Medical devices offer several advantages to patients by helping health care providers treat and diagnose patients and assisting patients in improving their quality of life. Rising geriatric population, the growing prevalence of chronic conditions, along with growth in surgical procedures, and complex surgeries are projected to boost the global medical devices market during the forecast period.
The rising interest of medical technology companies for the investment in the R&D of new generation medical devices, and green signal by regulatory authorities for their approval are likely to boost the medical device industry in the forecast period of 2018-2025. For instance, as per USFDA database, there were around 27 and 54 new medical devices cleared and approved by the FDA in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Technological advancements and rising demand for innovative therapies to overcome unmet needs in the healthcare area considered to be another factor supporting growth in medical device market during the forecast period.
"In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Devices (IVD) to Emerge as Most Attractive Device Type"
In vitro diagnostics devices used to detect diseases or other conditions, and can be used to monitor a person’s overall health to help cure, treat, or prevent diseases. IVD segment accounted for a market share of 12.9% in 2018. The efficient and precise testing of diseases such as diabetes, malaria, HIV/AIDS, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and cancer, are some of the factors driving the segment. For instance, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that in 2017, an estimated 47% of new infections of HIV/AIDS occurred among key populations and their partners. Some of the factors which limit the growth of the IVD segment includes the due approval from the regulatory authorities, which are subject to stringent tests might hamper and delay the growth of the market.
In terms of end user, the hospitals & ambulatory surgical centers segment dominated the global medical devices market in 2018. Developing healthcare infrastructure, rising healthcare expenditures, increasing emphasis on better patient outcomes, and lucrative reimbursement policies are expected to drive the hospitals & ambulatory surgical centers segment during the forecast period.
"Evolving Healthcare Infrastructure and Faster Adoption of Novel Medical Technologies to Boost Market in Asia Pacific"
North America was valued at USD 169.3 Bn in 2018 and is anticipated to hold a significant share in the global medical devices market during the forecast period. Medical device market growth witnessed in the region is likely to be driven by the well-developed healthcare infrastructure and faster adoption of new medical technologies. Asia Pacific, on the other hand, is an emerging market, exhibiting high growth potential due to increasing per capita income, increasing aging population, increasing disease awareness and improving health infrastructure.
