Report Overview

The global medical component manufacturing market size was valued at USD 10.36 billion in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% from 2021 to 2030. Rising demand for medical devices owing to the prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases and increasing demand for healthcare services and smart devices, such as wearables, are projected to fuel the market growth over the forecast period. There has been a transformation in the methods of treatment and diagnosis with the rising use of wearables and other healthcare equipment at home. Clinicians and doctors receive intelligence from wearables and devices to prevent and monitor diseases and patients avoid unnecessary trips to hospitals.

U.S. medical component manufacturing market size, by process, 2018 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The U.S. is one of the leading markets for medical devices around the world. It is known for the latest technology and innovative products around the world. Investments in the R&D of such devices have more than doubled in recent decades. This is projected to push the market growth for medical component manufacturing over the coming years.

The presence of a large number of medical device companies drives the demand for components used in medical devices. Some of the states with a large number of medical device companies are New York, Florida, California, Illinois, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Georgia. The U.S. also holds a competitive edge in several sectors, including biotechnology, instrumentation, telecommunications, microelectronics, and software development, on which the market for medical component manufacturing relies.

Government policies and trade agreements such as NAFTA and TPP, rising healthcare expenditure, and increasing penetration of smart healthcare devices are projected to further push the market demand. As per the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the national healthcare expenditure in the country increased to USD 3.8 trillion in 2019-4.6% more than in 2018. As per the same resource, the national healthcare expenditure is expected to reach USD 6.2 trillion by 2028.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the demand for medical devices, thereby affecting the market growth. The healthcare industry witnessed a fall in elective healthcare procedures, many of which were postponed or canceled so that hospitals could focus on the treatment of COVID-19 patients. However, the demand for products such as personal protective equipment (PPE), ventilators, and diagnostic kits increased rapidly during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Process Insights

Plastic injection molding held the largest revenue share of over 65.0% in 2020. The plastic injection molding process involves the melting of plastics (thermoplastics/thermosetting polymers) to make them malleable. It is followed by injecting them into cavities at a certain pressure. These plastics are then cooled, and they solidify to obtain desired shapes. This process offers several advantages and is used for the production of components, medical devices, laboratory equipment, etc.

Advantages of the plastic injection molding process include the ability of the components manufactured using this process to meet regulatory standards and exact specifications of the healthcare industry. The plastic injection molding process is used to develop surgical equipment and parts; housings and casings for laboratory equipment; test tubes, beakers, and other containers; drug delivery equipment and components; and orthopedic products.

The 3D printing segment is projected to remain the fastest-growing segment and achieve double-digit growth over the forecast period. The 3D printing process is used to develop surgical instruments such as hemostats, needle drivers, scalpel handles, medical clamps, retractors, and forceps; customized body parts and prosthetics; orthopedic implants for hips, knees, and wrists; and equipment and instruments.

The forging segment was the second-largest segment in 2020. The forging process prevents wastage, which occurs during the machining process of workpieces that compromises their mechanical strength and results in the formation of sharp edges and burrs in them. Components produced using the forging process include prosthetic knee joints, respirator valves, leg braces, hip joint swivels, hospital bed parts, PET and MRI scanners, hip stems, hearing aid devices, dental implants, customized devices, etc.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of over 40.0% in 2020. Increasing investments in healthcare and rising demand for healthcare products in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico are expected to boost the demand for medical component manufacturing in the region. The aging population, along with the extended life expectancy, is projected to push the demand for medical devices and related products.

In the North American market, the U.S. accounted for the largest revenue share of over 85.0% in 2020 and is projected to maintain its lead over the forecast period. The presence of numerous medical device companies in the country is projected to attract significant demand for medical components. Some of the leading companies include GE Healthcare Technologies, Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, Stryker Corporation, St. Jude, Becton Dickinson, Beckman Coulter, and Baxter.

Global medical component manufacturing market share, by region, 2020 (%)

The European market is one of the largest in the world and attracts significant demand for medical products. The total healthcare expenditure in Europe was around USD 1.8 trillion as of 2019 and accounted for a share of nearly 8.3% in GDP. Out of total healthcare expenditure, the government held a share of 78%. Rising demand for dental and body contouring implants in the region is also anticipated to bolster the demand for medical components over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is home to seven of the world’s ten most populous countries and accounts for 60% of the global population. Thus, the region is likely to attract significant demand for healthcare products over the coming years. In addition, factors such as expanding the private healthcare sector, rising income levels, and government incentives for medical device companies are projected to boost the demand for medical devices in the region, thus benefiting the market growth.
