Some of the key end-users of healthcare supply chain management are hospitals, clinics and physician offices, and diagnostic labs. Pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, distributors, logistics, and healthcare organizations are also key end-users of this market. The changing health of the people is a trend driving supply chain innovation. According to the CDC, half of the adult population in the U.S. has one or more chronic health conditions. This further helps in creating a more patient-centered supply chain that can be provided when and where the patients need it. Furthermore, according to Forbes, the Internet of Things is leading to increased connectivity and visibility throughout the supply chain, which is possible by closely monitoring inventories, thereby reducing healthcare costs.

Growing adoption of mobile-based healthcare supply chain management solutions among manufacturers and providers is expected to boost the industry growth over the forecast period. Mobile apps have become an essential part of supply chain management solutions. Supply chain management for logistic companies in developed as well as emerging countries has become to easier owing GPS-enabled mobile applications. These apps use mobile devices and sensors for tracking vehicles, thereby providing better visibility of the entire supply chain management. Furthermore, there are several healthcare supply chain management apps available. For instance, Curvo, a sourcing technology for implants and physician-preference items, is designed to enhance supply chain efficiency.

The adoption of cloud-based software solutions results in the participation of many end-users, which may result in a variety of new potential risks pertaining to data privacy and security. Growing concerns over security and data privacy are among the factors expected to hinder the growth of the market among end-users. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, in the U.S., every month about 1 million people were affected by data breaches in the healthcare sector in 2020. One of the most prominent cyberattacks was committed by a group backed by the Russian government in 2020. It affected various organizations and the U.S. federal government. The attackers exploited three major firms in the U.S.—SolarWinds, Microsoft, and VMware. A supply chain attack on Microsoft cloud services allowed attackers to breach the data of their users. Furthermore, the high cost of supply chain management solutions may hamper the industry's growth.

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 highlighted the loopholes in the healthcare supply chain. The failure of the supply chain during the pandemic put patients and healthcare providers at risk, which further forced the economy to shut down. Rising cases of COVID-19 led to a sudden rise in the demand for gloves, medical masks, sanitizers, oxygen cylinders, medicines, ventilators, and others, which led to an imbalance in the industry. However, this compelled the manufacturers and providers to adopt supply chain management solutions to streamline their processes. Implementation of these supply chain management solutions helped healthcare facilities overcome the issues of the supply chain. Many supply chain management providers temporarily allowed healthcare organizations to opt for their solutions for free. For instance, in March 2020, Jump Technologies temporarily opened its inventory management solutions for all healthcare facilities. Such initiatives were focused on helping hospitals maintain their supplies during the pandemic.
