Report Overview

The U.S. medical device outsourcing market size was valued at USD 23.3 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to exhibit a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.2% over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 had delayed medical procedures; thereby, creating a challenging environment for the manufacturers. Many companies had temporarily ceased their research & development activities due to complete lockdowns. This had led to a severe disruption in the supply chain, which caused the shortages & a slowing down of production. The recovery of the market has started as the earlier shortage in medical supply is overcome when market entry barriers are reduced. The increased production of test kits and diagnostic systems has also helped in the recovery.

U.S. medical device outsourcing market size, by service, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

Since February 2020, the FDA has authorized over 250 Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs). The EUAs cover in vitro diagnostics and other testing kits, PPE kits and ventilators, and ECMO devices, among others. Diagnostic tests and kits have played an essential role in fighting against the spread of COVID-19. However, these kits along with numerous medical products were imported from low-cost manufacturing countries, such as China, India, and Germany. Growing complexities in product engineering, coupled with an increase in the number of small-sized manufacturers, are expected to present this market with future growth opportunities. The rapidly increasing geriatric population, which is prone to chronic medical conditions, is also anticipated to drive market growth by widening the target patient base.

Furthermore, associated benefits, such as reduction in production cost and focus on core competencies by the organizations, are expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period. The medical device industry is currently facing challenging headwinds. Sharp cutbacks in public spending in the U.S. are a major issue faced by medical device manufacturers. Increasing prices, profitability pressure, growing competition coupled with a high degree of industry maturity has a great impact on this market. Amendments in the ISO standards are expected to boost the demand for quality assurance and regulatory affairs service providers in the U.S. and Europe region as Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) would require third-party assistance to comply with new ISO standards.
