SCOPE AND FORMAT
This study looks at medical device coatings and surface treatments from the perspective of both the supply and demand side of the equation that is from coating manufacturers that supply the materials, the medical device companies that use it and the members of the healthcare community who influence purchases.
Consistent with the scope of the study, the format of this report is arranged to present its five-year forecasts as a series of tables. Each of those tables presents U.S. current dollar demand values for coatings and surface processes for 2012 and 2013, and the five-year period from 2014 through 2019. Separate sets of forecasts are presented for the:
Eight types of coatings and surface treatment technologies.
Nineteen healthcare areas that correspond to FDA medical device review panels.
United States, European Union, other developed nations and the rest of the world.
In addition to forecast tables, the report includes informational tables. These summarize FDA Freedom of Information act data about generic types of devices, their use within each healthcare area, and the regulatory pathway and burdens imposed upon them. Supplier detail includes the global distribution of production facilities, location and coating-related proprietary names. An appendix contains the abstract of major coating-related patents, including their initial assignees.
