Global Medical Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The size of the global medical devices market was valued at USD 443.8 billion in 2021. This value is further estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 4.9% from 2022 to 2027 and worth USD 591.34 billion by 2027 from USD 465.55 billion in 2022.


The rise in numerous health-related difficulties due to the prevalence of unhealthy lifestyles and a growing focus on digital gadgets due to their simplicity is majorly accelerating the global medical devices market growth.

Due to the ubiquity of remote monitoring, digital improvements, and increased investment rounds by the public and government agencies worldwide, the global medical devices market is expected to see significant growth during the forecast period. Fewer regulations on these technologies lead to virtual and novel medical equipment, boosting the global medical devices market. The rise in regional support for establishing and demand these devices and the world economy's slowing return to pre-pandemic levels.

In addition, with the recent trend of wearable medical devices gaining traction among a broader consumer base, the market is likely to fuel during the forecast period. Over the forecast period, leading market players' advanced models, the latest features, ideal prices, and rising marketing efforts moves the global medical devices market forward. Furthermore, 3D printing in manufacturing can aid in developing upgraded and high-performance surgical equipment such as hemostats and forceps, which is projected to drive further market expansion. Furthermore, 3D printing in the healthcare industry has significantly transformed the global medical device market. It facilitates the production of customized devices for patients because it allows for easy design adjustments without additional tools, which is projected to boost the market growth.

Furthermore, domestic manufacturing of critical medical devices is projected to reduce trade barriers while ensuring product quality and market stability. In addition, the increased frequency of chronic diseases, corresponding increases in disability-adjusted life years, technological developments in medical equipment, and a steady increase in the aging population are expected to expand the global medical devices market.


The potential of data breaches and crucial information hacking via these devices is predicted to hinder the global medical devices market expansion.


Y-O-Y rise in the incidence of chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes is expected to significantly offer lucrative growth opportunities to the global medical devices market. Around 10 million people died due to cancer in 2020, as per the statistics published by the WHO. In addition, according to International Diabetes Federation, an estimated 537 million people aged between 20 to 79 now have diabetes. Chronic diseases such as cancer and diabetes are rising due to a lack of physical activity, long working hours, and unhealthy eating habits. Furthermore, bad lifestyles and eating habits attract severe diseases, soon boosting the demand for medical devices. Moreover, the use of AI in medical devices such as remote patient monitoring devices, wearable medical devicesElectronic Health Records (EHR), and other similar examples is expected to accelerate the penetration of medical devices into consumers' daily lives.

In addition, using Big Data analytics to manage, access, analyze, and process new medical data to produce more effective medical devices is further anticipated to offer new growth possibilities to the market participants. The global medical devices market is expected to rise due to increased research and development (R&D) operations by leading companies to produce more advanced devices using artificial intelligence (AI), big data, and machine learning.


The potential loss of revenue due to delays in product launches and the additional costs paid due to demanding approval processes places pressure on new product development investments that are predicted to challenge the growth rate of the global medical devices market.

COVID-19 Impact on the global medical devices market:

COVID-19's global impact has been unprecedented and devastating, with medical device adoption levels falling across all areas due to the pandemic. Since the advent of COVID-19 in many nations, demand for medical supplies, in-vitro diagnostic instruments, and respiratory care devices has surged significantly. This need is predicted to remain to combat the pandemic and reduce the danger of infection emergence and transmission. To restrict the spread of COVID-19, the necessity to diagnose, treat and monitor patients without human interaction has increased, leading to more uses of medical technology that allows medical practitioners to treat their patients remotely. Artificial intelligence (AI) applications in human care, wearable medical equipment, and remote patient monitoring are instances of such technology. In addition, personal protective equipment (PPE) such as face shields and nasal swabs for COVID-19 testing are being produced by 3D printing companies such as Massachusetts-based Markforged and Formlabs.
