August 6th, 2012

As the medical device landscape continues to expand, its increasingly crucial for device makers, buyers and suppliers to dissect the range of opportunities. From urological and vascular access devices to orthopedic soft tissue repair and patient monitoring equipment. Global Information Inc, in partnership with publishing firm iData Research Inc, is pleased to announce the immediate availability of new market research reports that offer businesses, investors, entrepreneurs, suppliers, governments, and watch-dogs a detailed look at which medical devices are gaining traction across Asia, Europe and the US.

Orthopedic Soft Tissue Repair and Sports Medicine

Three new reports use comprehensive and detailed analysis to provide a regional outlook of the orthopedic soft tissue repair market.

The Japanese Market for Orthopedic Soft Tissue Repair and Sports Medicine exceeded $1 billion in 2011 while the Chinese market for orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine was valued at $154 million in 2011. While Indias orthopedic soft tissue repair market still lags behind China and Japan, it reached a respectable $17 million in 2011. Shoulder repair, knee repair and hyaluronic acid viscosupplementation are expected to grow rapidly, driven by the again and active population and an increased awareness of the sports medicine field. Due to the largely untapped demand for sports medicine procedures in China, this market has a very high potential for growth.

Product R&D, innovation and adoption is expected to help generate strong revenues for sports medicine and the soft tissue repair market in the Japanese, Chinese and Indian markets. In this series, iData Research Inc. analyzes market revenues by device type, unit sales, average selling prices, manufacturer market shares and product portfolios.

European Market for Medical Devices

The market for medical devices is a lucrative one in Europe with opportunities abound. Three new reports assess market revenues by device type and provide market forecasts through 2018 for the Urology, Vascular, and Dental Prosthetics segments.

European Markets for Urological Devices was valued at over € 1.06 billion in 2011. The total market is driven by the advancements in technology that allow urological disorders to be diagnosed earlier and with increased accuracy. Improved diagnosis is also due to a decline in social stigma that is associated with many urological disorders such as incontinence and BPH. Because of this, many more patients are seeking treatment sooner when symptoms develop, rather than waiting until they become unbearable. The new report analyzes the markets for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostate cancer, urinary incontinence and urological stones.

A combination of an aging baby boomer population, popular culture and the media are driving dental procedures in Europe and both the prosthetic and CAD/CAM system markets are expected to continue to rise during the 2011 to 2018 forecast period. The European Market for Dental Prosthetics and CAD/CAM Devices report includes information on the European crown and bridge market; the CAD/CAM Prosthetic market; the denture market; and the CAD/CAM System market.

European Markets for Vascular Access Devices totaled over € 928 million in 2011 driven by growth in the peripherally inserted central catheters (PICC) and peripheral intravenous catheter (PIVC) markets. The new report includes information for the following vascular access market segments: implantable port, port needle, central venous catheter, dialysis catheter, peripherally inserted central catheter, peripheral intravenous catheter, and syringes and needles.

Market for Patient Monitoring Equipment

The U.S. patient monitoring device and equipment market is expected to exceed $4 billion by 2018. The market for patient monitoring devices and equipment includes multi-parameter vital sign monitors; wireless ambulatory telemetry monitoring; telehealth; intra-cranial pressure monitors and consumables; electromyogram devices and consumables; electroencephalogram monitors; cerebral oximetry monitors and consumables; fetal and neonatal monitors; pulse oximetry monitors, consumables and circuit boards; cardiac output devices and consumables; and blood pressure monitors. Steady growth is expected as monitoring expands to previously unmonitored hospital departments, and is increasingly adopted as a consumer healthcare product.
