The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly affected the development and deployment of these devices in the U.S. The restrictions imposed during the pandemic led to the postponement or cancellation of non-essential and elective procedures such as dental, orthopedic, and ophthalmic surgeries.

  • For instance, a study published by LAC+USC Medical Center revealed that during the initial wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, the average surgical case rate for elective colorectal procedures declined to approximately 2.4 patients/week from an average of 9.2 patients/week in the previous two years. This decline indicates a 74% relative decrease.

Medical device manufacturers providing medical equipment for elective procedures such as diagnostic imaging and dental procedures witnessed a considerable decline in revenues for 2020 as compared to 2019.

  • For instance, according to Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. statistics 2020, surgery device sales were USD 8.20 billion in 2020, a decrease of 13.4% from 2019. The decline in advanced surgery was attributed to the negative impact of COVID-19.

However, the increasing patient pool for COVID-19 diagnosis led to increasing adoption of COVID-19 tests compared to decreasing routine IVD tests such as diabetes and cancer screening in 2020. Furthermore, after the pandemic, routine tests regained substantial growth coupled with high demand for COVID-19 tests. Thus, these cumulative factors propelled the in-vitro diagnostics segment share in 2021.

Similarly, leading industry players in the manufacturing of in-vitro diagnostic devices and devices in other segments, such as beds, gloves, masks, respirators, and other hospital supplies, witnessed high demand for these products in 2020 and 2021.

  • For instance, Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. generated a revenue of USD 39.21 billion in the financial year 2021, with a growth of 22.0% compared to USD 32.22 billion in 2020. The growth was attributed to high sales of IVD devices during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Moreover, in 2021, to re-establish the country's manufacturing potency, the U.S. government focused on building strong supply chains across the globe. Similarly, high product approvals, the introduction of technologically advanced devices, and the rising demand for home healthcare devices propelled the market growth in 2021.

  • For instance, in May 2022, GE Healthcare entered the homecare segment with a strategic investment of USD 50 million in Pulsenmore, an Israel-based company. The investment aimed to accelerate the adoption of Pulsenmore’s homecare ultrasound solutions.
