Medical Technology Association of India (MTaI), which represents research-based medical technology companies with a large footprint in manufacturing and training in India, recently said that its member companies are ready to brace up for any shortages in medical devices and equipment arising out of scarcity of raw materials from China.
With the shortages of raw materials from China, there may soon be a scarcity of commonly used medical devices like digital thermometers, infrared thermometers, nebulizers, blood pressure monitors and glucometers manufactured in India as reported by the Press. The supply lines may not sustain as the geographies affected are spreading.
The wide spectrum of medical devices and equipment that MTaI members have, remained unaffected as these companies do not depend on imports from China.
Pavan Choudary, Chairman, MTaI and Managing Director, Vygon India said, “MTaI members will try and offset any supply gaps arising out of the import shortages from China. MTaI member companies’ products conform to the highest quality standards and are imported primarily from USA, Europe and Japan or manufactured under strict quality control in India”.
Medical Technology Association of India (MTaI) is an association of research-based medical technology companies who have made remarkable investments in Manufacturing, R&D and Health Care Workers Training in India.
