What the doctor ordered
After maintaining growth during the devastating recession, the industry will continue to expand over the next five years. The US population is expected to grow older, leading to a higher average age and greater need for medical supplies. Additionally, new cardiovascular and neurological devices will fuel demand for industry products, boosting revenue for wholesalers.
Medical supplies wholesalers purchase large volumes of medical and surgical equipment, instruments and supplies from suppliers, store these items at their distribution centers and provide delivery of these products and related services to medical and dental practitioners, clinics and hospitals. The industry does not include instruments and goods that are distributed to ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
