Increasing popularity of diagnostic imaging devices, an emerging segment in the healthcare sector, is providing major opportunities for both computer manufacturers and software firms. Reports in this category of devices study the market for magnetic resonance imaging systems, computed tomography devices, positron emission tomography devices, etc. Further, drug delivery technologies include oral, inhalation, transdermal, and parenteral routes of drug administration. The providers of upcoming drug delivery technologies are focusing on improving efficacy and safety of their devices for boosting their sales. Minimally invasive and noninvasive surgical devices are considered among the most significant developments in the healthcare sector. The market for various minimally invasive and noninvasive devices is set to evolve due to the rising demand for painless treatment; various companies, especially new entrants from developing countries, are coming up with cutting-edge technologies such as drug-eluting stents and capsule endoscopy. The market for mobility aid technologies is also growing rapidly with the increased life expectancy and surging geriatric population in the world.
The in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests include medical devices (instruments, reagents, and systems) designed to provide medical information necessary for the diagnosis of diseases or disorders. IVDs range from relatively portable near-patient testing kits to large complex automated laboratory systems. Market for monitoring devices entails an array of products ranging from heart-rate meters to glucose monitors, and cancer-detecting devices. Early disease detection and greater patient comfort, compared to traditional monitoring procedures, are among the major factors boosting the business growth of noninvasive monitoring device providers. Reports on therapeutic devices cover dental equipment, drug and device combination, infusion therapy, respiratory therapy, neurostimulators, and eye-related surgical technologies. The market research reports by The Insight Partners also analyze the upcoming and newer devices for the treatment of chronic heart failure and depression, and surgically implanted biomaterials, i.e., bioimplants, used to replace damaged tissues in the human body.
Compared to companies in industries such as telecommunications, automobiles, and defense, the medical devices industry players globally invest a higher percentage of their yearly revenues in R&D for the continuous innovation and improvement of existing technologies, which highlights the competitive nature of the industry. Partnerships among manufacturers have also led to advances in the stent technologies, robotic assistance, neurostimulators, and implantable wearable medical devices. Ongoing research to come up with innovative medical devices for the treatment and diagnosis, combined with a rise in patients’ life expectancy and ageing population worldwide, is providing impetus for the expansion of the medical device industry. Our reports analyze and forecast the revenues and provide comprehensive information on the factors governing market growth in medical devices industry.
