Rising Need for Medical Device Translation Services

    • 25% of medical devices produced in the US are exported, with diagnostics comprising the largest export sector.
    • Medical device exports have quadrupled over the last 15 years
    • Over half the medical devices firms state that their product development is driven by the prospect of overseas opportunities
    • The EU market is the largest export market for US medical device firms, accounting for 44% of US medical device exports
        • Top countries to which the US exports medical devices:
      • Germany (top European spender on healthcare)
      • Japan
      • Netherlands
