The medical devices market size was accounted at US$ 447.63 billion in 2019 and expected to surpass around US$ 671.49 billion by 2027, with CAGR of 5.2% from 2020 to 2027.
Increasing investment in Research & Development (R&D) activity by medical technology companies for the development of new and advanced medical devices and easy approval for those devices by the regulatory authorities expected to impel the market growth fro medical devices over the upcoming years. For instance, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) database, there were nearly 54 and 27 new medical devices approved and cleared by the institute in the year 2018 and 2017 respectively. Increasing demand for innovative therapies along with the technological advancements in the medical devices to overcome the unmet requirements in the healthcare sector considered as the prime factor supporting the growth of medical devices during the forthcoming years.
However, data security threat may hamper the market growth for medical devices as internet connection is required for transferring patient’s data from remote devices to the physician. Hence, this increases threat for data security. Rising trend for connected devices makes them attractive and thus increases the risk for data breaches or hacks. For instance, in March 2020, critical patient’s data including medical questionnaires, copies of driving license, passport, and national insurance number were leaked for over 2,300 patients of Hammersmith Medicines Research. The research firm was carrying out trials for COVID-19 vaccine on these patients
In Vitro Diagnostics (IVD) devices are used for the diagnosis of disease or conditions that include an analysis over the state of health for the purpose to mitigate, cure, treat, or prevent disease. These devices are largely used to collect, prepare, and examine the specimen sample collected from the patient’s body. Hence, increasing prevalence of chronic disease and need for precise and efficient testing kit for diseases such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, and cancer boosts the demand for IVD devices. For instance, in 2017, the World Health Organization (WHO) revealed that around 47% of new HIV cases were detected across the globe. In support of the above factors, the IVD segment accounted for a value share of nearly 13% in the year 2019.
End User Insights
