China's Changing Medical Device Exports


                                 Mihir  P. Torsekar'

    Abstract

    During the early years of the period 2001-16, the majority of China's medical
    device exports were low-technology goods. However,  the composition of these
    exports has gradually shifted towards medium-and-high-tech devices. Since 2012,
    these goods have become  China's leading medical device export categories. This
    article discusses two factors behind this trend: (1) the country's large and growing
    healthcare market, which has created opportunities for local producers to supply
    all segments within the sector, and (2) government policies that have prioritized
    the production of innovative medical devices from local companies.
