Analysis of the problems and development prospects of Chinas medical device industry in 2021


Sustained development, increased man-made disposable income, rising public health awareness, intensified social aging trend, upgrading of the medical device industry and policy support, these medical device industries will maintain rapid expansion. According to data, the size of China's medical device market in 2018 was approximately US$530.4 billion, with an annual growth rate of 19.86%, which is close to four times the global growth rate of medical devices. China Business Industry Research Institute predicts that China's medical device market will reach 776.5 billion US dollars in 2020.

Breakthroughs in the development of the medical device industry:

1. Complicated hospital procurement management process

According to laws and regulations such as the "Management Methods for the Configuration and Use of Large-scale Medical Equipment (Trial)", the national competent authority mainly adopts product catalog management for the configuration license of large-scale medical equipment. If the orthopedic surgery navigation and positioning robot or subsequent newly developed products are clearly listed in the category A or B scope of the catalog management due to the product type, it is necessary to apply for a configuration permit to the provincial health administrative department or even the National Health Commission.

2. Doctor-patient acceptance

Robot-assisted navigation and positioning surgery has not produced major changes to doctors¡¯ surgical procedures, but only the time for orthopedic surgical robots to enter clinical surgical applications has been shortened. Robot-assisted surgery is still in its infancy. Doctors have a process of learning and accepting the use of new technologies, while patients The establishment of confidence in the effect of robot-assisted surgery also requires a process, which has caused some doctors and patients to be reluctant to try robot-assisted surgery, which has caused certain difficulties for the issuer's product promotion.

3. The product has high formaldehyde and high operation cost

The charge for an operation usually includes operation fees, anesthesia fees, hospitalization fees, blood transfusion fees, medicine fees, and inspection fees. Surgical robots are large-scale medical equipment with a higher terminal size, which is one of the reasons that affect the wide range of orthopedic surgery navigation and positioning robots. , Consumables and other unit charges. At present, the charge for the navigation and positioning robot for orthopedic surgery is included as a supplementary item in the patient's surgery statement, and the robot usage fee is approved by the local health authority. The charge item for orthopedic surgical robots is a new medical service price item. Currently, it only replaces the medical insurance coverage in Jiangmen City, Guangdong Province. The disposable sterile positioning kit has not replaced the medical insurance coverage separately, so patients choose to use the orthopedic surgical navigation positioning robot and The disposable sterile positioning kit will increase the economic burden.

Development prospects of the medical device industry

1. The proportion of medical equipment expenditure in medical and health expenditure and per capita

Due to the late start of these medical device industries and the long-term "medicine to support medical treatment" industry model, companies have paid more attention to the development and development of the drug market, causing the medical device market to lag far behind the drug market. At the same time, medical device companies are undergoing a shift from quantity to quality, from imitation to brand building, and from "heavy drugs to light devices" to "balanced development of drugs and devices". change. The difference between the medical device and pharmaceutical markets is gradually narrowing. In the future, certain medical device markets have great potential for development, and the per capita medical device costs are expected to increase steadily.

2. Increasing human disposable income drives growth in urban and rural healthcare expenditures

By 2019, the national disposable income of residents will be 30,733 yuan, an increase of 8.44%. Urban and rural residents' household medical and health expenditures are on the rise as a whole, and their proportion in per capita consumption expenditure has also increased year by year, driving the development of the medical device market.
