Challenge Statement: Our client was looking to understand the market dynamics and competitive landscape to push their existing contrast agents while launching new products across specific customer segments within ASEAN

EMeRG Approach: 

  • Using our proprietary HospeTrack database, in-depth segmentation of individual hospitals was conducted across Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam
  • Hospital segmentation was further refined to create need-based segmentation – based on radiology infrastructure, contrast agent usage, complexity of procedures, purchase behavior and patterns etc.
  • In-depth interviews were conducted with HOD Radiology, Radiology technicians, Cath lab technicians etc. to understand details around consumption and usage of contrast agents for X-ray, CT, MR and cath labs
  • Interviews with medical device distributors was conducted to understand the current market dynamics, pricing challenges, public sector sales, penetration of generic contrast agents etc.
  • In-depth market sizing by individual customer segments as well as propensity modelling of hospital segments that were likely to purchase contrast agents at a certain frequency and order volume was created
