Asia has become a new focus of global medical device growth

with the rapid entry of China, Japan and South Korea into an aging society and the transformation of diseases from infectious diseases to cardiovascular diseases, the structure of the Asian medical device market will also undergo profound changes

some organizations predict that the global sales of minimally invasive surgical instruments used in cardiovascular or cardiac surgery, such as implantable vascular stents, catheters for vascular surgery, heart valves, artificial blood vessels, etc., will reach a staggering 19.5 billion to 20 billion US dollars in 2011, of which Asia accounts for 15% of the share, ranking third behind the United States and Europe. The rapid growth of the Asian market has attracted the attention of western economic analysts

electronic diagnostic imager has become a routine configuration in hospitals

30 years ago, doctors in most Asian countries did not know what CT machine was, except that hospitals in highly developed countries and regions such as Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong had advanced diagnostic imagers such as CT. Today, Asia has become the world's third largest market for large diagnostic imagers such as CT, MRI and high-definition X-ray machines

it is understood that tens of thousands of black-and-white or color B-ultrasound, thousands of ordinary CT machines, hundreds of nuclear magnetic resonance imaging machines and other advanced electronic diagnostic equipment were sold in Asia last year. Now even some rural hospitals in rich Asian countries are equipped with CT machines, not to mention the relatively cheap B-ultrasound

rapid popularization of small electronic devices for personal diagnosis

another new situation in the Asian medical device market is that small electronic devices for personal diagnosis are rapidly popularized in many Asian countries

with the change of diet structure in Asian countries, hypertension and hyperglycemia have become a new disease for Asian people. Therefore, small products such as electronic sphygmomanometers and electronic blood glucose meters, which are convenient to carry and use, are very popular in Asian countries. Last year, a total of 26million electronic sphygmomanometers and more than 18 million electronic blood glucose meters were sold in Asia. With the economic development and the improvement of people's living standards in many Asian countries, the market scale of small electronic diagnostic instruments in Asian countries will continue to expand in the future. The thermostatic liquid in the tank can be introduced out during external circulation

a large market for orthopaedic devices is just around the corner

the number of Asian elderly population accounts for about half of the global elderly population, and the elderly are prone to various bone and joint diseases. Therefore, it is predicted that products such as artificial bone and joint, bone cement, artificial bone and other orthopaedic devices will become new hot commodities in the Asian medical device market

at present, except for economically developed countries such as Japan, South Korea and Singapore, the artificial bone and joint market in Asia has not really taken shape. The United States and other developed western countries consume millions of artificial bones and joints, other orthopaedic instruments and orthopaedic instruments every year. It is believed that with the economic development of Asian countries, East Asia and some rich Southeast Asian countries are expected to become a new source of growth in the international market for artificial bones and joints and orthopaedic devices

there is another basis for western economic analysts to be optimistic about the development prospect of the Asian medical device market, that is, Vietnam and Indonesia, which were regarded as the new rise of underdeveloped countries by Westerners before the experimental machine was mainly used for the static tensile test of data and parts. The two countries have a total population of nearly 300million, and their GDP has grown rapidly in the past few years. This has laid a foundation for the two governments to increase national medical and health expenditure. At present, whether in Indonesia or Vietnam, the medical equipment configuration of township level hospitals is not ideal. If the two rural hospitals with large population in Southeast Asia that adopt the Rockwell hardness tester for pipes can be equipped with advanced medical devices and equipment such as B-ultrasound, CT or high-definition X-ray machine, the sales volume of the Asian medical device market will be at least 15% higher than that now
