INSIGHTS BY DEVICES
Class II medical devices are expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period, expecting to reach a revenue of $76 billion by 2026. They include complex equipment and pose a higher risk as they are likely to have sustained contact with the internal organs of the patient. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of chronic illness has increased the demand for Class II devices. Evolving digital technology is empowering monitoring devices, thereby effectively influencing the operational cost. Hence, the demand for these medical devices is likely to grow in the upcoming years.
Class I medical devices are commonly regulated by the FDA, constituting 47% of the approved equipment in the market. They are the fastest and highly promoted as they are low-risk products and have rarely critical to life-supporting care applications. The growth in hospitalization rates has increased the demand for these devices. Elderly and patients with chronic conditions have extended stay in hospitals, which influence the application of medical equipment. These factors are likely to enhance the consumption of Class I devices in healthcare settings.
INSIGHTS BY PRODUCTS
Electronics manufacturing services (EMS) accounted for the highest share of the global medical device contract manufacturing market in 2020. The increasing demand for affordable medical devices, a convergence of electronics, and rising cost pressures have bolstered the participation of EMS providers in the last few years. The growing reliance of medical device OEMs on EMS companies is expected to boost the growth of the market. An increase in personalized medicine, technological innovations, and stringent regulatory requirements have increased collaborations between OEMs and EMS providers, which is contributing the market growth. With product designing becoming more complex than before, EMS providers are skillful at refreshing older designs and updating electronic design and content within an existing medical device design. This tends to lower cost and obsolescence challenges associated with long product lifecycles.
INSIGHTS BY SERVICES
Product manufacturing and assembly services are the most widely applied solutions for medical devices. Outsourcing the manufacture and assembly of medical devices has greatly helped OEMs to manage costs, save time and effort. These services are growing due to several advantages, which include obtaining specialized expertise, increasing time to market, leveraging a strong supply chain, solve capacity limitations. Services offered through contract manufacturing can resolve quality standards and regulatory compliance, especially in the healthcare and environmental segments.
The need to reduce costs, prevent errors, improve and control processes is increasing the demand for quality management services. In 2020, the packaging and sterilization services segment accounted for a share of 17% for the global medical device contract manufacturing market. Packaging and sterilization are rapidly expanding markets in the medical device industry. They are critical to ensure that the equipment are safe to use, contamination-free, and can withstand a broad range of shipping and storage conditions.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
North America is expected to account for the highest revenue in the medical device contract manufacturing market share. High demand for medical device development and contract manufacturing in the region due to the presence of major contract manufacturing companies with enhanced manufacturing capabilities is a major factor, contributing to the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing population density and the prevalence of chronic diseases, increased usage of healthcare equipment, the high demand for technological advancements in healthcare products, growing investment and research for medical devices, and increased spending on healthcare are other factors influencing the market growth. The presence of major key vendors such as Jabil and Sanmina in North America is also responsible for the highest revenue share.
INSIGHTS BY VENDORS
Flex, TE Connectivity, Sanmina, Jabil, Celestica, Plexus, and Tecomet are the key medical device companies offering a diverse range of contract manufacturing services. Current-generation service providers have been focusing on strengthening in-house capabilities to offer a wider range of services to OEMs, ranging from product design to distribution and marketing, along with regulatory assistance. As the medical device industry is among the most highly regulated industries, the demand for core competencies, such as design and engineering, prototype development, and high-volume manufacturing is likely to continue in the coming years as well. This continuous demand will drive OEMs to outsource several parts of their product development and manufacturing operations to capable CMOs. Amidst the intense competition and major players, the availability of advanced tools and technologies to manufacturing a range of medical devices is an important differentiating factor.
