Medical Devices

Industry Overview:

In the last thousand years, life expectancy has tripled; in just the last hundred years, life expectancy has more than doubled. Many of the marvels of modern medicine can be directly attributed to medical devices; from small devices such as latex gloves and tongue depressors that help keep healthcare sanitary, to MRI machines and EKGs that assist in diagnosis, to pacemakers and insulin pumps that allow patients to manage chronic illnesses.

Technology continues to advance in leaps and bounds, and these technological advances merge with the medical industry to create a need for state-of-the-art devices. The healthcare market continues to shift, with nearly a third of all current healthcare consumption being done by the elderly, an ever-rising demographic as life expectancy continues to rise. By far, the United States has the largest market for medical devices, with more than a 40% share.
