Market Dynamics

The medical device contract manufacturing market growth is driven due to growing disease prevalence, life expectancy, and the geriatric population. Technological advancement has prompted end users to overhaul or update their manufacturing systems. As this is a costly process, they look to contract manufacturing. Moreover, macro-economic factors such as an increasingly aging population across the globe paired with the increasing prevalence of non-invasive surgical procedures are driving demand for medical devices and the global medical device contract manufacturing market.  In addition to this, the COVID-19 outbreak has accelerated the adoption of advanced diagnostics and patient care devices for better treatment management.

Impact of Industry 4.0 on the medical devices industry is expected to drive the growth in the forecast period

Innovation in Class III medical devices is rising, consequent to the growing development and production of complex products such as pacemakers and implantable medical devices. Medical device companies face challenges in manufacturing Class III devices in high volumes, given the complexity of the assembly and test processes. Furthermore, both the devices and processes must meet regulatory compliance for component traceability and verification, storage, and access. With the complexity involved in producing a Class III device in these volumes, automated production and manufacturing are necessary. As a result, OEMs are leveraging the expertise of electronic manufacturing services, seeking automation, high-quality manufacturing systems, and regulatory compliance.

Industry 4.0 technologies—including cloud computing, machine-to-machine communication, and cyber-physical systems—enable advanced automation that helps overcome these production challenges. These technologies increased connectivity and data-gathering capabilities to build high-volume, regulation-compliant manufacturing processes with efficient inventory and production management.

Governments in several APAC countries are encouraging players to integrate 4.0 in their manufacturing processes to boost technologically advanced medical devices further. For instance, Thailand's 4.0 growth model created an innovative center to increase the development and manufacturing of medtech devices. The Intellectual Property Innovation-driven Entrepreneurship Center (IP-IDE) maintains its data pool and patent information, further shared with small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to develop newer technologies. With the IP-IDE center, the Thai government aims to encourage Thai medical device companies to innovate and expand across domestic and foreign markets.

With the increasing adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies in manufacturing critical and sophisticated medical devices and enhancing the technology pool that it brings to the table, the medical device outsourced manufacturing market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period.

Consolidation in the medical devices market is likely to hamper the market growth

Big medical device manufacturers actively invest in acquiring small and medium-sized specialized companies to increase their internal capabilities. This may limit outsourcing to CMOs, given that acquirers will have the capabilities to carry out manufacturing in-house. For example, Linden’s acquisition of AvalignTechnologies Medical in December 2018 provided Linden with expanded opportunities for future growth and greatly added to its capabilities.

Other medical device companies are also acquiring CMOs to decrease their expenses for contract manufacturing. This is leading to a shift in medical device manufacturing.

For instance, in 2017, Nordson (US) acquired Vention Medical’s (US) advanced technology business segment. This segment has expertise in designing, developing, and manufacturing minimally invasive interventional delivery devices, catheters, and advanced components. This development will shift a minute share of medical device manufacturing from CMOs to OEMs.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 pandemic has positively and negatively affected major industries worldwide by disturbing production cycles and supply chains across industries. The medical device industry has faced huge challenges in erasing the pandemic, as the number of infections shows no signs of subsiding. Half of the world is currently facing a second wave of the pandemic. The medical device contract manufacturing market is expected to be impacted by the pandemic as the demand for medical devices for elective procedures has decreased. On the contrary, the demand for medical devices such as ventilators and respirators has risen multifold, increasing the growth prospects for medical device contract manufacturers.

Major players in the market have ensured that there are minimal supply chain disruptions to their clients. To ensure their safety, companies have also implemented more rigorous cleaning and disinfection procedures, enforcing visitor guidance and screening, restricting business travel, and setting up remote working arrangements and strict quarantine measures.
