  On December 28, the website of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology showed that recently, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Health Commission, the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Finance, the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council, the State Administration of Market Supervision, the State Medical Insurance Administration, the State Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 10 departments including the State Food and Drug Administration jointly issued the "Fourteenth Five-Year" Medical Equipment Industry Development Plan (hereinafter referred to as the "Plan").

  The relevant person in charge of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology stated that medical equipment is an important material basis for medical treatment and health, and it is directly related to the life safety and physical health of the people.

During the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the National Health Commission and other relevant departments will strive to improve the policy system, increase support, and give full play to the enthusiasm of scientific research institutions, the medical equipment industry, and the medical system to promote my country's medical equipment The industry has achieved rapid development. The market size has increased from 480 billion yuan in 2015 to 840 billion yuan in 2020, with an average annual compound growth rate of 11.8%.

The manufacturing system is basically sound, forming a product system of more than 1,100 categories in 22 categories, covering all aspects of health, and basically meeting the needs of medical institutions in my country for diagnosis and treatment, elderly care, chronic disease prevention and emergency rescue.

The main body of the enterprise has developed and grown. In 2020, there will be more than 2,300 enterprises above designated size, realizing more than 410 billion yuan in main business income. In the Pearl River Delta, Yangtze River Delta and Bohai Rim regions, a group of leading enterprises with strong competitiveness and distinctive characteristics have been formed my country has become an important global medical equipment manufacturing base.

  The "14th Five-Year Plan" period is a critical period for comprehensively advancing the construction of a healthy China and for in-depth implementation of the strategy of making a strong nation. It is also a critical period for advancing the high-quality development of the medical equipment industry.

The development of my country's medical equipment industry faces both major opportunities and major challenges.

On the one hand, a new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial reforms are advancing in depth, and the integration of manufacturing and new-generation information technology is accelerating, bringing new opportunities to the development of medical equipment.

At the same time, the global "big health" and "big health" industries are developing rapidly, and the medical service model has changed from disease medical services to "disease + health" medical services, from in-hospital diagnosis and treatment to pre-hospital family health management, inter-hospital resource sharing, and post-hospital The continuous service direction of rehabilitation is extended and expanded, and there is huge room for the development of the medical equipment industry.
