Global Medical Devices Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The size of the global medical devices market was valued at USD 488.36 billion in 2023. This value is further estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2024 to 2029 and will be worth USD 650.71 billion by 2029 from USD 512.28 billion in 2024.

A medical device can be an instrument, an implant, or a device used to diagnose, treat, or prevent disease or other medical conditions. Surgical instruments, artificial heart valves, pacemakers, joint replacements, diagnostic imaging equipment, such as X-rays and ultrasounds, and PPE, such as masks and gloves, are examples of medical devices. These devices play a vital role in treatment procedures and in saving patients' lives. Depending on the risk level they can showcase on the patients, these medical devices are classified into two types Class I medical devices and Class II medical devices. Class II devices are considered higher risk than Class I medical devices. Implantable pacemakers and prosthetic heart valves are examples of Class II medical devices, and bandages and examination gloves are examples of Class I devices. Medical devices must follow the regulatory authorities' instructions and be approved to get eligible for marketing and selling. Regulatory authorities such as the U.S. FDA strictly monitor and evaluate medical devices to approve them for commercialization.

MARKET DRIVERS

The growing patient population suffering from chronic diseases propels the global medical devices market growth. 

WHO says an estimated 41 million people die from chronic diseases every year. Approximately 71% of the deaths worldwide are linked to chronic diseases every year, and out of these, the majority of the deaths are due to diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, cancer, and diabetes. The chronic disease population has been growing significantly in the last few years. The trend is expected to grow further in the coming years due to the growing aging population and increasing adoption of sedentary lifestyles. The growing chronic disease patient population is expected to increase the need for medical devices to manage the growing disease burden. Medical devices are vital in managing chronic diseases such as CVD, cancer, and diabetes. For instance, medical devices such as glucose monitoring devices, insulin pumps, and inhalers are used aggressively to treat chronic diseases such as diabetes and respiratory diseases. Likewise, medical devices such as pacemakers, stents, and prosthetics are used to treat cardiovascular diseases.

Technological developments are further fuelling the growth rate of the global medical devices market. 

By using the latest technological developments, the manufacturers of medical devices have created manufactured medical devices that are cost-effective, efficient, accurate, and can provide improved patient outcomes. For instance, digital health technologies such as mHealth applications, telemedicine, and wearable medical devices have brought several changes to healthcare delivery in recent years. Using these developments, patients take treatment from the comfort of home by communicating with healthcare providers, and this has resulted in effective healthcare delivery at reduced healthcare costs. In addition, technological developments such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data, robotics, and others have helped the medical devices market to pose a healthy CAGR in recent years.

The growing healthcare expenditure is favoring the growth rate of the global medical devices market. 

According to the data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, U.S. healthcare expenditures are expected to reach USD 6.2 trillion by 2028. The growing aging population, increasing healthcare coverage, and rising number of technological developments in the medical devices industry are resulting in increasing healthcare expenditure and favoring the growth of the medical devices market. The growth in healthcare expenditure is leading to innovative solutions for patients to offer effective healthcare delivery.

In addition, factors such as the growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, the growing global aging population, the rising need for medical devices to address the growing burden of various diseases, and the increasing demand for home healthcare devices are propelling the medical devices market growth. Furthermore, an increasing number of initiatives and growing support by various governments in favor of medical devices, growing adoption of medical tourism in developing countries, and rising usage of wearable medical devices are promoting the growth rate of the medical devices market.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

High costs associated with medical devices are majorly hampering the global medical devices market growth.

Due to these costs, medical devices are unaffordable to many patients and small and medium-sized healthcare facilities, limiting the adoption and accessibility of medical devices in underdeveloped and developing countries. The stringent regulatory requirements and approval process of medical devices are further hindering the medical devices market growth. Issues associated with product recalls and safety concerns are impeding the growth of the medical devices market. Poor reimbursement policies for medical devices in some countries are diluting the growth rate of the overall market. The scarcity of skilled medical professionals in some countries is negatively impacting the growth of the medical devices market. Issues with the shortage of raw materials and supply chain disruptions for the manufacturing and distribution of medical devices are showcasing a negative impact on global market growth. Furthermore, the presence of alternative therapies to medical devices and difficulties in the adoption of advanced medical technologies are limiting the growth rate of the medical devices market.

Impact Of COVID-19 On the Global Medical Devices Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a mixed impact on the global medical devices market. The sudden surge in the number of people diagnosed with coronavirus worldwide has promoted the need for medical devices such as respiratory devices, ventilators, masks, PPE kits, and others. In addition, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the usage of digital health technologies such as telemedicine and remote patient monitoring has grown significantly. The growth rate of the medical devices market has seen an acceleration. On the other hand, during the peak days of COVID-19, priority has been given to elective surgical procedures; all non-essential surgical procedures were kept on hold, which negatively resulted in the companies that manufacture medical devices for essential surgical procedures. In addition, to curb the spread of the virus, many governments have announced lockdowns, travel bans, and temporary shutdowns of manufacturing plans, which resulted in supply chain disruption and reduced production of medical devices, hampering the market's growth rate. Likewise, COVID-19 had a mixed impact on the global medical devices market. However, considering the growing habituation towards the new normalization, uplifting of the restrictions, and reducing the impact of COVID-19, the global medical devices market is anticipated to pose significant growth during the forecast period.
