  • According to Netscribes, the Indian medical devices market has grown from Rs. 734.73 bn in FY20 to Rs. 816.42 bn in FY21, showcasing an growth of 11% year on year (y-o-y). The core reason for this growth was an increase in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, expansion of purchasing power and affordability, changing landscape of medical devices, and a substantial rise in investments in the healthcare industry.
  • In India, there is now a substantial disparity between supply and demand for medical devices. The medical equipment business in India is currently led by large international corporations with substantial service networks.

This is justified by the literacy rate of the country as the overall literacy rate of the country is 74% in 2011 out of which 85% in urban out of total urban population will in rural segment the literacy rate just 69% of the total rural population in the country.
  • Covid 19- Covid 19 had both positive and negative long term impacts on the sector.

  • Changing landscape of medical devices - The orthopedic market is expanding as a result of novel implant materials and improved surgical procedures (such as the hybrid replacement approach utilized in hip replacement surgery).
  • Increase in incidence of non-communicable diseases - An increase in NCDs such as cardiovascular illnesses, cancer, obesity, and diabetes (India has the greatest number of diabetes patients in the world) has been attributed to sedentary lifestyles, an aging population, and high levels of stress. Non-communicable illnesses are anticipated to account for more than 75% of India's disease burden by 2025.
  •  Growth in medical tourism - Increased medical tourism means an increase in the number of patients in hospitals, which means a larger need for advanced and high-quality medical care from doctors and medical institutions.
  • Expansion of purchasing power and affordability - A thriving economy has increased disposable income and contributed to a rise in the standard of living while rising income and affordability have raised the need for healthcare services. From FY 2019 to FY 2021, healthcare spending increased dramatically, from Rs. 2730 bn to Rs. 4720 bn.
  • Substantial rise in investments in the healthcare industry- Given that the industry is supported by government policies that have been liberalized and the provision for allowing up to 100% foreign direct investment (FDI) through the automatic route, there are chances in this expansion for both Indian companies and foreign manufacturers.

Government Initiatives

  • The industry is regulated by Section 3(b)(iv) of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940.
  • The Indian government has taken a number of actions, including lowering taxes and easing import duties as well as funding research and development.To expand the market for medical devices, (R&D) and 100 percent FDI are needed.
  • In an effort to improve the market, it started Atmanirbhar Bharat. Indian producers were encouraged by the Make in India programme to address the rising demand for necessary medical equipment. Several state governments have taken on the responsibility of establishing medical device manufacturing parks in their respective states as part of the Make in India initiative. This would promote low-cost domestic production of high-end medical equipment and quickly increase employment growth.
  • In 2020 the government has started in Incentive schemes like the production-linked incentives (PLI) scheme for medical devices , along with this they did an international collaboration with the UK to establish an effective framework for information sharing and collaboration between the UK Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO), an Indian organization (UK MHRA). 
  • In India, there were 25,778 governmental hospitals and about 43,486 private hospitals as of November 2020. As the senior population and income base grow, the numbers are expected to rise.
  • To improve the acceptance of Indian medical products in the international market, the government proposed new medicine, cosmetics, and medical devices bill in October 2021.
  • In September 2021, the government granted approval for a plan to erect a medical devices park in the industrial township of Nalagarh, Himachal Pradesh, which is located in the Solan district.
  • The government provided each state Rs 1 billion in November 2019 and approved the construction of four medical device parks in Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, and Kerala.

Hicks Thermometer India Strengths

  • Due to COVID-19 there is an increase in demand for medical equipment like thermometers, monitoring devices, disposable masks, and gloves and the company can benefit from this increase in demand. 
  • Company has a higher ROE and ROCE as compared to its Peers along with the highest 5-year CAGR profit growth 
  • Company is the market leader in the Indian market for thermometers which gives them an upper edge against its competitors

Hicks Thermometer India Shortcomings

  • The overall debt of the company has been increasing which can be a concern as the GSec yields are rising with inflation.
  • The company should focus to take into consideration of the PLI scheme which can benefit them because till now the management has taken no step to be a part of the incentive scheme. The Production Linked Incentives Scheme (PLI) Scheme for Medical Devices manufacturing proposes a financial incentive to boost domestic manufacturing and attract large investment in medical devices segments such as cancer care devices, radiology and imaging devices, anesthetics devices, and implants, etc. A document for the same is attached to the report.

Hicks Thermometer India Opportunities

  • Large potential to increase market penetration due to COVID-19.
  • It is a sector with high growth potential in India due to the large gap between demand and supply of medical equipment.
  • Changing landscape of medical devices, expansion of purchasing power and affordability, and substantial rise in investments in the healthcare industry are the key driver for the growth in the industry

Hicks Thermometer India Threats

  • Many medical devices are expected to have a price cap fixed by the government, which is expected to have a negative impact on the hospital industry in the short term, thereby negatively impacting the market for non-contact thermometers.
  • A high competition from both international and domestic competitors such as Johnson and Johnson, Opto Circuits, ResMed, Poly medicure poses a threat to business.
