Diversity in medtech: 2022 markedly the best for women in medtech

Diverse executive teams bring more innovation to medtech Diversifying the executive suite is more than just a push for representation — it helps bring more diverse ideas to the table to innovate for more than half of the global population.

Women hold just 23% of executive roles at the top 100 medical device companies, up 2 percentage points since 2021. After Accuray and Ambu appointed f…

What are the largest medical device companies?

Medtronic, Johnson & Johnson MedTech and Siemens Healthineers top the Big 100 list of largest medical device companies by revenue.

The 2022 edition of MassDevice and Medical Design & Outsourcing‘s Big 100 report also holds surprises.  Big conglomerates are spinning out medtech businesses as stand-alone companies, and that means changes to the list of 100 largest medical device companies.

Colfax, for example, engaged in business moves that turned DJO’s parent into Enovis, a large, stand-alone orthopedic device company that is No. 56 in 2022’s Big 100. ZimVie, formerly Zimmer Biomet’s spine and dental business, is 69th. And after decades under larger corporate umbrellas, Cordis debuts at No. 76 on the list.

We collected thousands of data points to size up the industry’s publicly traded companies and privately held firms. The Big 100 includes annual revenue, R&D spending, employee counts, key leaders, headquarters locatio…

The 100 largest medical device companies in the world

Nearly half a trillion dollars — $421 billion to be exact — that’s how much the world’s 100 largest medical device companies brought in over the past year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

That’s one of the big takeaways from the Big 100, MassDevice and Medical Design & Outsourcing‘s annual analysis of the worlds’ 100 largest medtech companies. (Check out the full Big 100 rankings here.)

Aggregate revenue for approximately 100 of the largest medical technology companies dropped 1.2% in 2020 compared to 2019. But that’s not bad considering that the worst pandemic in a century was taking place, sparking a global recession in its wake.

Some medtech businesses that played critical roles fighting the pandemic — such as 3M’s Health Care segment and Hologic — even saw revenues increase and rose in the Big 100 rankings as a result.

MedTech 100 roundup: Significant uptick for industry

The up-and-down nature of the medtech industry continues to carry through 2021, with a recent dip now followed by a rapid ascent.

MassDevice‘s MedTech 100 Index — which includes stocks of the world’s largest medical device companies — finished the week (June 11) at 109.63 points, producing a 2.5% rise from the 106.96-point mark set one week prior (June 4).

It provides a welcome sight after the industry’s progress came to a halt with a -1.4% dip the week before last. The index remains in a position to produce another upswing after demonstrating signs of picking up again when April brought the industry’s all-time best performance.

Even with setbacks that slowed the industry recently, medtech’s performance continues to reflect an overall rebound from the struggles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, too. The industry has registered a 18.8% rise from the pre-pandemic high of 92.32 (set on Feb. 19, 2020), plus a 76.5% increase from the mid-pandemic low…
