Market Trends

Artificial Intelligence

AI replaces traditional, labor-intensive, and time-consuming healthcare processes with fast, remotely accessible, real-time solutions for diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease. To unlock the full potential of AI, healthtech companies offer software platforms, application programming interfaces (APIs), and other digital products. Medical diagnostics enhanced surgical support, and clinical workflow management is examples of how artificial intelligence is being used in the healthcare industry.

The Internet of Medical Things

IoMT enables the development of devices that require little or no human interaction to deliver healthcare services. Multiple applications such as automated disinfection, intelligent diagnostics, and remote patient care are enabled by connected medical devices, equipment, and infrastructure. For real-time disease diagnosis, monitoring, tracking, and control, the cognitive IoMT (CIoMT) subtrend integrates sensory data, automatic processing, and network connection.


As a result of the COVID-19 epidemic, the rate at which many governments, healthcare systems, doctors, and patients are adopting telemedicine is accelerating. Governments released telemedicine guidelines to relieve pressure on healthcare institutions as a response to the pandemic. Telemedicine frees up facilities and reduces the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) because medical professionals can communicate with patients via telecommunications.

Telehealth services are being developed by health tech entrepreneurs to support public health mitigation initiatives by increasing social distancing. Additionally, telemedicine distancing provides remote care for older patients frees up bed space, and saves money on medical supplies.

Analytics & Big Data

Digitalization is transforming the collection and storage of medical data, diagnostic methods, treatment planning, surgical processes, remote patient monitoring, and consultation. In the upcoming years, it is anticipated that the amount of health and medical data would grow tremendously. Big data and analytics are used by MedTech companies to assess the amount of unstructured medical data generated by MedTech. It enhances patient-centered services, finds diseases early, and produces fresh understandings of how diseases workunderstandinghnologies also make it possible for better treatment techniques and assess the effectiveness of procedures at healthcare facilities.

Integrated Technology

The healthcare industry is increasingly using immersive technologies such as AR/VR and MR. Applications for VR in healthcare range from helping with cognitive and physical rehabilitation to exposure treatment for anxiety disorders and rehabilitation therapy. Additionally, AR and VR are crucial for medical education. Immersive technologies are used in surgery as well, for example, to protect patient data, holographic visuals, and scans throughout the procedure.

Mobile Health (mHealth)

Digital solutions and connected devices are used by mHealth technology to enable access to personalized information. Visualizing health challenges that deter patient commitment is made possible by mobile devices. Healthcare is becoming more equitable and accessible with smartphone-connected wearable sensors, point-of-need diagnostic tools, and medical imaging with real-time data streams that are not bound by geographic boundaries.

mHealth technology plays a key role in containing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic by providing contact tracing, surveillance, quarantine management and management, testing and dissemination of relevant information, and immunization cycle tracking and notification has been fulfilled.

Market Drivers

The market for medical devices in Vietnam was worth USD 1,832.49 million in 2021 and is anticipated to expand at a constant CAGR of 12.27% over the following five years. During the forecasted years, this is predicted to develop rapidly. 

The increased geriatric population in Vietnam is a major driver of the medical devices market there. Additionally, expanding cooperation with nations like South Korea, Germany, Italy, etc. is another crucial factor promoting the development of this market. In Vietnam, 10% of the supply comes from local marketplaces, and 90% of the demand is satisfied by imports. These factors are anticipated to positively impact market expansion.

The Growing Aging Population

In Vietnam, the population is aging at a faster pace than the birth rate, which hastens the aging process. Vietnam’s population is aging at the fastest rate in the Asia-Pacific region. An aging population will have an effect on the sector because those over 60 are more likely to get sick. Doctors need medical equipment to diagnose and treat sick patients.

Growing Medical Tourism

Vietnam offers excellent potential for the growth of medical tourism. The political stability of Vietnam, the accessibility of healthcare, and the general good quality of medications are promoting the rise of medical tourism in Vietnam, which will further the market’s expansion. The demand for medical equipment for diagnosis and treatment will rise as a result of the growth in medical tourism, professionals, and hospitals.

The Increase of Chronic Diseases

Both the elderly population and chronic illness prevalence are rising. As a result, deaths have increased. In order to avoid this, the Vietnamese government is expanding the number of hospitals that need medical equipment to detect serious illnesses.

Market Restraints

Supply Chain Problems

During the pandemic, demand has decreased for various products, including those used during elective surgical procedures. Orders for goods including masks, gloves, infrared thermometers, PPE kits, and testing kits increased during the pandemic.

Medical device manufacturing has also been affected by coronavirus supply chain disruptions. Delays in deliveries and rising material costs have been causing issues for businesses. The market will continue to face challenges from disruptions and changes in supply pricing until the concerns with the global supply chain are resolved.

Supply Uncertainty

Supply chain issues and inventory uncertainty go hand in hand. Over the last few years, we have seen the impact of the pandemic on supply chains. Other factors can also hurt supply, such as labor unrest, armed conflict, natural disasters, transportation issues, and unexpectedly increased demand for raw materials.

Complex manufacturing regulations and standards

The following are a few guidelines and rules for manufacturing that apply to companies that make medical devices:

ISO 13485

The makers of medical devices are the target market for this quality control system. Businesses that adhere to ISO13485 standards have enhanced their risk management, quality assurance, traceability, and process validation. Access to overseas markets would be made simpler for manufacturers who maintain compliance. Your business can become more effective, risk-averse, and profitable by streamlining its procedures and adhering to compliance regulations.

21 CFR 820

A regulation for quality systems is included in Title 21, Section 820 of the Code of Federal Regulations. It comprises specifications for how medical device manufacturing facilities must develop, produce, buy, label, and store their products. The legislation also covers the installation and maintenance procedures for medical equipment. To ensure compliance with this law, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspects manufacturing sites.

The EU Medical Device Regulation

Devices are now reclassified under higher risk classes, and makers are required to follow tougher guidelines. The European Union has 23 official languages, and information on packaging for devices headed for Europe is provided in that language. Depending on where their shipments are going, manufacturers must assume the obligation and cost of supplying the relevant information in the right languages.

Shortage of Skilled Workers

For many industries, finding qualified staff is a considerable barrier. Finding the workers that manufacturers need to fill available positions is difficult.

Industry Week asserts that the labor shortage is neither caused by the Baby Boomer population retiring or by workers quitting their employment out of fear of contracting COVID-19. The median age of the workforce would be rapidly declining if these factors were a factor. Rather, it fell slightly from 42.5 years old in 2020 to 42.2 years old in 2021.

More freedom and a better work-life balance were mentioned as reasons given by departing employees for leaving their positions. Additionally, many said they wanted chances to work from home when available.
