Medical robotics is a fast-growing field in the medical device industry. The surgical robotics segment is leading the market. The surgical robotics market can be segmented into capital equipment and consumable accessories. The robotic surgical system accessories occupy the majority of the market, driven by the demands of high-volume procedures.

Homecare medical devices help in improving patient health outcomes and add value to the health system by facilitating a shift from traditional hospital care. Homecare and community care companies have enhanced the convenience of delivery of health services to people in community care settings and at home.

Medical device wholesalers buy medical equipment and products directly from manufacturers in bulk quantities and sell the same to retail and induvial customers. They facilitate and streamline the procurement process by breaking down the bulk purchase for safely storing and efficiently distributing the products in smaller lots.

Plastics are the most widely used materials in medical devices and components. The demand for medical-grade plastics is increasing as the global medical device market continues to expand.

Medical devices play a key role in diagnosis, prevention, monitoring, prediction, prognosis and treatment of diseases. However, developing and manufacturing medical devices is a complex and multifaceted process.

Medical device distribution, a crucial component of the medical device supply chain, enables effective supply of medical devices to hospitals and other healthcare organisations.

The increasing investment in medical technology and the rising number of surgical and diagnostic procedures are driving the demand for advanced medical capital equipment globally.

Using coatings for the sterilisation of medical devices does not, at first glance, appear to be a tantalising topic. Perhaps it previously wasn’t, but with the Covid-19 pandemic, an accelerated advance in medical technology has emerged, and that is where things get interesting.

The increase in demand for wearable devices that measure various health parameters such as heart rate, oxygen levels, blood pressure and other vital signs is boosting the adoption of medical Internet of Things (IoT) solutions.

Digitally compatible medical devices are at risk of cyberattacks, which can interfere with how they operate, harm patient health or even lead to death. Medical devices are also increasingly utilising IoT technology and data sharing, which increases the attack surface for hackers.

Cloud computing provides a myriad of benefits to the medical devices space, including a cost-reduced approach towards patient-doctor communications, increasing reach between healthcare professionals and patients, and scope for medical research, to name a few. As the cloud is developing, cloud providers are becoming aware of security concerns surrounding the cloud and are making efforts to bolster cloud security.

The need for sustainability or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) in the medical device industry is growing to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing and supply chains.

The need for sustainability or environmental, social, and governance (ESG) in the medical device industry is growing to reduce the environmental impact of manufacturing and supply chains.

Artificial intelligence (AI) can vastly improve the development of medical devices and issues facing the sector. It can reduce product development delays, accelerate clinical trials, and address supply chain disruptions.

Designing and manufacturing medical devices is a complex process as the products not only need to be precise and user-friendly but also meet the medical industry’s regulatory requirements and deliver their intended functionality.

Embedded medical systems consist of hardware and software customised for specific functions in medical devices. These technologies allow patients’ health to be monitored and managed frequently each day. For example, sensors extract data on aspects of a patient’s health, such as their heart rate, and send the data to physicians wirelessly for analysis.

User interface includes all the physical elements of a medical device that enable interaction between the user such as doctors, nurses and patients, as well as the device itself.

Electronic components and power circuits form an integral part of medical devices. They are crucial to the performance of diverse functions and can range from something as simple as a switch to sophisticated implantable sensors.

Optical medical imaging technologies have innumerable applications in medical and clinical practices as they prevent exposing patients to harmful radiations, unlike conventional X-ray and radiology imaging.

Medical device components contract manufacturing has advanced with the growing medical devices market. Outsourcing to contract manufacturers allows medical device companies to focus on the key aspects of their business, streamline the supply chain, and monitor expenditure while high-tech innovation and technological advancement in the sector are increasing.
