Medical Device Contract Manufacturing Market Insights

The medical device contract manufacturing market is set to embark on an impressive growth trajectory, expanding at a CAGR of 11.3% during the forecast period (2020-2026). With rapid expansion of the healthcare industry, practitioners are increasingly adopting advanced surgical options such as minimally invasive procedures.

This has prompted original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to take strategic steps to exploit the scenario and develop advanced devices. A number of mergers and acquisitions have occurred in this respect.

For instance, Becton & Dickinson acquired C.R Bard while Hologic Inc. purchased Cynosure in 2017. Such developments have significantly contributed to the medical device contract manufacturing market growth.

The coronavirus pandemic, however, has posed potent challenges to the growth of the medical device contract manufacturing market. As production cycles have halted due to strict social distancing measures, a wide gap has been generated in the demand-supply equation.

Manufacturing units are unable to produce adequate output, leading to acute shortages. As healthcare settings reorient their priorities, the demand for medical equipment for elective procedures has fallen. However, analysts are hopeful that advanced medical devices will prove useful in diagnosing COVID-19 infections, thus keeping growth speculations positive.

Medical Device Contract Manufacturing Market: Technological Insights

Manufacturers are employing advanced technologies to address the growing need for medical devices across the globe. Miniaturization trend has compelled OEMs and contract manufacturers to invent compact devices for minimally invasive procedures.

These devices are smaller, flexible, less expensive, less power-intensive and easier to transport. Moreover, minimally invasive surgeries employ robotics and endoscopic techniques.

3D-printing is emerging as a potential technological advancement in the medical device contract manufacturing industry. The orthopedic devices segment especially presents immense opportunities for 3D-printing systems. 3D-printers are highly useful in designing prosthetics, metal, polymeric & bio-implants and patient specific jigs.

Medical Device Contract Manufacturing Market: Application Insights

Medical device contract manufacturing for orthopedic treatment continues to influence growth strategies of market players and accounts for over one-fourth of the total revenue. Growing application in manufacturing of cardiovascular devices is likely to result in increased market share.

Increasing geriatric population with conditions such as arthritis and rising need for custom devices are anticipated to spur the entry of new players specifically focused on the orthopedic devices.

Strong focus on the manufacturing of cardiovascular devices is attributed to increasing fatalities arising out of cardiac problems and consequent rise in demand for guidewires, stents, catheters and implantable devices.
