Medical technology and medical device manufacturers

Medical devices are of central and continuously growing significance in healthcare. The medical technology sector is highly innovative and constitutes an important economic factor. Approval, market entry and financing of medical devices are highly regulated—similar to drugs. Strong international competition and increasing complexity of statutory requirements present major challenges to the producers.
