What is the development history of medical devices?
Posted by Admin
The medical device industry involves multiple industries such as medicine, machinery, electronics, and plastics. It is a multi-disciplinary, 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-field modern high-tech. Its products have high technical content and high profits. Therefore, they are the commanding heights of major technological countries and large international companies. The barriers to entry are high. Even in sub-sectors where the overall gross profit margin of the industry is low and investment is not high, products with higher technical content will continue to appear, and some companies with strong profitability will be bred from them. Therefore, the overall trend of the industry is high investment and high returns.
Medical imaging equipment is an indispensable part of the hospital's medical equipment and an important manifestation of the hospital's comprehensive strength. It not only provides important guarantees 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 the hospital.
With the development of China's medical industry and the upgrading of some hospital equipment, the market demand for medical imaging diagnostic equipment in China has increased dramatically in recent years, which objectively promotes the development of my country's medical imaging diagnostic equipment industry. In the process of rapid development, Some companies continue to grow and develop, forming a certain degree of competitiveness, and the market share of domestic self-produced medical imaging diagnostic equipment has increased.
As an important part of the medical industry, medical equipment is the standard used to judge medical institutions second only to the allocation of medical equipment in medical institutions to consumers.
The medical device industry is a multidisciplinary, knowledge-intensive, and capital-intensive high-tech industry with high barriers to entry. The overall level of medical equipment in China’s medical institutions is still very low. Of the medical equipment 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 upgrading is another process of demand release, which will ensure the rapid growth of China's medical device market in the next 10 years or even longer.
