NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- INTRODUCTIONAccording to the World Bank, more than 50,000 different types of

medical devices are currently being used every day in health care facilities worldwide. In 2018, the global medical devices market is estimated to reach a net worth of approximately USD 450 billion. Further, another study
estimated that the number of medical device related trials increased by 63% in the period between 2012 and 2016. However, a relatively larger proportion of device developers lack the required internal resources and technical expertise to conduct in-house clinical trials. Moreover, the costs associated with acquiring the necessary infrastructure / capabilities for such elaborate research initiatives are high; therefore, it is difficult for companies with limited finances to initiate and manage clinical studies by themselves. In addition, the implementation of highly stringent regulatory guidelines, specifically for devices posing medium to high risk to consumers, render them subject to rigorous quality assessments. The aforementioned challenges have led several players in the industry to outsource a significant part of their clinical stage research efforts to capable contract research organizations (CROs).Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05644017 In the foreseen future, the growing complexity of clinical trials and demand for reliable evidence on therapeutic benefits offered by various medical devices are likely to prompt more developer companies to outsource various aspects of their operations. The evolving practices have led a number of new players to enter the contract services domain. Moreover, in order to cope up with emerging technologies and the latest research trends, several legacy CROs are also re-evaluating their operational models and business strategies. In addition, the demand for integrated data platforms to manage and analyze vast amount of data, coupled with challenges associated with unstructured datasets and data privacy, has resulted in several collaboration and acquisition agreements between CROs and data management solutions providers. It is also worth highlighting that the industry has witnessed some consolidation in the last five years as smaller players have been acquired in an effort to widen the parent company's geographical reach.SCOPE OF THE REPORTThe 'Medical Device CROs Market, 2018-2030' report features a comprehensive study on the current landscape of contract research service providers focused on medical devices.

With more than 300 CROs focused on the development of medical devices, the market landscape is highly fragmented, featuring a mix of small-sized (<50 employees, 58%), mid-sized (50-200 employees, 23%), large-sized (200-1,000 employees, 14%) and very large-sized companies (>1,000 employees, 5%). Examples of established players (more than 1,000 employees, no selection criteria) include Charles River Laboratories, Chiltern, CMIC Group, Eurofins Scientific, FMD K&L, ICON, Medpace, NAMSA, Novella Clinical, PAREXEL International, Pharmaceutical Product Development (PPD), Promedica International, Syneos Health and WuXi AppTec.2. Most of the aforementioned CROs (82%) are based in North America and Europe. However, a relatively growing proportion of such players are situated in the Asia Pacific region, catering to the needs of emerging economies, such as China and India. Examples of companies that have recently (since 2015) entered the domain include (in alphabetical order, no selection criteria) 1MED, AccuLab Life Sciences, Axcent Advanced Analytics, Azelix, BioAgile Therapeutics, CarthoPharma, CTServ, dMed, dn8 collaborate, Dove Quality Solutions, Firma Clinical Research, MedQ Consultants, NOVO Consulting Group, Pepgra, Proxima Research, Remo CRO, RMF Clinical and Scope International.3. Close to 7,000 clinical studies for medical devices, having enrolled more than three million patients, were registered (ongoing / planned) across different geographies in the last five years alone. It is worth mentioning that, amongst others, cardiovascular disorders (12%) and oncological disorders (9%) have emerged as prominent therapeutic areas being targeted by medical device developers. Within cardiovascular disorders, indications, such as stroke and coronary artery disease, have emerged as prominent conditions, whereas in the case of oncology, breast cancer and lung cancer are presently the most commonly targeted indications.4. Over 35 mergers and acquisitions have taken place among stakeholders in this domain, during the period 2012-2018. Companies that were recently acquired include (in the chronological order of their acquisition) Hilbert Paradox (March 2018), MPI Research (April 2018), Fiver Corners (June 2018), Cobridge (September 2018) and DZS Clinical Services (September 2018).5. Driven by the growing technical and regulatory complexities related to medical device development, the demand for contract services providers is anticipated to increase in the coming years. Overall, we expect the market to grow at an annualized rate of 6.3% between 2018 and 2030. Contract services for clinical operations management currently captures a relatively higher (73%) share in the medical device CROs market. This trend is unlikely to change in the foreseen future. The rest of the market is distributed across data management (16%), regulatory (6%) and other types of services, including consulting, quality assurance, reimbursement and post-market surveillance.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05644017 About Reportlinker ReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
