The global healthcare supply chain management market is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.45% to grow to US$3.116 billion in 2024 from US$2.2025 billion in 2018. Healthcare supply chain management includes all the activities related to the manufacturing, storage, and transportation of the healthcare products including medical devices, pharmaceutical products, and other services along with healthcare IT. The market is expected to show robust growth during the forecast period owing to the increasing efforts of healthcare providers to reduce cost and improve the quality of the supply chain.
The emergence of cloud-based solutions like Virtual Centralization Supply chain and RFIDs introduced in healthcare supply chain management is also expected to drive the market. Drones are also being introduced to the healthcare supply chain management market to deliver the inventory on time during an emergency. However, the growth in the market may be hampered by the high costs associated with the implementation and maintenance of healthcare supply chain management solutions during the given time frame.
The market has been segmented by component, delivery mode, end-user, and geography. On delivery mode basis, the premise is expected to hold a significant market share owing to its wide adoption. Geographically, North America is projected to be a substantial shareholder in the market during the forecasted period on the account of regulatory requirements of medicines and increasing burden of patients in hospitals in countries like the USA.
