Arlington, VA, United States, 2014/12/10 - This is a good sign for RMSR Medical Sales Training as most medium to smaller companies do outsource their training and look to hire educated and certified medical sales reps - MedicalSalesCareer.com.
The global medical device industry has grown significantly over the last five years, and it is projected to reach approximately $352 billion by 2019 with a compound annual growth rate of 7.1 percent (2014-2019) To serve the rapidly expanding industry, the NAMSR (National Association of Medical Sales Representatives) has developed the RMSR Medical Sales Training to aid in educating medical sales reps to meet industry knowledge pre-requisites. The RMSR has provided medical training solutions to medical device manufacturers and the industry since 2005 to enhance the efficiency of getting knowledgeable reps into a sales territory efficiently. The RMSR medical sales training also has been proven to increase sales results and also ensure regulatory compliance.
“The U.S. medical device market is currently a $121 billion industry the largest in the world. There are more than 6,500 medical device companies in the U.S. where the RMSR helps both entry level sales rep applicants and medical employers with sales training.” says Eric Reinhard, Training Director, at the NAMSR. With the RMSR Training being available online and enrollment available to applicants seeking to enter the industry, these factors lead to an expected to growth of 26% of RMSR graduates in 2015.
In a recent survey among medical device / equipment companies nearly 85% of respondents are optimistic about their own company prospects in 2015 compared to about 75% of firms expecting a good year for the industry as a whole. A similar 10-percentage-point gap occurred in our 2014 survey results. "Very positive" responses came mostly from firms with fewer than 50 employees, while more mid-sized and large firms took "somewhat positive" outlooks. This could be due to increasing pricing pressures being placed on larger firms. “This is a good sign for our RMSR Training as most medium to smaller companies do outsource their training and look to hire educated and certified sales reps.” Says Eric Reinhard, NAMSR.
The market trends for most growth includes the below medical products:
Ultrasonic scanning devices
Other electro-diagnostic devices
Surgical and medical sterilizers
Computed tomography devices
Other fracture and orthopedic devices
Medical X-ray devices
Dental X-ray devices
Tubular metal needles and needles for sutures
Ophthalmic instruments and devices
“One of the challenges for medical manufacturers is implementing efficient medical sales training systems that not only support sustainability goals, but improve technical communication with healthcare professionals,” says Reinhard. “The educational framework provided by the RMSR program will give medical device manufacturers a leg up on the competition technologically and operationally,” adds Reinhard.
