  • Detail

The medical electronic market continues to improve, and the cost performance of products is the most concerned.

in the next few years, China's medical electronic market will continue to grow rapidly. At the same time, products will develop towards digitalization, portability and household use. High cost performance products have attracted the attention of medical equipment enterprises

due to the "new rural cooperative medical care" policy and the export pull of domestic medical equipment enterprises, the compound annual growth rate of China's medical electronics market in the next few years will be higher than the global average. At the same time, China's medical electronic products are developing towards digitalization, portability and household use. If domestic medical equipment enterprises want to launch innovative devices that conform to the trend in the rapidly developing market, they must cooperate closely with semiconductor device suppliers in the process of R & D and design, select devices with appropriate cost and performance, and develop medical devices with higher cost performance ratio

policies and exports drive the growth of the domestic medical electronic market

the domestic medical electronic market is eye-catching. According to China's "Eleventh Five Year Plan", 2007 is the year when China's medical system reform was launched, and the pilot coverage of the "new rural cooperative medical care" was gradually expanded. It was launched nationwide in 2008, and the "new rural cooperative medical care" will achieve the goal of fully covering rural residents in 2010. Driven by this policy, the scale of China's rural medical market is expected to reach 40billion yuan in 2008. The "new rural cooperative medical care" policy is absolutely good news for China's medical electronic market

"the medical electronic equipment developed and produced locally in China can not only replace the more expensive imported medical equipment, but also be exported to other countries." Liang Xiaoming, product marketing manager of Xilinx Asia Pacific, told China electronic news. Therefore, in the next few years, China's medical electronics industry will usher in rapid development, and its growth rate will be much higher than the average growth rate of the global market

according to the data of Shanghai Chiang consulting company, the market scale of electronic medical devices in China reached 24.32 billion yuan in 2007, with a year-on-year increase of 16.3%, exceeding the growth rate of 13.3% in the global market. According to market research firm ESPICOM, the global medical equipment market will exceed US $200billion in 2010, of which medical electronic equipment will account for 45%, reaching a scale of US $90billion. From the perspective of the Chinese market, the compound annual growth rate of China's medical electronics market will reach 18.2% in the next few years. By 2011, the scale of China's medical electronics market is expected to be close to 50billion yuan

according to the statistics of the 2007 China electronic enterprise directory, the total export volume of China's medical electronics in 2007 was US $1.135 billion, with a year-on-year increase of more than 25.0%. In 2008, it reached US $1.41 billion, with a year-on-year increase of 24.2%. It is expected that the annual compound growth rate of China's total export volume of medical electronics will reach 29.5% from 2004 to 2008. At the same time, China's total import of medical electronics in 2007 was about 943 million US dollars, a year-on-year decrease of 4.6%. The report believes that from the second half of 2007, China's import and export of medical electronic products will have a surplus. Therefore, exports will drive the development of China's medical electronic market in the next few years

digitalization, portability and household use have become a hot spot in domestic demand.

for the overall demand characteristics of China's rapidly growing medical electronics market, Zhou Wensheng, senior business manager of Adeno semiconductor technology (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (ADI) in Greater China, said to: "The Chinese government has given a new mission to the Chinese medical system, that is, to expand medical coverage, so that as many people as possible can afford to see a doctor, and so that people in rural and remote areas can also receive timely and effective diagnosis and treatment. Therefore, we have reason to believe that digitalization, portability and household use are the focus of China's medical market growth."

similar to this view, Chen Bingwen, the market development manager of high-performance analog products in the Asia Pacific region of Ti, told China Electronics News that in the Chinese market, medical electronic products are mainly focused on large-scale medical devices. For example, many manufacturers are engaged in the production of MRI (nuclear magnetic resonance imaging), CT (computer tomography) and other equipment. In these fields, medical devices will develop in the direction of digitalization

in addition, with the upgrading of electronic products, the diagnostic results of these devices will become more and more accurate. At the same time, some manufacturers have also noticed that personal or household medical products, such as home blood glucose meters, blood pressure meters and heartbeat testing instruments, are developing rapidly. These instruments help people know their health status instantly. Nowadays, personal health care and medical supplies are developing in the direction of multi-function. Multi functional products integrating the measurement functions of blood pressure, blood glucose, heart rhythm, body temperature and so on have been put into use and will become the darling of the future market

