Aurum Medical raises its rating
According to the results of the analysis of purchases of medical equipment and medical products for 9 months in 2019-2021, Aurum entered the top 10, taking 6th place in the list of suppliers of medical equipment.
In general, for 9 months of 2021, state customers purchased medical equipment and medical products worth 347.5 billion rubles. Compared to the same period in 2020, the volume of purchases decreased by 14%. Last year, medical equipment was purchased not only by medical institutions — contactless thermometers and air disinfectants were purchased by everyone. Then the demand for them decreased, as well as for devices for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) and artificial lung ventilation (ventilator). In 2021, medical institutions almost returned to the usual nomenclature of purchases.
There are many not only customers, but also suppliers in the public procurement market of medical equipment and medical products. In January—September 2021, 14.1 thousand companies and individual entrepreneurs (about 4 thousand sole proprietors) supplied goods for the needs of the state order. Medicines are supplied by much fewer companies — according to AlphaRM, about 1.5 thousand legal entities (sole proprietors do not supply medicines).
In the presence of such competition, it is not easy to get among the largest suppliers. Manufacturers themselves who have signed large contracts often get to the top.
