The establishment of new hospitals as well as the willingness to acquire sophisticated technologies for the operation rooms shall boost unit sales. Particularly, the demand for medium-priced integrated workstations and low-cost stand-alone monitors is on the rise and can strengthen unit sales in the replacement market.
"The replacement of existing units in countries such as Poland where a large number of anaesthesia equipment have already been installed in the previous decade, promises much growth," says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Krishanu Bhattacharjee. "With countries looking to step-up the process of hospital-IT integration, the demand for anaesthesia information management system (AIMS) is expected to grow in the coming years."
Moreover, with Bulgaria and Romania joining the European Union (EU), budgetary concerns in the price sensitive eastern European market are expected to ease off to an extent. The willingness to invest in high-end technologies for the operating rooms as well as the drive for hospital-IT integration is likely to promote unit sales.
However, price sensitivity still continues to challenge participants as it ensured the influx of several low-cost manufacturers, especially from Asia. Low-cost manufacturers have been active in the stand-alone monitors segment of the market.
Moreover, with the governments playing a strong role in issuing of tenders as well as backing the local manufacturers for the same, the market attractiveness for vendors from other countries has suffered a setback. The lack of proper channels of distribution and stiff challenge from low-cost manufacturers remain the chief causes of concern for most of the market participants.
"Hence, global vendors looking to gain a foothold in this market must offer high-end technology at competitive prices," explains Krishanu. "They should also build strategic alliances with local vendors and form a robust service and support network to their end users to emerge successful in the eastern European markets."
Companies must also strive to find and implement innovative strategies to cater to the needs of the upcoming private healthcare sector in Eastern Europe, which is expected to boost market growth.
