The medical device is utilized for medical purposes such as diagnosis, monitoring, prevention, and treatment of diseases and injuries. Medical devices offer several benefits by helping patients overcome sickness or diseases, and improving their quality of life. The difference between medical devices and everyday devices is their intended use. According to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), medical devices are classified as Class I, Class II, and Class III.

Class I and II are subjected to the least regulatory control and require special labeling. Class III are those which support or sustain human life. It includes a pulse generator, external defibrillators, and an endosseous implant. The medical device includes establishments that manufacture medical equipment or devices such as in-vitro diagnostic devices, diagnostic imaging equipment, dental equipment and supplies, ophthalmic devices, cardiovascular devices, hospital supplies, and other medical devices.

The coronavirus outbreak is disrupting supply chains all around the world with the most aggravating effect on the medical devices market. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the production scenario globally, it has changed the business environment for numerous organizations across the globe. Most companies have extended their production capacity to meet the increasing demand for essential supplies. Covid-19 severely impacted the overall medical devices market around the world, which directly influenced hospital capacities and the ability of patients to seek care for a number of diseases.

 According to the World Health Organization (WHO), during COVID-19 over 28 million elective surgeries across the globe were cancelled, whilst 38% of global cancer surgeries were postponed. The coronavirus pandemic caused an unprecedented surge in the demand for medical products. The supply chain for COVID-19-relevant medical devices, such as personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and testing supplies and equipment, was unprepared to satisfy higher demand.

There is a growing prevalence of chronic disorders, including diabetes, cancer, and other infectious diseases, owing to the adoption of sedentary lifestyles and other factors. Also, healthcare agencies in various countries are focusing on increasing the diagnosis and treatment rates through the growing number of awareness programs. With the rising prevalence and awareness of such conditions among the population, the patient population requiring diagnostic procedures and tests is also increasing.

 For instance, according to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), an estimated 537 million people in 2021 suffered from diabetes, which is projected to rise to 643 million by 2030 and 783 million by 2045. Similarly, according to the American Cancer Society, the estimated number of new cancer cases in 2021 was 1.9 million.

 Also, a rapid rise in the geriatric population is increasing the demand for ophthalmic and orthopedic procedures due to the increasing incidence of impaired vision and joint fractures in the elderly population.  For instance, according to 2021 data published by the Osteoarthritis Action Alliance, the annual incidence of knee osteoarthritis is highest between the age group of 45-65 years, and 45% of the people with osteoarthritis are aged 65 or above.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

The rising prevalence of chronic medical conditions and the treatment of patients suffering from these diseases is exerting huge pressure on the healthcare systems of various countries. This has led to a significant rise in the economic burden of treating these diseases globally. The overall costs of treating a patient in a hospital inpatient setting are significantly higher, and longer hospital stays are associated with a higher economic burden.

  For instance, according to a 2021 article published by the American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC), in a recent randomized trial evaluating patients treated in a hospital setting and patients treated in a hospital-at-home setting, there was a 19% cost reduction in home care management. Due to the increasing economic burden and rising population aged above 60, there is a paradigm shift of preference toward home healthcare services among the population.

 Additionally, with increasing efforts of key players and healthcare agencies to develop and launch new and easy-to-use medical equipment, such as portable and wearable devices for the treatment of chronic diseases, the adoption of home healthcare services is rapidly rising in developed countries.


  • Increasing research and development investment

Increasing investment in research and development activity by medical technology companies due to the rising prevalence of chronic disease and easy approval process for those devices by the regulatory authorities are expected to propel the medical devices market growth over the upcoming years. According to the article published in Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS), the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) approved or authorized 13 devices in the year 2021. Additionally, the increasing spending on R&D by the pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical, and medical devices companies is further supplementing the growth of the medical devices industry during the forecast period
