A new era in
medical technology

The medtech sector faces a challenge. The pressure on health costs is rising and the regulatory requirements are increasing globally. In the digital age, connected products and alternative business models are called for. This may sound simple, but it is actually also complex as the cost pressure is restricting the ability to innovate.
Innovations for new markets

For medical technology companies, four fields of action are key to mastering the competitive market dynamics:

  • Product innovation: The increase of chronic cardiovascular diseases such as diabetes or hypertension offers potential for growth.
  • Mobile health: The rise of post-acute care services such as rehab, nursing home or outpatient services creates new opportunities for user-friendly, smart mobile health products.
  • Regulatory approval: In order to exploit new sales opportunities in the APAC and BRIC markets, companies have to cope with additional regulatory approval procedures.
  • Digitalization: The lifecycle of medical technology products has decreased significantly due to the digital transformation. This requires distributors to provide more efficient product and production engineering as well as additional expertise in the area of usability.
