Manufacturing Outsourcing: Opportunities for OEM Partnering

The global medical device industry will grow to about US $302 bn in 2017. The modest growth rates of the US and EU regions have OEM’s pursuing regions of greater growth, including India.

The growing Indian medical device market currently relies on imports. There are significant import substitution opportunities for medical device OEMs. Challenges in India differ from US and EU; such as design rationalization/ localization of devices, regulatory standards to meet the OEM brand, in-country manufacturing and distribution.

International OEM’s value manufacturing partners with: global reach, medical device experience, design rationalization capability, and an understanding of the unique distribution systems within India.
