The Impact of COVID-19 on The Medical Device Industry

We are in the midst of an unprecedented global health crisis. As a result, health care systems are overwhelmed, and the effective delivery of medical care to all patients has become a challenge worldwide. To free-up limited space for people being treated for the virus, hospitals have postponed, or cancelled, many elective operations - especially those deemed to be non-essential or non-urgent.

Medical device manufacturers have not escaped the pandemicís impact.

The Industry finds itself playing an urgent role in both helping detect the virus and supplying frontline healthcare workers with the equipment needed to fight it. Industry players outside those realms must still adapt to a changing economic landscape in which supply chains, face-to-face sales interactions, and elective surgeries have all been disrupted.

This crisis calls on the medical device industry to work closely with customers, patients, regulators, and public organizations for the sake of public health. Medical device professionals will have an essential role to play in the fight against COVID-19.

Industries, markets and businesses the world over have been turned upside down by Covid-19, and this impact has been especially profound within the medical device sector.

While many countries have attempted to ease shortages by importing equipment, domestic manufacturing of many devices has also increased during the crisis.

The European Union has postponed its new set of Medical Devices Regulations for medtech Industry by one year.

Many companies from the biotech, pharma and medical devices industries started urgently to develop coronavirus test kits.

In the demand scenario , while elective procedures have decreased significantly and the decrease in demand for devices used in these procedures , there is an increased demand for devices like ventilators, PPE, and diagnostic kits. In last few months , CDSCO has issued several notifications to manufacturing and supply of COVID 19 related devices.

In the following articles in this issue, a galaxy of Indian Industry leaders share their experience and knowledge related to effective combating of current situation and the future short term and long term solutions for growth.
