack of technical expertise and high cost associated with cleaning and disinfecting equipment are expected to hamper the market growth.

With the increasing number of COVID-19 patients, there is an increase in the number of diagnoses and treatments for COVID-19, resulting in large amounts of medical waste. Therefore, maintaining hygiene plays an essential role in managing COVID-19-related situations. In addition, managing inpatient and outpatient services while maintaining social distancing during this epidemic is of the utmost importance. Therefore, health centers should provide care to all patients in the safest way possible. Hence, the factors mentioned above facilitate the demand for management of healthcare facilities during the pandemic.
