The client: Medical devices manufacturer
Area of engagement: Demand and supply planning
In the current healthcare environment, delivering value to the patients becomes a major concern for the organizations. The medical devices industry is shifting from an input-based approach to a value-based approach to improve the health outcomes and meet the growing demand for promising healthcare solutions. Despite the political uncertainties, companies in the medical devices industry are restructuring their health policies and initiatives to create a better value proposition by offering innovative products and solutions. The growth of the medical devices industry can be attributed to factors such as aging population, the proliferation of chronic diseases, and increasing emphasis on care and treatment.
Although the relative entry of global players is promoting the growth of the medical devices space, additional factors that are promising the growth of the industry over the years include:
- Ensuring product quality: Since the medical devices space is witnessing relentless competition, leading manufacturers must offer top-notch quality devices to avoid product recalls. For a medical device manufacturer, a product recall can negatively impact the brand’s reputation and the company’s overall ROI. It becomes essential for the organizations to ensure safety, security, and reliability to retain their position in the marketplace.
- Localization of medical devices: In the emerging economies, local medical devices manufacturers are more successful as compared to the international counterparts. So, leading organizations should indulge in effective market research to identify the potential gaps to meet the business requirements of the local populace.
To overcome the burgeoning cost of product development and efficiently bridge the demand-supply gap, prominent organizations are leveraging demand and supply planning solutions. Demand and supply planning helps businesses forecast the demand and accordingly align their inventory levels to enhance profitability.
