Healthcare industry analysis

One year on: vaccination successes and failures – The Economist Intelligence Unit

How is the healthcare industry changing?

The onset of the covid-19 pandemic has increased global attention on the healthcare industry across complex issues from workforce shortages, vaccine equity, public spending and digital health. Despite the healthcare industry’s small market size, it is one of the most lucrative globally. Heightened interest in the sector since the pandemic began, higher quality general healthcare and rising life expectancy are likely to boost spending and healthcare industry growth in the coming years.

Our field-leading analysis reliably forecasts the challenges and opportunities faced by the sector. We cover healthcare industry news, including covid-19 , changes and critical risks facing the healthcare industry and new technology in the healthcare industry.

Supply-chain disruptions and drug shortages responsible for vaccine timeline delays pose significant risks to the global healthcare industry. Equally, a reliance on limited players to produce medicines at scale is an enduring challenge across healthcare industry sectors. The growth of point-of-care testing in APAC holds promise, as do regional booms in IVD markets in both APAC and LATAM and developments in tissue diagnostics (TDx) . Ultimately, to move forward and create a truly global industry, a streamlined regulatory system is critical.
