3 MIN. READ

The multi-billion dollar medical and surgical instrument manufacturing industry is predicted to grow substantially in the future.

Although the industry is in the midst of a mild stagnation period due to international trade instabilities, the demand for these devices is so strong that industry contraction has been mostly avoided.

Medical and surgical instruments cover a wide variety of machines, tools and equipment used in healthcare and surgery. The majority of these products must be made for compliance with sterile conditions.

Technology and the Future

The future of the medical and surgical instrument manufacturing industry is buoyed by rapid advances in technology, specifically artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things, nanotech and telemedicine. Rather than requiring patients to visit a doctor's office or hospital, telemedicine allows medical professionals to meet with and diagnose patients anywhere in the world through specialized video conferencing systems.

Closely associated with telemedicine is automated home care technology. To dovetail with the convenience of being diagnosed at home, treatment systems are also being customized for use outside of hospitals.

Currently, the vast majority of these treatments are designed for the elderly, but the technology is still in its early stages. Many more population segments will undoubtedly benefit from this technology in the future.

Developed and emerging nations' demand for improved healthcare is increasing healthcare spend. However, according to data collected by MNI, the growth has slowed due to trade war uncertainty and supply chain issues.

The increase in sales over the previous year is only 0.11%.
