The medical device contract manufacturing market is projected to reach USD 126 Billion by 2030, growing at an annualized rate of 8%, claims Roots Analysis

Published: August 2019

Owing to numerous technical and regulatory challenges related to the development and production of medical devices, outsourcing has become a popular business model for innovator companies; in fact, a number of contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) presently provide specialized manufacturing services for various types of medical devices

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of Medical Device Contract Manufacturing Market report to its list of offerings. 

More than 100 medical devices were approved by the FDA in 2018, while several are currently being evaluated across more than 9,500 (active) clinical trials, worldwide. Further, increase in aging population, coupled with rise in the prevalence of chronic disorders, are likely to drive the demand for medical devices. Therefore, in order to reduce the overall cost and expedite the time to market, majority of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are outsourcing their medical device manufacturing operations to CMOs.
