The MedTech industry is unique in the Healthcare industry in that in addition to medical expertise requirements, innovators also need high-end engineering skills to deliver innovative products and technologies. A strong knowledge of the highly populatedÂ IP LandscapeÂ®Â is recognised as a key component of a company’s R&D and IP strategy, while aÂ Freedom to Operate (FTO)Â analysis may be even more important – and challenging – than in other technology fields.
The Medical Technology (MedTech) industry is experiencing a new era where the product development paradigm has been shifted by expanding technological possibilities, financial pressures of changing healthcare systems, the growth of emerging economies and an ageing population in developed economies, and a diverse policy environment. Innovative companies in the MedTech space are responding by accelerating the pace of new product development and converging technologies across fields.
