Medical Device Outsourcing: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) January 14, 2015
Follow us on LinkedIn – Medical device companies across the world are constantly looking to improve time-to-market, time-to-volume (TTV), and time-to-profit (TTP), to enhance competitiveness in the market. Shorter product lifecycles, incrementally higher levels of technology sophistication, and the shrinking window of opportunity, exert pressure on their ability to quickly bring products to the market, and gain first mover advantages. Intensifying competition in the industry is forcing companies to recalibrate their strategies and explore new efficiencies in product design, development, manufacturing and marketing. Focus on manufacturing agility and flexibility to reduce costs and accelerate time to market is driving demand for outsourcing services. Medical device outsourcing services help OEMs to shorten development and production scale-up time, expand market share, and benefit from premium pricing and cost advantages. The market, in general, closely follows the growth patterns in the medical device industry, and is also dependent on the extent to which device manufacturers choose to outsource their manufacturing and assembly operations. The market is also significantly influenced by rising incidence of diseases specifically cardiac and neurological disorders, which are driving demand for a wide variety of medical devices.
Key factors driving demand for medical devices include aging population, increased spending on healthcare, enhanced disease screening and detection techniques, greater emphasis on cost-effective and minimally invasive therapies, and technological advances in diagnostics and therapeutics. Rising acceptance of outsourcing among OEMs of ophthalmic, cardiovascular, oncology, neurology and dental devices will foster growth in the market. Rising demand for R&D and post market engineering support services for medical devices is also expected to benefit the market. OEMs are now focused on leveraging services that can help reduce product recalls, shorten regulatory validation time and increase time-to-market. This is expected to spur demand for a wide gamut of services ranging from R&D to product manufacturing. Demand for testing services especially has surged due to increasing use of electronics in medical devices. As several Class II and III medical devices are embedded with microelectronic chips, meticulous device testing has become vital to ensure user safety and product performance.
