What kind of medical device is developed and has the most market prospect?


Nov 16,2020



According to statistics, the medical device market in Asia only accounts for 15% of the total sales of the international medical device market. Although it is relatively small, the future medical device market has huge room for development and it is worth looking forward to. Well. What kind of medical device products developed and produced in Asian countries have the most market prospects?

According to statistics released by the United Nations, the population of Asian countries accounted for approximately 60% of the global population in 2013, but the medical device market in Asia only accounted for 15% of the total sales of the international medical device market. With the gradual aging of the population in major countries, the Asian medical device industry and market will usher in huge room for development.

So, for those Asian countries that are approaching the aging society in Europe and America, especially the countries and regions that have entered the aging stage such as China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, what kind of medical device products are the most Have market prospects? This is a major issue that the industry is very concerned about. Because this is related to the future and destiny of the medical device industry. According to relevant investigations, the author summarizes as follows:

Miniaturized medical equipment

Today, when medical methods such as "interventional therapy" are becoming more and more popular, the medical sector is increasingly calling for the miniaturization of medical devices. The maturity of digital technology has laid the foundation for the production of miniaturized electronic medical devices. The most famous example is the "swallowable capsule digestive tract endoscope" and other new electronic medical devices. For another example, in recent years, foreign manufacturers have developed a "bracelet-type multifunctional electronic diagnostic instrument" that can be worn on the wrist. It can be used to measure blood sugar, blood pressure, heart rate and other important vital indexes. Such new products have been launched as soon as they are launched. Welcomed by the vast number of elderly consumers.

"zero defect" products

For implantable medical device products, especially cardiac pacemakers, insulin pumps and implantable electrodes, the quality requirements must be absolutely reliable "zero defect products", because even 1% of these products The defect rate (such as electronic coil short circuit, etc.) will cause fatal consequences. Popular electronic diagnostic instruments are also "zero defect" products. For example, common products such as blood glucose meters and sphygmomanometers will mislead patients if they display incorrect numbers, causing them to lose the opportunity to go to the hospital and receive timely treatment from doctors.

Long life battery

At present, many medical equipment products on the market use batteries as power sources, and most batteries have the problem of too short power supply time, so patients must frequently replace batteries, which is very troublesome. In response to this problem, developed countries in Europe and the United States have developed new long-life rechargeable batteries that can be used for up to 10 years, eliminating the trouble of frequent battery replacement. The more encouraging good news is that a European company has developed a "life heat source battery" that does not need to be recharged, which cleverly uses the heat emitted by the human body as energy and converts it into electrical energy to be stored in the battery for medical equipment. use. This new type of battery with a small body is most suitable for various wearable medical equipment products, which can save consumers the trouble of frequently replacing batteries.

performance upgrade products

At present, there is room for upgrading many medical device products on the market. For example, B-ultrasound is one of the commonly used diagnostic instruments in primary hospitals or clinics. According to Western researchers, only a small amount of money is needed to install a chip in the B-ultrasound machine, and the visceral diagnosis results of patients in the B-ultrasound room can be wirelessly transmitted to the attending doctor's office via WIFI (or the local area network in the hospital). On the computer screen, the doctor can understand the patient’s specific condition at the first time and make an early diagnosis.

This can greatly save the doctor's time. The existing electronic cochlear and other implantable electronic medical device products also have room for upgrading. For example, upgrading the electronic cochlear circuit can enable deaf patients to have a better hearing range. Upgrading of electronic medical equipment products, including electronic hearing aids, which have a huge sales volume, will enable them to have more functions and greatly improve the quality of life of patients.
