What will the future look like?

At IGS, we’re asking the questions that are on everyone’s minds. How will COVID-19 affect our world? What is the ‘new normal‘ we will return to after this ‘reset’?

We’re also discussing the possible consequences for our industry. Will we see a market shift to new segments? Will current plans continue as planned or change direction? Will the market become less international? In short: will it be business as usual or will the market look drastically different?

We have many thoughts on these questions, but to be honest: we’re really not sure what will happen. No one is. But we are certain about one thing: during this once-in-a-generation health crisis, it is more important than ever for the medical industry to be ready for the challenges to come.

So to help the industry prepare, we’ve started a research project into the effects of COVID-19. Over the next two weeks, we will be talking to key players in our industry to learn more about what changes in the market they are seeing and where they expect we are heading. What possible scenarios should our industry prepare for? And how will this affect the expectations towards OEMs, CMOs and toolmakers?

After completing the interviews, we expect to process the collected data in two weeks. We will then provide full access to the results to everyone who contributed to our research.

If you have any questions about this research, we would love to speak to you

We look forward to speaking to you soon.
