① gradually increase market capacity

    National Development and Reform Commission studies show that by 2020, the level of urbanization will reach 58.5%. Urbanization will inevitably bring tremendous consumption growth, a qualitative change in people's consumption for new ideas and consumer demand will occur, and therefore safer, more reliable and more comfortable to use disposable sterile medical polymer products the consumer space. With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, health awareness growing, urbanization depth and a higher proportion of aging, the market size of disposable medical polymer products will continue to grow.

In recent years, China's deepening medical and health system and medical system reform, to achieve universal health insurance system in the years to lay a solid foundation. Improve the health care system stimulating market demand for disposable medical polymer products.

In addition, as the countries of epidemics and infectious disease prevention and control measures, as well as the economic and social development, due to changes in the environment and people's living habits, the incidence of non-communicable diseases took a significant rise is expected to be driven by a the rapid growth of medical polymer products market demand for disposable medical products, the company offers a broad room for growth.


② domestic industry consolidation is inevitable and upgrade

    Although the total amount of disposable medical products market continues to grow polymer, but the products are mainly concentrated in the low end of popular products, benefits are not obvious. Domestic disposable sterile medical polymer products manufacturer product homogeneity, low production severely, enterprises easily form a vicious price war led competitive situation, some companies even lower than or close to cost price to capture the market, This short-sighted behavior is not conducive to long-term development of the industry. At present, China disposable medical polymer products industry, there are a lot of family, cottage enterprises, which are the size and existence of a lower level of technology, production quality is uneven, poor production and product quality and after-sales service and so can not be guaranteed . As labor costs and raw material prices continued to rise, the deepening of industrial structure upgrading some not scale, production quality, poor technology, the company will lose its competitive advantage in the marketplace. In addition, external pressures and challenges other emerging market countries such as Brazil, India and other countries in the same industry enterprises can not be ignored.

Therefore, in the future competition disposable medical polymer products industry, on one hand the needs of enterprise competitive advantage of products through the application, to improve product quality standards and new materials and new technology to improve the process and other ways to improve product quality , out of hovering in the low grade product level homogeneity competitive situation. On the other hand, domestic production enterprises, small scale, but according to the overall layout, production areas is relatively concentrated, which the inter-enterprise competition if they can establish an orderly and rational division of labor, the formation of large-scale development proposed single species the higher requirements. Future disposable medical products manufacturer Polymer need both to reduce production costs through economies of scale advantages, but also need to establish a base in the form of medical supplies industry, to strengthen the leading products, improve product reliability, security and enhanced services for future development guide, can help improve competitive differentiation and bargaining power in the market.


③ enhance value-added products is the trend of development of the industry

    Traditional disposable sterile medical polymer products are usually played using its own physical characteristics of anti-bacterial treatment, surgery or the nursing process, infection control and reduce patient suffering and so on, these features rely mainly on the physical properties of the material used and control the production process to reach. With the development of clinical medicine, the pharmaceutical and medical polymer products combine tradition is an important trend in the development of disposable sterile medical polymer products industry. For example, in the wound and wound care, just accompanied by clinical applications targeting damaged cells repair and promote cell regeneration dressing trace elements, such as alginate and other biological dressings with drug ingredients dressings. Such dressing compared to traditional dressings in addition to play the traditional role of creating a sterile environment for wounds and prevent infections, but also can promote epithelial cell regeneration, inhibition of granulation tissue overgrowth, ultimately wound site play to reduce wound scarring and promote wound healing effects. As people on treatment, care requirements continue to increase, growing competition in the industry and business to competitive differentiation and break the low quality of the current market, the homogeneity of the strong desire of the competitive situation that would phase treatment with medical products combine to enhance value-added approach will become an important trend in the development of future disposable sterile medical products industry.


④ integration of circulation, reduce distribution costs

    Medical equipment prices were inflated, the problem does not lie in the production processes, inflated part is mainly produced in circulation. In general, medical supplies from the manufacturer to the hospital, usually through an agent, Region agency, the provincial agency and other multiple levels, and each time changed hands at least 30% of the profits bonus.

According to the Guangdong Provincial Price Bureau survey reported that in all of the hospitals surveyed, 89% of hospital medical supplies purchased from major wholesale enterprises, 11% of hospitals were purchased from both wholesale and production enterprises, the vast majority of medical supplies go through wholesalers intermediate links, and increase the rate of fare increases circulation and lack of effective supervision. At the same time, the report shows that in the intermediate circulation, Guangdong province generally high value medical supplies from the factory (or import) to medical institutions sold to patients, with an average increase 2-3 times, individual products or even up to ten times. These medical supplies changed hands several times, layers increases, thereby artificially high prices seriously damaged the interests of patients (Source: Guangdong Provincial Price Bureau, "the price of medical supplies research report" (2011)).

Issuers from the entry of disposable medical products industry started, it started to build a nationwide sales platform with medical logistics network, establish a direct supply relationship with the rest of the main hospital. By the coverage of a broad sales network, avoiding the problem of product prices were inflated due to the distribution channels produced, and establish a high quality low price brand in the hospital and patients.


⑤ reduce the risk of infection, improve health service quality and safety

    The hospital infection control rate the hospital evaluation system, an important indicator. Early on, mainly because some foreign disposable medical products business products, with its close cooperation with the medical staff in the world and for treatment, surgical procedures fully grasp, covering all aspects of hygiene disposable medical clinics, surgical procedures through which, protection products to reduce the risk of infection in patients and health care workers. However, due to higher prices of foreign products lead to increased health care costs. In China, the cost of control is an important factor in patient and hospital management needs to be considered, especially in most of our relatively underdeveloped areas, can not be in all aspects of the clinical use of the popularity of the full range of health care through large-scale application of disposable medical products infection control measures.

The issuer and the subsequent establishment of a fairly long period of time, our medical supplies industry mainly family, cottage-based, which is characterized by lower scale manufacturers and technical level, production quality is uneven, compared with the production environment poor product quality and after-sales service and can not be guaranteed, as well as the national hospital infection rates and medical malpractice resulting in a higher level has been. Hospital infection and complications not only affect the patient's postoperative rehabilitation and life safety will result in additional medical expenses and hospital patients, to patients and society enormous economic burden and a waste of medical resources, focus on the outbreak of nosocomial infection events even affect social stability. All levels of hospitals, medical institutions for hospital infection control for the disposable medical polymer products market provided the impetus for growth.
