Introduction

Study Goal and Objectives

This BCC Research market opportunity study provides an in-depth analysis of the relevant technical and economic drivers for the medical membrane device market by technology type, forecasting growth and trends in the various sectors over the next 5 years. The conclusions are illustrated with important statistical and analytical information on markets, applications, industry structure and dynamics, as well as technological developments.

Reasons For Doing This Study

This report is intended for those who require a thorough analysis of the medical membrane device industry. It contains significant developments, forecasts, and important trends, and it quantifies the various market sectors and profiles companies active in those areas. Because of the fragmented nature of the industry, it is difficult to find studies that gather extensive data from such diverse resources and evaluate it in the context of one comprehensive document. This analysis contains a unique collection of membrane device-related information that is difficult or impossible to find elsewhere.

Intended Audience

This study aims to provide those interested in investment, acquisition, or expansion in the medical membrane device industry with specific, detailed information crucial to making informed decisions. Senior marketing personnel, venture capitalists, executive planners, research directors, and government officials should find the report of value. Readers who simply wish to understand how regulations, market pressures, and technology interact in the medical membrane device arena also will find this study worthwhile.

Scope of Report

Five-year projections for market activity and value are provided. Industry structure, device applications and trends, pricing considerations, R&D, environmental influences, companies, and competitive technologies are included in the study. To simplify and focus on the most promising and clearly relevant technologies, the study concentrates on existing and potentially major uses of the technology. The membranes used in medical devices work in tandem with other materials and processes, adding critical functionality and value. To clarify the dynamic, the report addresses the membrane component of each sector in context with the market dynamics of the overall technology. The report includes comparison of costs for various membrane materials and devices. Current and potential market players are identified and examined.

INFORMATION SOURCES

Research for this report began with an in-depth analysis of technical and business literature, as well as a review of the history of the technology. Information from industry experts, company representatives, government researchers, and university scientists provided the basis for an assessment of the outlook for the medical membrane device industry. Secondary sources of information included product literature from membrane and device suppliers, scientific references, and patent searches.

The study is divided into key Chapters dealing with the structure and properties of five types of medical membrane devices, including critical components, manufacturing processes necessary for their final function, and their applications. The study emphasizes areas under research and the resulting trends. The report makes projections for each market in terms of constant 2009 dollars. Historical values are presented for the given year, with focus on the U.S. market. Overseas activity is briefly mentioned in order to put the U.S. market into the global context. Estimates of the membrane areas used in particular applications were obtained either from surveys or estimates from knowledgeable industry participants. Final analyses and projections are based upon a combination of a consensus among the primary contacts combined with BCC' s understanding of the impact of trends from a historical perspective.

The material presented in this report is based on information gathered from participants in the medical device industry and extensive reviews of secondary sources, such as business, scientific and industry publications, company literature, annual reports, SEC filings, patent literature, and online databases.
