Overview of the global RFID blood monitoring systems market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global RFID blood monitoring systems market will show an impressive growth during the predicted period and post a CAGR of more than 16% by 2020. RFIDs are gradually replacing the use of 1D and 2D barcodes. Barcodes work only when the scanner is placed directly in front of the label and also do not offer durability. Whereas, RFID uses radio waves to communicate and does not require proper orientation of label and scanner. RFID tags are only required to be within the reading range of the reader, which will drive the efficiency of logistics in various applications including blood transfusions. Barcode is a read-only label where the data can never be changed after it is printed. However, in RFID tags, the data can be rewritten or modified as required. Moreover, RFID tags are durable and reusable, and RFID technology is more secure as the information can be encrypted. These advantages of RFID over barcode scanners will be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the demand for this market in the coming years.

There is a growing need to reduce medical wastage and to improve the efficiencies of manual blood monitoring systems that normally faces several challenges such as medical errors and slow speed in process. RFID technology enables transforming the supply chain automation and visibility and also helps shippers to track assets and shipments in real time. Replacing manual scans, RFID helps blood banks to save considerable time in all processes

Outlook of the global postpartum hemorrhage market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. PPH is the major cause of maternal mortality worldwide. According to CDC estimates, PPH occurs in approximately 18% of total births and accounts for  60% of all maternal deaths. Factors such as the increasing prevalence of PPH in various countries and escalating risk factors associated with PPH will aid in the growth of this market during the predicted period.

In this market study, analysts have estimated that the increasing awareness about PPH would impel market growth during the forecast period. In countries where PPH is a major problem, the issue is frequently well known, but it becomes more prominent when the bleeding is too much. The barriers to PPH prevention and management are larger economic, geographical, and social issues. However, with the advent of organizations like FIGO, the level of awareness among people regarding the prevention and treatment of PPH will also increase. FIGO endorses international recommendations that highlight the provision of skilled birth helpers and upgraded obstetric services as central to efforts to decrease maternal and neonatal mortality.

Product-based segmentation of the postpartum hemorrhage market

  • Uniject prefilled injection system
  • Non-pneumatic anti-shock garment
  • Uterine balloon tamponade

The global market for PPH is dominated by the uterine balloon tamponade segment, which accounted for a market share of more than 46% in 2015. A uterine balloon tamponade is easy-to-use and minimally invasive as it involves the insertion of a balloon device into the uterus to stop the bleeding. Its ability to function as an effective second-line

Global outlook of the over-the-counter (OTC) drugs market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global OTC drug market will grow impressively during the predicted period and will post a revenue of about USD 162 billion by 2020. This industry research report identifies the lenient regulatory framework and the availability of several distribution channels to be some of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The governments of emerging economies have lenient regulations for the approval of OTC medication. This reduces the market barriers in these countries attracting the entry of several vendors. Also, the increasing healthcare costs will also result in patients opting for over the counter drugs rather than consulting physicians. The rise in the number of pharmaceutical retail stores and shift in the focus of pharmaceutical companies towards targeting hypermarkets, supermarkets, and grocery stores as distribution channels for their drugs will also aid in the market’s growth.

This market study estimates that in terms of geography, the Americas will continue to dominate the market during the forecast period and will account for almost 38% of the total revenue shares. The increased consumption and sales of OTC gastrointestinal drugs and the rise in the preference for non-prescription drugs over prescription drugs in Latin American countries such as Brazil and Mexico will drive the growth of the market in this region. Additionally, the rising awareness about health and well-being, proactive healthcare practices, and the concern over growing healthcare costs will also fuel the growth of the OTC medicine market in the Americas.

Overview of the global craniomaxillofacial (CMF) devices market

Technavio’s market research analysts have estimated that the global craniomaxillofacial (CMF) devices market will grow steadily at a CAGR of over 6% by 2020. According to this market research, an important factor leading to the strong growth of this market is the development of effective 3D implants. In recent years, innovations in instrumentation and imaging technology have led to advancements in endoscopic skull base surgery techniques. Since skull base reconstruction of endonasal defects still poses a huge challenge for therapists, the need for vascularized flaps for endonasal reconstruction has increased as it helps to improve the outcome. Additionally, as the use of 3D implants significantly reduces unnecessary surgical revisions, the need for additional surgical expenses will reduce drastically.

The global market for CMF devices is dominated by the Americas, which singlehandedly accounted for approximately 52% of the total market share during 2015. Among all regions in the Americas, North America accounted for the largest share of the market owing to the growth in the number of CMF procedures and the adoption of patient-specific cranial implants.  Furthermore, with the introduction of various materials with better stability and biocompatibility, the product safety of biomaterials has increased. In addition, the focus on developing bioresorbable CMF fixators will also aid in the growth of this market in the Americas during the estimated period.
