Medical devices contract manufacturing involves taking the assistance of third-party companies to manufacture medical devices. Contract manufacturing of medical devices allows the companies to go for the production of devices based on latest technologies without deviating from their core activities. The medical device contract manufacturing allows the companies to focus on their core activities such as marketing of the product or device which in turn boosts the market growth. The market for medical device contract manufacturing is witnessing a huge increase owing to the benefits includes a reduction in overall cost and decrease in the time required for the product to enter the market. In addition, companies need not set up manufacturing units in different countries in order to expand their product line. Companies can fulfill the demands by getting their products manufactured through medical device contract manufacturers located in different regions. In this way, they can utilize their capital investment for their growth.
The global medical devices contract manufacturing market can be segmented on the basis of device type (Class I, II, and III devices), by product (raw materials, electronics, and finished goods), by application (orthopedic & spine, cardiovascular, radiology, and general medical devices), and service (prototype development, finished device manufacturing, assembly & packaging; and testing & regulatory support services) and by geography.
The medical device contract manufacturing market is being driven by the growing pressure on medical device original equipment manufacturers to reduce production costs and delay in the marketing of latest products. Also, rising preference for non-invasive surgical procedures propels the contract research manufacturing market of endoscopic systems and surgical instruments manufacturing. The absence of internal manufacturing potential drives the market among mid- to small-sized companies. Aging population provides the opportunities for contract manufacturing of many products like orthopedic implants and instruments. There is an increase in the number of aging population worldwide. As per the World Health Organization report, the geriatric population is expected to reach 1.5 billion by 2050; that can be around 16% of the total world population.
