The medical device testing market is expected to reach $12.5 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period of 2020 to 2027

Healthcare technology and medical devices are constantly evolving to improve accuracy, patient safety, and wellness. The dynamic progress in the sector leaves medical devices increasingly susceptible to quality, safety and cybersecurity issues. Medical Device testing ensures the product’s software and hardware are compatible and compliant with the associated regulations and functionality. These devices are subjected to compliance with strict regulatory protocols, as it is essential to ensure the safety and efficiency of medical devices. Thus, it is mandatory for every device to comply with national and international standards before entering the market. The standard guidelines for medical devices vary from country to country, and it is mandatory for every manufacturer to follow these guidelines for marketing or selling their products in a respective country. For instance, the U.S. follows Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines, Europe considers the Conformitè Europëenne (CE) approval, Canada needs Health Canada Registration, and India requires approval from Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO). Such a diverse range of regulatory landscape urges medical device manufacturers to incorporate local testing and certification processes, thus driving the growth of the medical device testing market.
