Sep 13, 2014 : Bharat Book Bureau presents the new report, on "Medical Device Coatings” examines the medical device coating and surface modification treatment industry, a global enterprise that BCC Research anticipates will reach nearly $8 billion by 2017.
REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

The global medical device coating market reached $4.8 billion in 2010 and $5.4 billion in 2011. The market is expected to grow from $5.7 billion in 2012 to nearly $8 billion in 2017, a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.7%.

The United States market for medical device coatings reached $2.7 billion in 2011, is expected to reach nearly $3 billion in 2012, and should total nearly $4.4 billion by 2017, a five-year CAGR of 8.1%.

The European Union market for medical device coatings reached $1.3 billion in 2011, is expected to reach $1.4 billion in 2012, and should surpass $2 billion in 2017, a five-year CAGR of 7.0%.

REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

STUDY GOAL AND OBJECTIVES

This study examines the medical device coating and surface modification treatment industry, a global enterprise that BCC Research anticipates will reach nearly $8 billion by 2017. It describes the eight coating and surface treatment technologies that add value to more than 1,000 types of medical devices used in 19 healthcare areas. Forecasts for each healthcare area project demand from 2012 through 2017. In addition to global summaries, separate forecasts are provided for the United States, the European Union, other developed nations and the rest of the world.

REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY

In the six years since BCC Research undertook its first comprehensive study of the medical device coatings and surface modification treatment industry, the business has responded to a shifting balance of driving and limiting forces originating from within and outside the healthcare and coating communities. During that time, the fast pace of technological advances that originally drove the industry has slowed.

While innovation continues, its focus has shifted away from new coating materials to improving products already in use. The regulatory environment likewise evolved. Requirements that were vague at the beginning of the new century formalized with the creation of a new U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) office created to oversee so-called combination products. Earlier this year (2012), the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM), the nation’s leading independent authority on medical science, called for a complete overhaul of the FDA regulatory process through which new products come to market. The announcement came as new studies raised questions not only about the comparative efficacy of two major types of coated metal products, arterial stents and artificial hip joints, but also the FDA’s mechanism for identifying poorly performing products.

Against that backdrop of regulatory uncertainty, the industry has been forced to confront unanticipated economic times stemming from the “jobless recovery” following the 2008 recession and the sovereign debt crisis in Europe. Greater regulatory and economic uncertainty looms on the horizon. As this study goes to press, the U.S. Supreme Court is deliberating the legality of a federal law that, beginning in 2014, would fine Americans who refuse to purchase private health insurance.

INTENDED AUDIENCE

This study will be of interest to stakeholders in the medical device industry; the coatings and surface treatments industries; suppliers of alloys, ceramics, polymers, and other materials used in the manufacture of coatings; manufacturers of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and energy sources that can be incorporated into coatings; coating and medical device importers; medical device contract manufacturers; and the regulatory community and healthcare policy analysts. It will also provide useful insights for those exploring investments opportunities in what despite regulatory and economic uncertainty remains a vibrant and growing segment of the medical device industry.

SCOPE AND FORMAT

This study looks at medical device coatings and surface treatments from the perspective of both the supply and demand side of the equation, that is from coating manufacturers who supply the materials, the medical device companies which use it and the members of the healthcare that influence purchases.

Consistent with the scope of the study, the format of this report is arranged to present its five-year forecasts as a series of tables. Each of those tables presents U.S. current dollar demand values for coatings and surface processes for 2010 and 2011 and a five-year period from 2012 through 2017. Separate sets of forecasts are presented for the:

Eight types of coatings and surface treatment technologies.

19 healthcare areas that correspond to FDA medical device review panels.

United States, European Union, other developed nations and the rest of the world.

TECHNOLOGIES

We present forecasts for the seven basic types of coatings plus surface treatment technologies. Coatings are grouped on the basis of their most distinguishing chemical or physical characteristic. Surface treatments are defined as those processes that alter the surface of a device without adding a chemical or physical agent. For example, we characterize chrome plating as a type of alloy coating, rather than a surface treatment. The eight types of technology addressed in this study are:

Alloy.

Ceramic.

Combination.

Energy-absorbing.

Energy-emitting.

Micro and nano.

Protective polymer.

Surface treatment.
