Understanding FDA Requirements Medical Devices


Published on

The medical device market is experiencing explosive growth. Currently valued at $90 billion, market growth will continue to accelerate as demographics and market drivers increase their pressure for new and innovative product offerings.

Moreover, a substantial investment of time and resources is required to properly evaluate a new product idea and estimate its potential for success. So when a company executive declines a seemingly good product idea, what is probably being declined is the expense of properly evaluating the idea, and after having paid these expenses, the prospect of embarking on an expensive commercialization effort that has a 90 percent chance of failing.
