  • Detail

The medical device market is attractive and localization is urgent.

the medical device industry is a multidisciplinary, knowledge intensive and capital intensive high-tech industry, with a high entry threshold. At present, the overall level of medical equipment in Chinese medical institutions is still very low. About 15% of the medical devices and equipment in primary medical and health institutions across the country are products before and after the 1970s, and 60% are products before the mid-1980s. Their upgrading process is also a process of demand release, accompanied by the implementation of the new medical reform, It will ensure the rapid growth of China's medical device market in the next 10 years or even longer

120 billion, another attractive cake

with the deepening of reform and opening up, the continuous increase of national support and the acceleration of global integration, China's medical device industry has developed by leaps and bounds. At present, although there is a gap between China's medical device industry and developed countries, the development speed of China's medical devices has attracted the attention of the world

China's newly developed medical device products are also at the forefront of the international medical device industry. In the next few years, China will surpass Japan and become the second largest medical equipment market in the world

in the past 10 years, the average annual growth rate of China's medical device exports to ASEAN has reached 28.1%, which is 3 percentage points higher than the average annual growth rate of China's medical device exports (25.11%). The average annual growth rate of import volume is 13.1%

statistics show that in 2009, China's total import of medical devices was US $6.105 billion, an increase of 17.03% year-on-year. Among the import target markets, the United States, Germany, Japan, Switzerland and the Netherlands rank among the top five, with a market share of 71.47%. China's total export of medical devices is US $12.24 billion, and the total import is US $6.1 billion

ISuppli pointed out that the sales of medical electronic equipment in China will increase by 18.2% to US $3.9 billion in 2009. This strong momentum will be maintained in the next few years, with a compound annual growth rate of 21%, rising to $8.6 billion by 2013

Zhang Wenming, CEO of Philips Greater China Healthcare department, revealed that the annual growth rate of the high-end medical device market is about 10%, while the growth rate of medium and low-end medical devices is 30%

Li Shuzhen, general manager of CCID Consulting semiconductor research center, pointed out that under the promotion of the new medical reform, the demand for medical electronic equipment in rural areas, secondary and tertiary cities and communities will be released rapidly, and the different characteristics of the household and medical markets will also contribute to the rapid and stable growth trend of China's portable medical electronic market. It is expected that China's portable medical electronic market will continue to maintain a growth rate of about 30% in the next three years

experts predict that by 2010, the market capacity of China's medical devices will reach 120billion yuan, but at present, more than 90% of domestic medical devices are medium and low-grade conventional products. Accelerating the development of the medical device industry has become an important strategic deployment for China's economic development

850billion, foreign giants covet the feast of the new medical reform

China's new medical reform plan proposes that governments at all levels are expected to invest 850billion yuan in medical reform within three years, while ensuring that most of the investment is used for basic and multi curve comparison; The test results can be output in Excel format. Among them, the primary medical care and medical information market has become a big cake that the industry generally believes will benefit from the new medical reform

according to IDC's analysis and prediction, the overall IT market investment scale of China's medical industry will reach more than 12 billion yuan by 2010. Rao Keqin, director of the statistical information center of the Ministry of health, also said that among the 850billion yuan investment in the new medical reform, the proportion of information technology investment must be more than 10billion yuan

however, the huge opportunity of the new medical reform is not readily available to multinational companies. The Ministry of health plans to deploy relevant medical devices and equipment for county hospitals and central township hospitals nationwide by means of centralized bidding and procurement. Economy and applicability are the core requirements for equipment configuration at the national level. However, despite this, the international medical equipment giants with sharp tentacles have already begun to deploy troops at the grass-roots level, and have also made up for their price disadvantages through telemedicine and financial services

in 2009, Siemens China's internal strategic plan code named Smart has entered its third promotion year. Products that are simple to use, easy to maintain, appropriate in price, reliable, durable and timely on the market have begun to explore market segments at the grass-roots level. Signed an agreement of intent with Shenyang Weikang Pharmaceutical Group on establishing a strategic partnership. Siemens will provide Weikang hospital with a complete set of medical diagnosis solutions with a total value of about 70million yuan in the form of comprehensive equipment leasing

another medical equipment giant, general electric, simply set a sharp contrast between stone textured engineering plastics and mild cloth. In the rural market, the clinical systems department of Ge group promised to launch new rural basic medical products and achieve the goal of launching a new product every six months

localization is an important task for China's medical device enterprises

in recent years, multinational companies such as GE, Siemens and other enterprises have rushed to China's related products, and now they have basically formed a monopoly position in this market. It is urgent for China to accelerate the localization of high-end digital medical equipment. The massive influx of foreign high-end digital medical equipment has not only caused a huge impact on the national digital medical equipment industry in its infancy, resulting in the loss of a large number of commercial profits and foreign exchange in China, but also contributed to the rapid growth of medical expenses, directly affecting the vital interests of the broad masses of the people

during the two sessions, Li Jian, deputy to the National People's Congress and Secretary of the Party committee of Wuhan University, suggested that the country "should pay attention to the localization of high-end digital medical equipment". He believes that the development of China's digital medical equipment industry faces important opportunities

from a domestic perspective, first of all, China has the largest digital medical equipment industry market in the world. As China has a population of 1.3 billion, as we move towards a well-off society in an all-round way, people's awareness of medical care continues to strengthen, and the digital medical equipment industry will become a big industry. Secondly, the digital medical equipment industry has a long industrial chain and a large degree of industrial relevance. If it develops, it can effectively drive China's electronic information industry, which is still in the early stage of development, bioengineering, new materials, precision manufacturing and a large number of related industries. Third, after years of efforts, we have broken through the key core technologies of a number of digital medical devices and preliminarily realized industrialization. Fourth, as public hospitals deepen the reform of the medical system and separate medicine, the proportion of medical services will further increase, and the demand for digital medical equipment, especially high-end digital medical equipment, will be more vigorous

therefore, the state should increase investment in independent innovation and research and development of key technologies of digital medical equipment, speed up the establishment of China's digital medical equipment technical standard system, and strengthen the training of talents in the digital medical equipment industry

the author believes that the implementation of the new medical reform provides a good environment for local enterprises to innovate and develop. Combined with the current actual situation and the development trend of the future medical industry, China's medical equipment industry should accelerate the upgrading of medical device products, give priority to the development of high-quality medium and low-grade products suitable for local hospitals, actively develop physical therapy devices and home medical and health care devices, and through local innovation, with a view to developing and expanding China's medical equipment industry in the next few years

with the rapid improvement of domestic enterprises' R & D strength and the shift of market focus from high-tech to universal, the competitiveness of domestic products is gradually increasing, providing a rare opportunity for domestic manufacturers to expand the market. It can be predicted that the development of China's medical device industry will be unlimited in the future
