Medical Device Manufacturing: How Big is the Medical Device Industry and What Does it Include?

The United States medical device market, the world’s largest, was valued at $168.76 billion in 2020, which is an increase at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4 percent since 2015. Medical devices are irreplaceable in diagnostics, prevention, monitoring, and medical treatment of diseases and in increasing the quality of life of persons with a health problem. These include reconstructive devices such as hip and knee replacements, as well as implantable monitors for cardiac and diabetic care.

Variability and innovativeness of this industry and its devices significantly contribute to an increase in the quality and efficiency of health care. Examples of Roberson Machine Company’s medical device manufacturing producing parts possibly used in devices include the following, grouped within industry sectors, as well as technologies and processes:

Industry Sectors of Medical Device Manufacturing

  • Orthopedics
  • This has been one of the fastest growing sectors in medical device manufacturing. It includes:

    This sector utilizes our specialized manufacturing processes like CNC machining, casting, grinding, polishing, and metal injection molding for parts.

  • Diabetes Devices
  • Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a leading example of this sector. Key technologies include nanotechnology, sensors, and assembly.

  • Surgical Instruments & Technologies
  • One of the largest segments, this includes dilators, sutures, and surgical robotics. Key technologies include micromachining, surface treatments, and materials.

  • Diagnostic Apparatus
  • Endoscopic devices, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance instruments are examples of this sector. Key technologies include imaging, information technology, and micromachining.

  • Cardiovascular Devices
  • This highly competitive sector includes pacemakers, defibrillators, and drug stents. Key technologies include power sources, micromolding, and assembly.

  • Dental Instruments & Technologies
  • Imaging equipment, implants, drills, and instruments. CNC machining is a key technology.

  • Other segments
  • Spinal devices, catheters, syringes and hypodermic needles, blood transfusion and IV equipment, internal fixation devices, neuromodulation devices, and urology devices.

    Technologies & Processes of Medical Device Manufacturing

  • Machining — From components to other devices to joint implants, many require machining of medical grade materials. Roberson Machine Company, as opposed to some other contract medical device manufacturers, utilizes our CNC machining services to stay ahead of the curve.
  • Measurement & Inspection — Maintaining quality requires consistent, reliable, and verifiable measurement and inspection. Down to micron and submicron levels, medical device manufacturing can face unique technology and process challenges.
  • Assembly — From selecting appropriate joining methods to meet biocompatibility requirements to handling what can be micron-sized components, medical device manufacturing assembly must be conducted within clean room environments. Roberson Machine Company owns its centrally-located facility and the land surrounding it, and maintains a highly hygienic environment.
  • Materials — In addition to all the usual material requirements, biocompatibility presents a unique challenge for material choice for medical device manufacturing.
  • Micromanufacturing — For many reasons, devices continue to get smaller and smaller. Features and components of just a few microns require the specialty processes of micromanufacturing, including micromachining and micromolding.
  • Nanotechnology — From new materials and coatings to drug delivery systems, the use of nanotechnology in medical devices and medicine continues to grow.
  • Power sources — With the advancement of implantable medical devices for monitoring and treatment, the selection and development of power sources has become a critical part of medical device manufacturing. At Roberson Machine Company, we have made recent adjustments to our new medical device manufacturing equipment to adapt to these advancements.
