Description

The Indian Medical Technology industry has taken impressive strides in recent years. Growing at a CAGR of 15.6%, the size of the industry is expected to touch $14 billion by 2020 from current levels of $ 3 billion. Besides basic economic fundamentals, a key growth driver is the increase in the overall healthcare industry, which in turn is driven by an increased burden of lifestyle diseases, higher public spending, private investments in healthcare and increased penetration of health insurance.

Industry reports suggest that the epicenter of technology and innovation is shifting towards emerging economies like India and China. Engineering excellence, cost-effective labour, increasing emphasis on intellectual property rights, easier accessibility to the Asian markets and a fast growing domestic market, makes India an ideal manufacturing base and the potential of becoming a global provider of medical devices.

Almost equal in importance as the availability of skilled manpower, medical technology has graduated from a high cost solution available to a smaller strata of the society to being a necessity for providing equitable healthcare services to all. A primary determinant of the level of care to be provided to a patient and in controlling morbidity levels, the role of medical technology is augmented in scaling the reach of healthcare delivery and the need for more affordable and accessible technology solutions has encouraged greater support for domestic manufacturing and innovations in this field.

The industry is hence at a critical inflexion point but the key question is – are we ready for the next big leap? The 4th Medical Technology conference hence aimed at addressing some of the pressing issues that may have an impact on the next wave of growth:

·        What are the impediments to local manufacturing of devices and reduced dependence on imports?

·        Are we geared up with the manpower to unlock the value of technological innovation? How do we plan forward to avoid a technical resource gap?

·        Are we innovating in the right direction – to create more affordable and accessible solutions?

·        Have we harnessed telemedicine sufficiently? What technology and other solutions can drive accessibility and what factors impact their implementation.

·        What role can regulators play in the growth? If Health insurance is deemed a key growth driver, what can be done to enhance its penetration?

 

While solutions to most of these questions are evolving and are probably not short term in nature, our early recognition of these could help the growth trajectory of the industry in the long term.

The Conference had plenary sessions covering:

a.     Meet the Regulator.

b.    Enabling Domestic Manufacturing for our Growing Healthcare Needs.

c.     Medical Technology – Greater Access for Better Healthcare.

d.    Skills and Education for Medical Technology.

e.     Code of Conduct for Medical Technology Industry.

 

The well attended conference attracted speakers of repute. Some of the eminent speakers were from Sushrut Adler Group, Siemens Ltd, Medanta - The Medicity, Trivitron Group of Companies, Sushrut Adler Group, KPMG India Private Limited, Johnson & Johnson Medical India, Max Healthcare Institute Ltd, AIIMS and Siemens Ltd.
