History of medical devices

The medical device industry involves many industries such as medicine, machinery, electronics, and plastics. It is a multidisciplinary, knowledge-intensive, and capital-intensive high-tech industry. The basic characteristics of high-tech medical equipment are digitization and computerization. It is the crystallization of multi-disciplinary and cross-domain modern high-tech. Its products have high technical content and high profits. The barriers to entry are high. Even in sub-sectors with low overall gross profit margin and low investment, products with high technical content will continue to appear, and some companies with strong profitability will be born from them. Therefore, the overall trend of the industry is high investment and high income.

Medical imaging equipment is an indispensable part of hospital medical equipment and an important manifestation of the hospital’s comprehensive strength. It not only provides an important guarantee for clinical diagnosis and treatment, but also provides an important platform for clinical scientific research. As a comprehensive platform, imaging equipment plays an important role in promoting the development of hospitals.

With the development of my country’s medical industry and the upgrading of some hospital equipment, the market demand for medical imaging diagnostic equipment in my country has grown rapidly in recent years, which has objectively promoted the development of my country’s medical imaging diagnostic equipment industry. In the process of rapid development, Some enterprises continue to grow and develop, forming a certain competitiveness, and the market share of domestic self-produced medical imaging diagnostic equipment has increased.

Medical equipment is an important part of the pharmaceutical industry. For consumers, the configuration of medical equipment in medical institutions is second only to the standard used by doctors to judge medical institutions.

The medical device industry is a multidisciplinary, knowledge-intensive and capital-intensive high-tech industry with a high entry barrier. The overall level of medical equipment in Chinese medical institutions is still very low. Among the medical devices and equipment in primary medical and health institutions across the country, about 15% are products around the 1970s, and 60% are products before the mid-1980s. , the process of their replacement is a process of demand release, which will ensure the rapid growth of China’s medical device market in the next 10 years or even longer.
