Medical Device Contract Manufacturing Market - Snapshot

Over the past few years, the pharmaceutical and medical device industry has seen a significant reduction in new product development and approvals due to the global financial crisis. To remedy this situation, the use of business process outsourcing services has proven to be an effective way of minimizing operational, management, and infrastructure costs. The global medical device contract manufacturing market was valued at US$ 47.5 Bn in 2017. It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 10.9% from 2018 to 2026. The in-vitro diagnostic medical devices segment dominates the global market. Rise in the prevalence of chronic diseases, technological advancements, increase in patient awareness and health care expenditure, and rise in the need for the diagnosis of complex diseases are major factors driving the market. The highly fragmented nature of the medical device contract manufacturing market has prompted market players to shift their focus toward relatively niche segments such as minimally access surgical instruments.
