Market Dynamics

The government of developed and developing countries is focused on enhancing the healthcare system's reach to the rural sector. Their approach towards delivering better care on-site to the patient is gaining traction. The high flow of surgeries across the globe is increasing the demand for mobile surgical solutions in order to provide better care.

Countries such as Brazil, Ecuador, etc. are implementing universal health care systems. Under these programs various health care networks including the Ministry of Public Health, Social Security Institute, national police, and non-governmental and private health care facilities are integrated. For instance, Ecuador initiated a mobile surgery care program “Cinterandes Foundation”.

The NGO implemented a fully functioning mobile surgical unit assembled on a 24-foot truck providing low-cost surgical care to patients in remote, rural, and urban areas. The healthcare cost is increasing day-by-day making it difficult for low and middle-class income consumers to afford the enhanced surgical care. More than 33 million individuals face huge payments due to surgery each year. Mobile surgical units are equipped with advanced equipment and a feasible surgery delivery model providing an affordable solution. These factors are expected to augment the market growth.

Pandemic has disrupted healthcare functionality across the globe. Treating Covid-19 patient on high priority resulted in most of the surgeries getting delayed. According to International Consortium, more than 58,000 planned surgeries were canceled or delayed in India and more than 24.8 million elective surgeries were canceled globally. Considering the increasing unmet needs of the patient's for advanced surgical units is expected to boost the market growth. Major players are investing high in the development of new products in order to attract new customers. Business enhancement activities through strategic acquisition and partnership are factors expected to impact the growth of target market.

In 2017, Mobile Medical International Corporation, a global provider of surgical units delivered three mobile medical facilities to Mobile Surgery International. The delivered surgical units are providing 2,000 surgeries per year to patients suffering from untreated cleft lip and cleft palate facial deformities. The great challenge for emergency care will be whether such services can be developed in a coordinated manner across diverse and fragmented health systems to optimize health outcomes and reduce costs. There is no single solution to the problem of providing emergency care everywhere; but task-shifting, point-of-care ultrasound and telemedicine services, when scaled up as part of an organized and collaborative approach will improve access to and quality and effective healthcare care in rural and remote areas. In addition, high cost associated with units is expected to challenge the growth of target market. However, collaborations between donors and social entrepreneurs can aid in the market adoption of mobile surgery units. This can be accomplished through the integration of innovation in mobile technology, which can only be fully utilized if investors, social entrepreneurs, and private sector investors can come together and leverage their respective strengths. In addition, digital health strategies are critical in identifying gaps and defining priorities, which will create a favorable framework for adoption and expansion. These factors are expected to create new opportunities for players in order to enhance the business over the forecast period.
