(PharmaNewsWire.Com, January 15, 2022 ) Medical Device Market size is estimated to reach $516.7 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 5.81% over 2021-2026. Medical devices are crucial in the delivery of a variety of health-care services. Medical devices, broadly defined, are objects that are neither absorbed or metabolized by the body and are used for diagnosis, cure, mitigation, therapy, or prevention of disease. Medical gadgets include items like prostheses, biomedical engineering, disposable gloves, medical thermometers, in vitro diagnostics, and X-ray equipment, among others. They are distinct from medications in that they have a physical or mechanical impact on the body, or they are used to assess (or monitor) the body and its processes. As a result, the medical device sector is an integral part of the broader health-care system, and it plays a vital role in creating new medical technology that may help doctors diagnose and treat illnesses better, which is also boosting industry growth. During the forecast period 2021-2026, market expansion is poised to be fueled by medical device businesses, whether large and small, which is to play a role in the creation of innovative medical equipment. Small medical device businesses are largely focused on the development of novel medical technology, and their work is generally strictly concentrated on a single therapeutic area. However, the high initial capital investment and the requirement for high-quality compliance of these medical devices in a vast and heterogeneous market is new challenge in the front of Medical Device Market.
Medical Device Segment Analysis – By Device Type
The Medical Device Market based on device type can be further segmented into Orthopedic Devices, Cardiovascular Devices, Diagnostic Imaging, IVD, Diabetes Care, Ophthalmic Devices, Dental, Nephrology, and Others. The cardiovascular devices segment is the major segment generating revenue in 2020. This can be attributed to the fact that there is a growing prevalence and impact of cardiovascular diseases which were posing multiple challenges to the healthcare systems and professionals. Furthermore, with the introduction of cardiovascular stents and its rapid evolution from stainless steel towards novel biodegradable devices are driving the market.
On the other hand, the orthopedic devices segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 6.5% for the period 2021-2026. The orthopedic device market is poised to outgrow with the escalating numbers for arthritis and osteoporosis and consistently rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries for the globally rising geriatric population. Also, there are growing prevalence’s of various bone related infirmities which requires joint reconstruction. All these surging factors requires smart medical procedures, customized implants, etc. which altogether in a way portrays to cater the market growth.
The Medical Device Market based on application can be further segmented into Medical Imaging, Remote Monitoring, Wearable, Self-Diagnosis, and Preventive Care, Implants, Wound Care and Surgery, and Others. The medical imaging is to hold the market share owing to the presence of an accurate and an efficient medical imaging system technologies both in the developed and growing economies. But with the high disease burden and up surge in technological advancements such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), etc. there is a revolution in the medical imaging industry which has led to the growth of the segment holding the major segmental share.
On the contrary, the self-diagnosis and preventive care segment is forecasted to register the fastest CAGR of 7.7% over 2021-2026. This is mainly owing to the fact that diagnosis becomes much easier as these kits claim to diagnose from prostate cancer to Alzheimer disease and menopause and hence, appealing to many. Furthermore, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) diagnostic apps soaring high in recent years, many consumers are inclining towards the home monitoring and portable instruments that are able self-diagnose. All these are to trigger to the growth of the self-diagnosis segment in the forecast period of 2021-2026.
Medical Device Segment Analysis – By Geography
North America dominated the Medical Device Market with major share of 45.2% in 2020. North America is the world's top producer of medical devices followed by the presence of well-developed medical infrastructure. Furthermore, with the adoption of various novel technologies and its continuous developments also pose an active reason to its growth. Apart from these, the region has also seen a surge up in the cases for multiple chronic illness especially amongst the geriatric population which has also in a way enhance the market share and hence its growth.
However, Asia Pacific is estimated to outpace all the regions by clocking the highest CAGR of 7.85% during the forecast period 2021-2026 owing to the fact that Asian countries such as Japan, China, and India are considered as the regions offering largest contract manufacturing of medical devices by the developed ones, thereby offering significant potential growth in the Medical Device industry. Apart from this, the region is also considered to be amongst the fastest growing economies followed by the increase in focus by the market players to expand its direct presence in these countries owing to the availability of raw materials at a low cost which is also to aid to the regional market growth.
Medical Device Market Drivers
Increasing Technological Advancement in Medical Devices
The significant driver boosting the Medical Device Market during the projected period 2021-2026 is technological advancements. The demand for wearable medical equipment has risen as a result of the corona virus pandemic, and in vitro diagnostic tests have also become more important as the focus shifts to no-human-contact therapies.
