Medical Parts Manufacturing

Medical Parts Manufacturing is a rapidly growing market, estimated at $100 billion in sales in 2004. There is high demand for such orthopedic implant procedures, such as knee and hip replacements, especially as the “baby boomer” generation reaches retirement age.

Manufactured items include various surgical instruments used in medical operations, for example trocars (skin-piercing device), bone drills, and saws. There is a growing market for new surgical instruments, used for such operations or procedures as heart catheterization, abdominal surgery, liposuction, colonoscopy, etc.

Reliability and quality are critical in this industry. These parts must be high quality and the appearance is very important. A driving force in the industry today is to maintain quality but achieve customer’s cost reduction goals.
