COVID-19 Market Insights:

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the entire world to a stalemate. Several international businesses have come to a stand-still, with production and manufacturing capacities becoming limited or ceasing. This cessation of business is anticipated to have recessionary impacts on the world economic in the coming days. Supply-chains have become disrupted, owing to limited availability of transport. As a precautionary measure, employees have been encouraged to work from home, thus limiting output of key industries.

Until now, over 1.5 million people have been infected by the COVID-19 virus, with over one-fifth of the population succumbing to the disease. Particularly vulnerable patients are those with pre-existing chronic conditions such as heart disease, renal failure, cancer and diabetes.

Naturally, these patients require top priority care as the COVID-19 infection can create multiple complications in their bodies. Realizing this, the leading guidewire manufacturing companies have directed a major chunk of their research and funds in finding solutions for combating the coronavirus.

Abbott Laboratories, for instance, has received FDA approval for the fastest available molecular point-of-care test for the detection of COVID-19, delivering positive results in as little as five minutes. The company is ramping up its production of its ID NOW testing boxes, delivering 50,000 units on a daily basis.

Also, Terumo International has concluded that its production capacity has not been hindered due to procurement difficulties of components and raw materials, which includes guidewires. However, strict countermeasures such as restriction of movement between business locations, staggering work shift timings and work from home have been implemented.

To conclude, while guidewires production may be impacted by the pandemic, manufacturers are not poised to experience too many supply chain disruptions as they are constantly engaged in production and eradication measures.
