Global Medical Supplies Market- Overview

A medical device is a device or an instrument that is used for the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of medical conditions. Therefore, the medical device market involves the production and sales of medical equipment or devices as well as all the services related to it. Some common examples of medical devices are MRI machines, x-ray machines, CT scanners, home healthcare supplies, surgical supplies, life-saving equipment, etc. These devices are divided into three categories based on the risks they pose to the human body: Class I (no-risk), Class II (low and moderate risks), and Class III and IV (high and extremely high hazards). If the risk connected with the product or device is higher, it will require permission or supervision by a government authority, by a government entity, such as the US Food and Drug Administration in the case of the United States (FDA).

Global Medical Supplies Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Prevalence of Chronic Diseases

The rising prevalence of chronic diseases is the major factor contributing to the growth of the medical supplies market. Previously, chronic diseases were only found in the geriatric population. However, diabetes, heart and lung disease, cancer, and other diseases can now be detected in people of any age. The utilization of medical supplies in the treatment of such medical conditions is fueling the market growth. According to experts, unhealthy lifestyle and eating habits, as well as prolonged working hours, are contributing to the incidence of several chronic diseases, which are expected to rise further in the forecast period.

Technological Advancement in Medical and Healthcare Sector

The adoption and use of advanced technology have witnessed significant growth over the past few years. Due to the increasing application of medical technology that allows professionals to diagnose and treat their patients remotely, the market has expanded significantly. Since the non-emergency patients were advised not to visit hospitals or clinics for the prevention of the spread of the virus, the demand for medical supplies like oxygen masks, blood pressure monitors, disposable masks, etc. for home care has risen significantly during the lockdown period. The same factors are expected to drive the market forward during the forecast period too.

Restraints

Higher Risk on the privacy of the Patient’s Personal Data

The use of remote patient monitoring devices to track patients' vitals has increased in recent years due to their convenience. However, such devices enhance the possibility of a breach of the patient's confidential data and raise security concerns. Every year, hackers attempt to steal medical information from hospitals and health care facilities, and many of those records are later sold on the dark web for thousands of dollars. Therefore, since these devices transmit data to physicians through the internet, they are vulnerable to hacking attacks and data theft as they are connected to the global network.

Impact of Covid-19 on Global Medical Supplies Market

The Covid-19 has had a favorable impact on the market, resulting in increased demand for medical supplies. Soon after the COVID-19 epidemic, healthcare facilities and professionals began prioritizing Covid-19 treatment without any delay, which necessitated the use of medical equipment such as disposable masks, eye-gear, respiratory supplies, hand sanitizers, and disposable gloves. As a result of this predicament, the medical supply sector began to boom during this period.

Medical supplies for wound care, diagnostic and laboratory testing, and other non-emergency medical cases, on the other hand, had to witness an unexpected drop in demand since all non-emergency medical cases were postponed to adhere to the social distancing norms. Given the circumstances, it is reasonable to assume that Covid-19 had a negligible impact on the global medical supply sector.
