Based on the analysis of the current situation of China's medical device industry in 2017, experts believe that under the integration of science and technology and services, there are eight main trends in the future of China's medical device industry.
The market of medical device industry will continue to expand. With the rapid development of China's economy and society, the total annual sales of medical devices in China is expected to exceed 700 billion yuan by 2020. In the next 10 years, the growth rate of the medical device industry in China will remain at an average annual growth rate of more than 10%.
China's low and medium-end medical device market will expand rapidly. At present, the level of medical equipment allocation in grass-roots medical institutions in our country is low and there is a big gap. It is urgent to "renew" and "fill the gap". In the 13th Five-Year Medical Reform, graded diagnosis and treatment will be the primary task. The development of equipment allocation in primary medical institutions will become an important part of the work in 2017, and the growth of middle and low-end medical devices will be rapid.
Domestic innovative medical devices will continue to emerge. With the progress of science and technology, especially the implementation of the national policy of encouraging innovative medical device R&D and production, and the pull of medical demand, the emergence of self-innovative medical devices in China will be accelerated. The proportion of domestic high-end medical devices in the market will gradually increase, and the leading position of multinational companies'products in the domestic high-end medical devices market will be gradually broken. Domestic medical device products will break through from the low-end market to the high-end market. At the same time, technological upgrading will also lead to the upgrading of high-value consumables consumption in medical institutions.
The import and export of medical devices will continue to increase. Judging from the trend of import and export of medical devices in China, the total import and export volume will further increase. Among them, imported medical devices will continue to increase steadily, and will continue to be dominated by high-end video products; export volume will continue to increase, and the proportion of high-end medical devices will continue to increase, and the variety structure of export medical devices will gradually improve.
The merger and reorganization of the medical device industry will accelerate. Horizontal and vertical integration of mergers, alliances and reorganizations among enterprises in China's medical device industry will occur. Production will accelerate to focus on large-scale medical device enterprises. Small and medium-sized enterprises will concentrate on the research and development of certain devices or parts of certain devices, or be merged or reorganized by large-scale medical device manufacturers. 。 It is predicted that in the next 5-10 years, "aircraft carriers" in China's medical equipment industry will probably be born in the Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta, or Bohai Rim.
Household medical devices will flourish. Under the trend of "miniaturization and intellectualization" of medical devices, people will make "big equipment small, silly equipment smart" in hospitals, and then take them home for use. Therefore, the field of medical devices in China has ushered in a new outlet: intelligent home medical equipment. According to statistics from relevant institutions, China's domestic medical device market will reach 61 billion yuan in 2017.
Third-party services based on medical devices will accelerate the rise. A series of policy documents have made it clear that medical imaging, testing, blood purification and pathology centers can be used as independent medical institutions. It is foreseeable that in the future, the emerging intensive service modes based on third-party diagnosis, inspection, pathology, logistics, disinfection, maintenance, equipment packaging and so on will accelerate the rise.
The six core areas have great potential for development, and there may be major breakthroughs in the future. These six areas are IVD (including POCT), high-value consumables, medical robots, household medical equipment, 3D printing devices and medical imaging.
