Bigger, Stronger, Faster
(MPO, May 1, 2017) As healthcare continues to be such an area of attention for headlines, it’s no surprise that more companies are seeking to get involved in the marketplace to offer solutions to the array of growing concerns such as chronic diseases, cancer, and diabetes, not to mention an aging baby boomer population. Most notable of late is the entrance of tech industry leaders such as Apple, Google, IBM, Microsoft, Samsung, and Amazon, among others. These companies bring a unique skill set that’s not commonly seen in healthcare, including consumer design, data management, and Internet of Things familiarity. Given the direction healthcare is headed, all of these are valuable assets and make these companies new threats to traditional medical device OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).
On the other hand, these companies are not accustomed to functioning in the highly regulated medical device manufacturing environment. While many have brought in experts from the medtech sector, they still lack the manufacturing environment and culture that goes along with that regulatory knowledge. For them, outsourcing to a company that lives the regulated manufacturing environment every single day makes economic sense. There’s no need for these companies to bring in a skilled workforce to develop medical devices when there are outsourcing providers who specialize in it.
(January 28, 2017) Despite seeing the Big Three – DePuy, Zimmer and Biomet – shrink to two in a 2014 merger, Warsaw’s renowned orthopedic cluster appears to be in growth mode, and there is heightened optimism with the arrival of President Donald Trump and the Republican controlled Congress.
The orthopedic industry already was showing strength in 2016, and local officials believe it will continue as the industry gains notoriety as a magnet for innovation.
