Client: A leading dental implants manufacturer
Area of engagement: Transport network optimization
Medical implants are artificial devices or tissues, which are used to replace damaged biological structures or enhance an existing biological structure. Typically, medical implants are used in areas such as dental, cardiovascular, neurological, orthopedic disorders, and others.
Dental implants are the most preferred treatment option for individuals who have lost their tooth or teeth due to periodontal diseases, injury, or other conditions that require the replacement of natural tooth. Additionally, the growing number of dental injuries owing to road accidents and sports injuries are also considered to be some of the major factors fueling the demand for dental implants. The growth of the industry is also driven by the rising awareness about oral care, increasing demand for cosmetic and preventive dental procedures, and the availability of advanced dental implants with improved success rates. However, the growth of the dental implants industry is restricted due to certain factors, which include:
- Increased complexity of medical equipment: The increased complexity of devices results in a tougher diagnosis and repair processes and increases the cost of field service. It is also raising the cost of training field service technicians and raising the bar for salaries to hire more qualified field service engineers.
- Increased competition: Increased competition from start-ups and spin-offs reduces the profit margin for dental implants manufacturers. Industry consolidations and other changes are eroding customer loyalty since differentiators are not as clear-cut and choice has increased.
