Supply Chain Development in Orthopaedics - OMTEC 2012 Opening Panel Discussion

The State and Future of the Orthopaedic Industry:
A High Altitude View
(Part 4 of 6) 

Supply Chain Development in Orthopaedics

"What are the key overall trends for orthopaedic suppliers?"

"Does the volume of inventory that OEMs keep onhand have a direct impact on the supply base?"

"Do offshore manufacturing facilities affect OEM make vs. buy decisions?"

"Does the investment community pay attention to the supply segment of orthopaedics?"

"Is there a future for small suppliers in orthopaedics?"



In response to unresolved challenges facing the orthopaedic industry (e.g. global economic turmoil, slowing markets, inflation, market consolidation, etc.), the 2012 OMTEC Opening Panel Discussion sought to extract actionable advice and insight from respected industry leaders on how to translate today’s issues into relatable language, and then prepare to act.
