Medical Devices

The medical device market in the United States is a $100 billion a year industry and $225 billion worldwide.

Many medical equipment companies have been adversely affected during the recession as hospitals cut capital spending.

There has been significant decrease in overall capital outlays for the laboratory by the hospital.  About 77% of U.S. hospitals have slashed their capital spending on clinical technology, facility upgrades or information technology since early 2008, according to a survey by the American Hospital Association.


The mix of companies in the medical systems and equipment group is diverse. It ranges from medical robotics to heart instruments to radiation therapy products to patient monitoring systems.

The strongest performers are device and gear makers with business models tied to less expensive disposable products, rather than big-ticket items, or to critical procedures rather than elective surgeries.
