This industry revolves around approximately 130,000 medical devices that are used in hospitals, clinics, physician’s offices, and alternate sites across the globe. This is a worldwide market that does $100 billion worth of business annually, 40% of which is done just within the United States.

There are around 700,000 jobs available in this field, in the American and European markets alone. These include both technical and non-technical (such as sales and administration) positions. The rapid expansion this industry has seen has lead to increased job availability, which is projected to result in a compound growth of 18% over the next five years, based on current trends.

The device industry can be broken down into ten major product groups: cardiovascular, dental, diagnostic, dialysis, minimal invasive, ophthalmic, orthopedic, implantables, electromechanical, and wound care.
