Trends Affecting Investment in the Medical Device Sector
Many healthcare trends could significantly affect the US medical device sector. The increasing elderly population, growing power of the middle class globally, and increasing healthcare consumerism are expected to change the way healthcare is delivered in the near future. Regulatory pressure due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and accompanying reimbursement pressure are making companies cut costs and research and development (R&D) investments. More consolidation in the healthcare provider and payer industries is shifting bargaining power to buyers of medical devices.
