Sales Channel Outlook

Based on Sales Channel, the market is segmented into B2B and FMCG. The B2B category acquired the maximum market share in 2019. In this, organizations directly sell these products to other companies & not to the consumers. B2B distribution channel possesses longer sales cycles and higher-order values and is expected to record a low rate of growth during the forecast period due to the barriers on an entry in the B2B business. Additionally, these barriers include the absence of substantial investments in order to develop technologically improved products and challenges regarding coordinating with numerous providers.

End Use Outlook

The rising number of hospitals and surgical procedures are among the main drivers of the segment growth during the forecast period.
