Healthcare Supply Chain Management Market Analysis
The Healthcare Supply Chain Management Market size is estimated at USD 3.21 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 5.41 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 11.02% during the forecast period (2024-2029).
COVID-19 significantly impacted healthcare supply chain management as several countries worldwide reported that active pharmaceutical ingredients were in short supply of drugs and surgical equipment during the early phase of the pandemic. However, the COVID-19 pandemic created a need for the seamless tracking and tracing of pharmaceutical items, which boosted the market growth in the later phase of the pandemic.
For instance, according to an article published in Elsevier Public Health Emergency Collection in March 2022, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted global supply chains at an unprecedented speed and scale. As per the article, gaps between supply and demand increased post-pandemic. Various companies are currently developing innovative supply chain management solutions in the healthcare segment for tracking pharmaceuticals, due to which the studied market is expected to grow during the forecast period.
The major factors driving the market growth are increasing efforts of healthcare providers to reduce cost and improve the quality of the supply chain and rising demand for the quality inventory management system.
The advantages offered by various healthcare supply chain management software applications are leading to their rising demand, which is expected to boost market growth. For instance, according to an article published in Saudi Pharmaceutical Journal in November 2022, in order to deliver better patient care, inventory and supply chain management primarily focuses on increasing productivity, reducing costs, and receiving and distributing the required supplies on time.
Workflow organization and tracking of inventory, purchases, orders, and payments depend on effective supply chain management. The use of supply chain management in healthcare settings has increased recently. Healthcare institutions are responsible for planning, purchasing, managing, handling, tracking, and transporting stock such as medications, medical equipment, and supplies. Therefore, inventory management is crucial and is expected to propel the supply chain management market growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the rising launches and partnerships among the market players to expand the healthcare supply chain management solutions are expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in February 2022, Avery Dennison Smartrac launched its AD Minidose U9 RAIN RFID inlay for pharmaceutical applications, unlocking critical RFID value for healthcare, pharmacies, and laboratory asset management. Also, in August 2021, Tageos, a French-headquartered company, launched its EOS-202 U9 RAIN RFID inlay for healthcare and pharmaceutical applications.
Additionally, the growing adoption of supply chain management solutions by various government bodies has been reported in recent times, which is also expected to significantly contribute to the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2022, the United Arab Emirates' Ministry of Health launched AR-powered drug packs with a QR code for paperless access to drug-related information. It will help patients to read drug information by simply scanning a QR code on the medicine box.
Therefore, owing to the advantages of inventory management solutions, rising launches by market players, and increasing adoption of supply chain management by government organizations, the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, the high cost of implementation of supply chain management software is expected to restrain market growth.
Healthcare Supply Chain Management Market Trends
Cloud based Segment is Expected to Register a Significant Growth Over the Forecast Period
The network, storage, and capacity provided by cloud-based supply chain solutions operate on a flexible, usage-based model that allows for faster updates and adaptations. Scaling up (or down), adapting to new market conditions, connecting with new partners, and adding new suppliers are all potential uses.
The segment is expected to grow during the forecast period owing to the rising research studies and advancements in cloud-based solutions. For instance, according to an article published in August 2022 by the National Center of Biotechnology Information, a study conducted in Hong Kong and the United States mentioned that the technical sustainability of cloud-based blockchain could be combined with artificial intelligence (AI) for efficient healthcare supply chain management. Therefore, such research studies boost the developments in cloud-based healthcare supply chain management operations.
Additionally, the rising adoption of cloud-based supply chain solutions by various healthcare organizations is also expected to boost segment growth during the forecast period. For instance, in October 2022, Indiana-based Methodist Hospitals partnered with cloud solutions company Infor to create a cloud-based healthcare application that will allow the health system to standardize key processes in various areas, such as finance, human resources, supply chain, and operations. Such partnerships are expected to expand the cloud-based solution market during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the launch of advanced cloud-based supply chain management software is expected to propel market growth. For instance, in May 2022, Jump Technologies launched a cloud-based software solution called JumpStock that integrates with the electronic medical record (EMR), enterprise resource planning (ERP), or scheduling systems and enhances its mobile scanning solution to improve compliance for recording lot and serial numbers, as well as expiration dates of product used in hospitals, allowing hospitals to save money on supply hoarding, physician preference variances, and stock-outs.
Therefore, owing to the high adoption of cloud-based supply chain management and rising launches and partnerships by market players, the segment is expected to propel during the forecast period.
North America is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share Over The Forecast Period
North America is anticipated to hold the major share of the market over the forecast period owing to the increasing risks from substandard and falsified drugs and stringent regulatory frameworks, and mandatory implementation of GS1 and Unique Device Identification (UDI) on pharmaceutical drugs and medical devices, coupled with the presence of large manufacturing hubs. For instance, in July 2022, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the final guidelines and policies regarding the unique device identification system to adequately identify medical devices sold in the United States from manufacturing through distribution to patient use. Therefore, the availability of such national government guidelines and recommendations is expected to propel the demand for supply chain management in the region during the forecast period.
Furthermore, the increasing adoption of various business strategies by the market players, such as collaborations, partnerships, and product launches in the region, is also contributing to the market expansion. For instance, in October 2022, Tecsys Inc., a Quebec-based supply chain management software company, launched a new feature, Elite Healthcare Receiving, in its end-to-end Elite Healthcare supply chain execution platform. The new feature is a hospital receiving application that seamlessly integrates receiving and delivery processes into a health system's supply chain operations. Therefore, the addition of new features to simplify the supply chain operations in healthcare organizations is projected to augment the market growth over the forecast period.
