Medical device makers faced a productive but challenging year in 2011. They innovated existing lines, launched new devices and invested in R&D. But they also experienced funding cutbacks and new taxes and regulations. In this report, The Global Market for Medical Devices, 3rd. Edition, Kalorama Information analyzes the current device market in the United States, Europe, Asia and globally, profiles the key players and discusses trends important for market watchers to know.
The medical device market is vast -- everything from a large imaging system to a disposable item can be classified as a type of medical device -- but also provides opportunity for new entrants. While in dollar terms the pharmaceutical market is greater, the device market has more participants and is responsible for more orders and transactions. Throughout the past decade, Kalorama Information has covered many device markets in detail. Certain areas such as infusion pumps, patient monitoring and catheters have shown promising growth. Others have solid market leaders earning stable revenue.
