Global Medical Devices Outsourcing Market: Restraints
Adoption of multiple outsourcing partners is expected to hinder growth of the market. Healthcare companies such as Boston Scientific and Johnson and Johnson are outsourcing medical device manufacturing services to multiple service providers. Due to the lack of end-to-end service providers, different outsourcing partners are used for different processes such as part manufacturing, product design, process validation, and regulatory consultation. This may hinder the growth of the market for medical devices. Multiple outsourcing also causes time constraints and requires effective coordination to ensure enhanced and optimized productivity.
Moreover, confidential data security issues are also expected to limit the market growth. Services such as product designing, product prototyping and process validation involve intellectual property right concerns. Outsourcing R&D services requires extensive data sharing between a medical device manufacturer and service provider. Many medical device manufacturers are reluctant to outsource such services for fear of losing their trade secrets.
