Market Dynamics:

Growing Adoption Of Medical Devices Is The Critical Determinant Of The Market

There has been an explosive adoption of medical electronics and electrical systems such as Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, defibrillators, electrocardiography, heart-lung machines, surgical, diagnostic and therapy systems, to name a few. The growth in adoption of medical electronics and electrical systems is in direct correlation with the increase in demand for medical connectors. Adoption of ultrasound, which need high numbers of mating, cycles is another driver of the market.

Custom Designed And Refurbishing Of Medical Devices Coupled With Growing Demand Of Sterilizable, Reusable And Disposable Medical Connectors Is Driving A Significant Demand

Growing adoption of in situ diagnostic and surgical devices is driving a tremendous demand for sterilizable, reusable, hybrids, and cost-effective disposable medical connectors. The growing customization of devices to meet specific application requirements is another driver of the market. There is a significant demand for medical connectors with low-friction coatings such as silicon. Other market trends include watertight sealing, autoclavable, and surviving temperatures above 121° C for 20 minutes.  Another development has been the demand for antimicrobial-coated connectors to meet FDA standards.

WHO estimates that 8.7% of hospital patients had nosocomial infections affecting over 1.4 million people worldwide. The US government will start penalizing hospitals in 2017 under the Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP) of the Affordable Care Act, for hospital-acquired infection. This development is expected to be the most active driver for the U.S. market.

Bifurcation In Low Tech And High Tech Connectors Is Resulting In A Bimodal Market

The medical connectors market is bifurcated in low cost and cheap, low-tech devices, most of which are disposable. There is a stringent competition in this market segment. The high tech devices segment is consolidated where a premium can be charged. Thus a bimodal market exists, and firms have different market power and technologies exists side by side.
