According to the USA Today news article, the number of fatal car crashes consistently increased from 36,835 in 2018 to an estimated 42,795 in 2022 within the U.S.

U.S. Medical Device Manufacturers market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic, which is now an endemic in major regions and countries had a marginally negative impact on few of the U.S. medical device manufacturers industries. According to Stryker’s financial report in 2020, the company witnessed a marginal downfall in revenues, nearly 3.58% from its 2019 sales. Orthopedic companies witnessed revenue losses due to shutdowns related to elective procedures. Furthermore, another leading cardiovascular firm, Medtronic, reported a decline in revenues by nearly USD 1.3 billion in fiscal year 2020. However, the pandemic had a positive impact on the drug delivery devices industry due to the medical necessities facilitated by COVID-19 complications.

The U.S. medical device manufacturers market is expected to witness significant growth due to the increasing geographic reach of market players and divestiture from existing businesses. Expanding into new geographic areas via acquisitions and collaborations allows manufacturers to tap into diverse markets, reach a broader customer base, and foster innovation. For instance, in February 2023, Abbott acquired Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. (CSI) as a part of its strategic expansion, which brought two major players in the key cardiovascular device industry. The equity value of the acquisition was estimated at USD 890 million.

Furthermore, in July 2023, 3M invested USD 468 million to expand its healthcare facility in Brookings, South Dakota, to broaden its geographic presence. This move suggested an intent to cater to the healthcare demands of the region, potentially introducing new medical devices or enhancing existing ones. In addition, certain players divested from their current businesses to enhance their position in other industries. For instance, in May 2023, Baxter International, Inc., a MedTech player, entered into a definitive agreement to sell its BioPharma Solutions (BPS) business to Advent International and Warburg Pincus. The cash transaction was valued at USD 4.25 billion, with estimated net after-tax proceeds of about USD 3.4 billion.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

Market growth stage is high, and pace of the market growth is moderately-accelerating. The medical device market is characterized by a high degree of innovation owing to the rapid technological advancements driven by factors such as smart devices, increased use of AI & machine learning for diagnostics, growth in wearable medical technology, greater focus on cybersecurity for connected devices, and ongoing development of telehealth solutions which seamlessly integrates digital healthcare for better patient outcomes and accessibility.

The market is also characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the leading and emerging players. This is due to several factors, including the desire to gain access to newer technologies that either address newer indications or grow their portfolio in newer geographies. For instance, in 2023, Eli Lily and Company acquired Sigilon Therapeutics, Inc. to expand its diabetes cell therapy research and development.

U.S. Medical Device Manufacturers Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is subjected to increasing regulatory scrutiny. Furthermore, the U.S. has one of the world’s most exhaustive medical device regulatory bodies and policies, which creates hurdles for market players while securing patient’s interests. Manufacturers must obtain FDA approval before marketing a new medical device. Class III devices, representing the highest risk, require Premarket Approval (PMA), involving a rigorous review of safety and effectiveness. Class II devices may undergo the 510(k)-clearance process, demonstrating substantial equivalence to a legally marketed device.

There are a limited number of direct product substitutes for medical devices for specific uses. Specialized medical devices with unique functionalities restrict the availability of direct substitutes. Furthermore, high switching costs and the critical nature of medical devices contribute to a diminished threat from substitute products.

End-user concentration is a key factor in the market. Since there are a number of end-user players that drive demand for medical devices. Buyers, including healthcare facilities, hold moderate power, which drives the need for high-quality and innovative devices. However, the high concentration of buyers in the medical device manufacturers market, coupled with their reliance on specialized devices, limits their ability to exert excessive bargaining pressure.

Application Insights

The others segment led the market and accounted for 39.07% of the revenue in 2023. The segment primarily comprises devices used in IVD diagnostics, medical imaging, dental, ear-nose-and-throat (ENT), wound-care, and general surgery. According to an article by Midwestern University Clinics, over 36 million U.S. citizens are currently edentulous, and an additional 120 million are missing at least one tooth. Projections for the next 15 years anticipate a substantial increase in prevalence, with over 200 million individuals predicted to experience partial tooth loss in the country. This emphasizes the relevance of dental devices within the market. Furthermore, the ENT devices segment is driven by the increasing demand for advanced solutions in otolaryngology. Innovations & advancements are expected to enhance diagnostic precision and therapeutic interventions for ENT conditions.

U.S. Medical Device Manufacturers market share and size, 2023

Cardiology devices is expected to register fastest-CAGR of 7.7% over the forecast period. Heart diseases are one of the leading cause of mortality in the U.S. According to a CDC article published in May 2023, the high mortality, with one death due to cardiovascular disease every 33 seconds, creates a substantial market demand for innovative medical devices that can contribute to the prevention, early diagnosis, & effective treatment of heart-related conditions. The substantial economic burden of heart disease, costing the U.S. about USD 239.9 billion annually, presents challenges and opportunities for growth in the medical device industry.
