Medical devices manufacturers have upped the ante on their own production and development in recent years as a response to the rising demand for modern medical instruments and innovations. This market is threatened by a range of factors that might impact output and the quality of several manufacturers.
Even small time is influenced by the dilemma today gripping the company world, despite the rise in demand decreasing together with quality and manufacturing output. It's because of this crisis a range of businesses which specialize in the production of equipment have chosen to outsource their manufacturing.
Another threat is the doom of patent laws' abolishment or recanting which protect the rights of medical device contract manufacturers. Having a lack of rights to patent their products, competition will instantly be able to grab on another ‘hot' product (s) and gain from it.

Not that this is always a bad thing, but it does open a huge probability that the market as we know it now is going to be saturated with second-rate products which are either faulty or of low caliber, thus endangering the reputation and dependability of several top-notch manufacturers.
Too much competition will cost businesses money in attempting to counter competitors by means of propaganda and adverts, in effect while competition is inevitable. With the new wave of products healthcare industries are willing to try them out, but with the rates that are exorbitant, they are facing the age crux of quality versus quantity that is desired.
