Estimated Revenues Continue to Rise For U.S. And Global Medical Device Markets
Palm Beach, FL – March 19, 2019 – The U.S. medical device industry has seen its revenues continue to increase and it is poised is to become the global leader of this expanding market. It seems as though each new projection breaks through the ceiling of the previous projection. Here are some of the estimated revenue projections: FORBES had called it: “… A disruptive market of $410 billion until 2023, changes dramatically with the entrance of small and medium size players, many of them rising up from the startup community. SelectUSA, a U.S. government-wide program led by the U.S. Department of Commerce, said: “The U.S. remains the largest medical device market in the world, with a market size of around $156 billion as well as representing about 40 percent of the global medical device market last year alone.” And Statista, as a leading provider of market and consumer data, one upped what FORBES had reported by increasing the 2023 figure from $410 billion to $566.3 billion and predicting that: “ In 2024, the total medical technology revenue globally is expected be nearly $600 billion U.S. dollars.” Active Healthcare companies in the markets this week include: Soliton, Inc.

Dermira, Inc. (NASDAQ: DERM) a biopharmaceutical company dedicated to bringing biotech ingenuity to medical dermatology by delivering differentiated, new therapies to the millions of people living with chronic skin conditions, recently announced positive results from a Phase 2b dose-ranging study of lebrikizumab, an investigational therapy, in adult patients with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis. All three doses of lebrikizumab met the primary endpoint, demonstrating greater improvements in the Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score compared to placebo. The safety profile for lebrikizumab observed in the study was consistent with prior studies evaluating this investigational therapy.
Lebrikizumab is a novel, injectable, humanized monoclonal antibody designed to bind interleukin-13 (IL-13) with high affinity, specifically preventing the formation of the IL-13Rα1/IL-4Rα heterodimer complex, which inhibits downstream signaling. IL-13 is believed to be a central pathogenic mediator that drives multiple aspects of the pathophysiology of atopic dermatitis by promoting type 2 inflammation and mediating its effects on tissue, resulting in skin barrier dysfunction, itch, skin thickening and infection.
Avinger, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVGR) a commercial-stage medical device company marketing the first and only intravascular image-guided, catheter-based system for diagnosis and treatment of patients with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), recently reported results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2018.

Pantheris fourth quarter revenue increased 18% quarter-over-quarter, with more than 65 of our Lumivascular centers now using the next-generation device. Feedback from the field continues to be excellent, with clinical results, product reliability and case volume all tracking positively for the next generation device.