Jin Yujie, senior product marketing manager of NXP semiconductor multi market Greater China, said that from the perspective of market development trend, portable and small computers will become the main development trend of Chinese enterprises, because these products can meet the strong demand of the rapidly growing rural medical, community medical and household medical markets. When it comes to specific product needs, he continued that portable medical devices and wireless transmission devices such as biochemical analyzers, sphygmomanometers, blood glucose meters, and pulse oximetry will be widely used as heat sealing sample saturation testers on the side, back, top, and bottom of packaging bags, wireless electrocardiographs, and remote monitoring

Liang Xiaoming analyzed the development trend of international enterprises and Chinese local enterprises. He said that international well-known medical electronic enterprises still occupy a large market share. At the same time, after years of hard work and accumulation, local enterprises are constantly improving product performance and gradually releasing market potential. The joint development mode of some local enterprises and foreign-funded enterprises is another prominent feature of China's medical market. Judging from the development trend of products, medical diagnostic products such as CT machines and MRI will still be the protagonists in China's medical electronics market, and the continuous optimization of the cost performance of such products will become a sharp weapon for manufacturers to compete for the market

eddiesuckow, field application engineer of Fairchild Semiconductor, also said: "we believe that the largest growth field in the market will be patient monitoring. Design companies, manufacturers and insurance companies should cooperate closely, and insurance companies generally fund the promotion and application of terminal products."

high precision and low cost are the key to market expansion

China's medical electronics market is widely favored, and an important reason for the smooth development of China's medical market in the next few years is that China's medical equipment enterprises have begun to cooperate closely with medical equipment enterprises in all aspects because of the considerable power of the electromechanical devices equipped with large flow pumps

in terms of close cooperation, hezisaar, senior manager of product market development of Actel company, told China electronic news that Actel worked closely with customers in the whole research and development and design process in the field of developing highly reliable programmable solutions that should Changping introduce 45 scientific research experts in three years for application devices that are not allowed to fail (called "system critical"). For example, in 2007, they worked closely with Mindray, a Chinese medical equipment development and manufacturer, to help Mindray develop an Actel based FPGA (field programmable gate array) portable monitor. This close cooperation prompted Mindray to plan to continue to adopt Actel's solutions in the new generation of products, including monitor equipment, diagnostic experimental instruments and ultrasonic imaging systems. "The cooperation between designers of medical application equipment and semiconductor suppliers is getting closer and closer, and the two sides will promote the development of the health care industry in an extremely close way." He said

in terms of meeting the demand characteristics of devices, Zhou Wensheng said that the products of Chinese medical equipment companies adopt different strategies according to their different target markets: the strategy of some medical equipment enterprises is how to improve the performance and quality of products to create or maintain the leading position of products; Other enterprises' strategy is how to increase market demand. These two strategies require semiconductor manufacturers to provide both higher precision devices and more cost-effective solutions, or even both

as for the performance requirements of new devices, Liang Xiaoming said that at present, the new requirements of Chinese medical equipment enterprises for devices are reflected in the following aspects: first, as the core algorithm component of the system, devices are used to complete the core algorithm with higher performance and more complex control; Second, support new standard interfaces, such as pciexpress (a new generation of bus interface), SATA (serial advanced technology attachment), Gigabit Ethernet and USB (Universal Serial Interface); Third, the overall low-power or low-power working mode; Fourth, flexible configuration and on-site upgradeability; Fifth, the integration of high integration.
