As China has a huge consumer group and the active support of the government, China's medical device market has a broad development space. As the incidence of tumors increases year by year, nearly 70% of cancer patients need to undergo different degrees of radiation therapy.
As China has a huge consumer group and the active support of the government, China's medical device market has a broad development space. As the incidence of tumors increases year by year, nearly 70% of cancer patients need to undergo different degrees of radiation therapy. In the future, with radiotherapy technology With the further development of China and the substantial implementation of policies to relax the allocation of major medical insurance, China ’s radiomedicine market will show accelerated growth. The Prospective Industry Research Institute predicts that the compound growth rate of the radiation medical industry is expected to remain at a level of 25% to 30% in the next 3 to 5 years.

Although China's medical device industry has undergone rapid development for more than ten years, the situation in which small and medium-sized enterprises are still in the industry has not changed. Low, small, and scattered are one of the important characteristics of China's medical device industry. The development of the industry still needs to rely on production technology. Continue to innovate and develop.

At present, China's fastener manufacturers have a large gap compared with foreign countries in terms of production technology, equipment level, production technology, etc. A large number of small enterprises in the industry mainly produce low-end products. Even large domestic enterprises lag behind developed countries in Europe and America in terms of product quality and performance.

Data show that in 2015, there were about 4.292 million new cancer cases and 2.814 million cancer deaths in China. According to statistics from the National Cancer Registration Center, there were 3.372 million new cancer cases in 2014, and about 2.2 million cancer deaths in China in 2012, showing an increasing trend year after year.

It is worth noting that according to medical statistics, 80% -90% of early cancers can be cured. According to the report of China's tumor registration database, about 60% of cancer deaths in our country can be prevented and avoided, higher than 30% -40% in developed countries. Therefore, early diagnosis with PET / CT diagnosis as an important means, supported by hospitals, medical examination centers and third-party imaging centers will become the main path of cancer prevention and treatment in China, and there is huge room for future development.

According to the Foresight Industry Research Institute's 2016-2021 China Medical Device Industry Market Forecast and Investment Forecast Analysis Report, there is a big gap between China's radiomedicine field and foreign mature markets. Countries with more developed economies and more advanced medical concepts have a higher proportion of patients using radiotherapy, of which 63% are in the United States and less than 20% in China. There are only 1.1 radiotherapy equipment per million people in China, which is 1/10 of the United States. China has a gap of 5 to 10 times in the per capita possession of radiotherapy and diagnostic equipment compared with international ones.

In addition, in the field of high-end medical devices, China's medical institutions have been importing more seriously. High-performance products such as nuclear magnetic resonance, CT and MI are mostly imported, and imported brands account for 70% of China's high-end medical equipment products. In 2015, for the transformation and upgrading of domestic medical equipment, policy parties issued a total of 18 documents, and national policies are paying close attention to the development of medical devices. This year's "two sessions" coincided with the beginning of the "13th Five-Year" plan. In the "13th Five-Year" plan for the pharmaceutical industry and medical and health fields, high-end medical equipment was listed as one of the key breakthrough areas in the next 5 years, affected by this, The prospect of high-end medical device investment is worth looking forward to. It is expected that high-performance medical devices such as large-scale imaging equipment and high-value medical consumables will become the focus of future policy support.

With the development of computer and network technology, informatization and networking in the medical field will be the future development trend of medical management. This trend will trigger the demand for imaging, digitalization and other sophisticated medical equipment. At the same time, the "Healthy China Construction Plan (2016-2020)" will become a programmatic document for the promotion of healthy China construction in the next five years. The medical industry-related industries and companies will usher in opportunities for rapid development, and the medical device industry will benefit significantly.
