“Choosing the right outsourcing partner could be challenging unless you have a strong market intelligence partner to guide your outsourcing decisions,” says a market research expert at Infiniti Research.
Owing to constant cost pressures coupled with rising expectations to reduce time to market, medical device manufacturers are increasingly engaging in outsourcing their device manufacturing and assembly in full or partially. This creates room for medical device companies to focus more on their core competencies and also capitalize on opportunities for cost reduction and speed to market. But are these the only factors that companies must consider before committing to a medical device outsourcing partner? Experts at Infiniti Research believe that there is much more to evaluate and measure when it comes to medical device outsourcing, especially in terms of adhering to the required quality standards.

From the common pitfalls to assessing an outsourcing partners’ vertical integration capabilities, this article encapsulates the core benefits and the many factors to consider before engaging in medical device outsourcing:
Capitalize on resources: Medical device outsourcing facilitates OEMs to take advantage of the third-party resources without having to source and store them locally or train personnel. This will ultimately result in more cost-effective production. Countries including Taiwan, China, and Korea are top medical device manufacturers. Therefore, it is more viable for a US medical device company to outsource production operation entirely overseas rather than bringing in equipment to manufacture medical devices, both in terms of cost and maintaining quality standards.
Focus on core activities: Relying on medical device outsourcing companies gives the opportunity to give more attention to other core activities such as R&D of new medical devices and marketing and promotion of existing products. By doing so, medical device companies can also eliminate challenges relating to recruiting and training new employees in the manufacturing process.
Data and information security: One of the most pressing challenges in outsourcing medical device manufacturing is the threat of loss of private information. In the medical device outsourcing process, it is vital to share technical proprietary information with the manufacturer, increasing the chances of losing private information. This adversity of such risks is more in the case of information being shared with manufacturers in international locations.
Reimbursement policies: The incessant pressure on medical device companies to reduce the product pricing coupled with cost reduction measures taken several market players are hampering the medical device market. Although there is a protuberant increase in healthcare expenditure, many healthcare providers are still reluctant to reimburse medical devices. If this situation prevails, it could affect the medical device outsourcing market at large.
