Modern Medicine, With All The Gadgets

The medical device industry manufactures a wide range of products, including relatively simple conventional products like syringes as well as advanced devices like implantable pacemakers. The industry is primarily driven by big players which contribute roughly half of the $370 billion in sales seen globally each year.[1] In the future, subsectors like diagnostics, surgery, critical care and ophthalmic and cardiovascular products, are expected to continue the growth momentum. In 2013, the industry was sparked by further product innovation and a slew of mergers: Companies spent more than $10.5 billion on research and development[2], while 283 companies were targeted in acquisitions[3]. Now, with a 2.3% excise tax as part of the Affordable Healthcare Act impacting the profitability of US sales, many US companies may target the fast-growing middle class consumers in emerging markets and Europe.
