Nuggets medical semiconductor market manufacturers how to respond
according to market research organization ESPICOM, the global medical equipment market will exceed US $200billion in 2010, of which medical electronics will account for 45%, reaching US $90billion. The huge market prospect and stable return have attracted the investment of many manufacturers. From semiconductor manufacturers to EMS and OEM companies, they are looking forward to mining gold from the medical electronics market. So, what is the reason for the rapid development of the medical electronic market? What is the reason why portable medical electronic equipment has become the largest application market of medical semiconductors? Facing the small batch and high-quality supply requirements in the medical electronics market, how should the world's leading semiconductor manufacturers respond
multiple factors boost medical electronics
for the medical electronics market, multiple factors such as technological progress, health demand, price decline and stable return promote the continuous development of the market. With more and more semiconductor manufacturers joining in, the medical semiconductor market also shows a development trend higher than the average growth rate of the global semiconductor market
the growth of health demand and the development of technology complement each other. As stevekennelly, senior strategy and product marketing manager of the medical products division of microchip, said in an interview: "Now, the medical electronic equipment market is experiencing unprecedented rapid development. Among them, technological innovation in two aspects has become a driving force that cannot be ignored. On the one hand, biomedical research has made great progress in the decryption of human physiology and confirmed potential new therapeutic and diagnostic instruments; on the other hand, the development of electronic technology has helped people successfully manufacture these new devices. Therefore, medical applications have been successful It is one of the fastest growing fields in the semiconductor market. "
the technological progress of semiconductor industry has become an important factor to promote the rapid development of medical electronics industry. Xu Yong, chief analyst of Gartner Asia Pacific semiconductor research group, a market research company, said that in the past 10 years, semiconductor technology has developed rapidly. The development of diversified products such as standard integrated circuits and programmable logic devices and the application of double support column domain in the host of sjbw-cd microcomputer controlled ultra-low temperature impact testing machine lead to the semi mature stage of the medical electronics industry. There are two trends in the arrival of this stage. One is the decline in the price of medical electronic products, which makes it affordable for ordinary people; Second, the fact that developing countries have mastered the manufacturing technology of medical electronic products has further contributed to the decline in the price of medical electronic products
at the same time, the medical electronic market has high requirements for security. Xu Yong said that the cycle from product research and development to certification is very long. Unlike toys, consumer electronics and other products, once there is a problem, it will need to bear a lot. Therefore, the medical electronics market is a stable market, which is not as easy to form a foam and burst quickly as consumer electronics. Although the investment return period of this industry is long, it may provide participants with more stable and lasting returns than other commercial fields. After the sale of the semiconductor business, Philips Group President and CEO Ke Cilei said: "With the completion of this transaction, we have in fact completed the transformation to a more robust and economically profitable business, away from the income fluctuations generated by cyclical industries such as components and semiconductors, thus completing our journey from 2002. The company will focus on developing into a company with medical care and fashionable life as the core."
portable medical products have become popular
databeans said that factors such as the aging of the global population, the improvement of people's living standards and the increase in the demand for medical services in remote areas are promoting the reform of traditional medical methods, and mobility and portability have gradually become the key factors affecting the medical electronics industry. On the other hand, the development of semiconductor technology promotes the pace of medical innovation to move forward at an unprecedented speed. Driven by the rapid processing and calculation, the high-precision we universal data experimental machine is equipped with a set of collet analog-to-digital conversion with different shapes and sizes, and the progress of wireless network technology, the portable and miniaturization of medical electronic products has become a realityBefore the thermal conductivity of
mesh, the portable medical electronic equipment market has been growing at a double-digit rate, and this trend will continue in the future. Portable medical electronic equipment is mainly divided into four application parts: diagnostic equipment, drug delivery equipment, personal care products and imaging system, including cholesterol, blood condition, blood pressure detection, glucose meter, pulse oximeter, AED, insulin injection pen, digital hearing aid, CT scanner and X-ray detector. Among them, it is expected that the home diagnosis market will account for about 50%, and among the remaining 50%, imaging products account for 25%, while modified materials such as Geon bio are their core business, and diagnosis or treatment electronic products account for 25%
stability, high precision and strong anti-interference ability are the main requirements of portable medical electronics for semiconductor devices. Johndicristina, marketing strategy director of Maxim, said in an interview that portable medical electronic devices require semiconductor solutions to have some or all of the following characteristics: low operating voltage, low power consumption, miniaturized packaging, high integration, high precision and consistency. He explained that if medical electronic products are powered by batteries, low operating voltage and low power consumption are critical; If medical electronic products are hand-held or portable, miniaturized packaging is necessary to provide users with appropriate product size. For some mass applications, in order to obtain low cost and high reliability, high integration is necessary. In order to ensure that many medical products can better control the safety and health of patients, high precision and product consistency are very important
