Medical Devices Vigilance Market 2022 driven by Increasing number of medical equipment owing to increase in number of hospitals

Medical device refers to wide range of products right from diagnostic medical devices used in diagnosis of diseases, and abnormalities to therapeutic medical devices with applications including tissue cutting, wound covering, or closing open clogged arteries, to highly complex and mechanized medical equipment. Owing to their wide variety and critical importance for therapeutic treatment and care of the patient, it is increasingly important to regulate the manufacturing, functioning and distribution process to ensure their quality, safety, and efficient functioning. Medical device vigilance or materiovigilance, is the collection, evaluation, reporting, quality check and recognition of the condition of the devices resulting from their use. Medical device vigilance aims to protect the patients, healthcare facilities utilizing medical devices and others by preventing or reducing the occurrence of errors leading to harmful incidents and adverse effects. The detection of technical issues and potential adverse effects associated with medical devices is monitored by medical device vigilance.  This post-market surveillance of medical devices was initiated by Food and Drug Administration with the enactment of the Modernization Act 1970 in the United States.

In April 2017, the South Korean regulatory authority Ministry of Food and Drug Safety (MFDS) launched ‘Harmful Medical Device Distribution Shutdown System’, a new recall system for medical devices. Furthermore, the rising tension on medical devices manufacturers to produce defect free devices as the patient lives are at stake, growing awareness among people pertaining to availability of medical device vigilance software and reporting of adverse events and stringent mandates of safety regulation post commercialization of medical devices by various regulatory authorities around the world such as U.S. FDA, Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and European Commission (EC) would potentially fuel the market growth. Thus, growing complexity and implementation of strict patient safety regulations is expected to amplify the growth of medical devices vigilance market.
