INTRODUCTION
As of August, over 30 medical devices were approved by the US FDA alone, in 2019. Given recent technological advances and the increasing complexity of such products, the need for proper medical device labels has become a concern that is being addressed by both label manufacturers and regulators. In this context, it is worth highlighting that more than 10% of product recalls observed in this market are attributed to medical device labeling related issues. Labels ensure that a product is used according to the manufacturer’s instructions and also serve to protect the developer from litigation pertaining to off-label use / abuse of a marketed device. Over the years, medical device packaging and labeling operations have evolved significantly. Presently, a variety of novel label designs, equipped with advanced features (such as traceability, tamper-evident sealing provisions and environmental resistance), are available. In addition, there have been significant upgrades pertaining to medical device label materials and label printer technologies.

As the demand for innovative medical devices continues to grow, we believe that innovator companies are more likely to outsource certain aspects of their business operations, such as label manufacturing. Owing to the expertise and infrastructure required to develop and produce certain advanced types of pharmaceutical labels, the demand for contract service providers has increased substantially in this domain. Moreover, in order to cope up with the innovation in this domain, service providers are actively engaged in improving their core capabilities, procuring necessary certifications (such as ISO 13485), and optimizing business strategy. As a result, the industry has witnessed notable consolidation in the last five years, with many of the smaller players being acquired by more established businesses in efforts to augment the latter companies’ offerings.
