Medical Device Sector Overview

We are incredibly passionate about recruiting in the medical devices industry. The Medical Devices market is innovative, exciting and offers exceptional opportunities for evolving career careers.

The World Health Organization (WHO), considers a medical device to be defined as “an article, instrument, apparatus or machine that is used in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of illness or disease, or for detecting, measuring, restoring, correcting or modifying the structure or function of the body for some health purpose.”

Medical devices are classified into various groups, that can differ from country to country. Within the EU, they are classified as:

Class I Medical Devices

Considered to be at the lowest level of risk of all medical devices and, as a result, their compliance level is the lowest level of regulatory control. Products at this level will include elastic bandages, `dental floss and enemas.

Class IIa / Class IIb Medical Devices

Although this refers to a relatively simple device, they are more complicated than Class I devices and therefore require more stringent regulatory controls to provide assurance of their effectiveness and safety. Typical Class II devices include: condoms, pregnancy testing kits and powered wheelchairs.

Class III Medical Devices

These medical devices are the most complex devices and, as such, they carry the highest patient risk and require the most stringent regulatory controls. Examples of Class III devices include: implantable spinal supports, pacemakers and breast implants.

The medical device industry is one of the largest and moist regulated industries in healthcare, driven by innovation and new technologies. According to The Market Realist, 

“The last decade has seen an unprecedented growth in innovative and improved medical technologies, which has led to the development of state-of-the-art medical devices and catalysed growth and advancement in the healthcare industry”.


Currently, around 40% of the Global Market is owned by US based organisations, with the industry as a whole carrying a value of around USD 425.5billion and is forecast to grow to USD 612.7 billion by 2025. The major players in this industry include; Johnson & Johnson, Boston Scientific, Globus Medical, BrainLab, GE, Medtronic (MDT), BD and Stryker.

Why choose a career in Medical Devices?

Thanks to many recent advancements in medical technologies people are living longer than ever and, in this modern-day, people are expecting to get much more out of those extra years. As a result, the demand for innovative health care products is continuing to grow exponentially.

The field of medical devices is a place where creative people are encouraged to invent, develop and deliver life-improving and often life-saving technologies aimed to benefit the population and get the best out of our lives; who wouldn’t want to be a part of that!
