Medical Devices: Using Market Research to Find Growth Areas

Few industries will be challenged in the coming years like the medical device industry. Many observers project that the overall medical device market may suffer from reduced profits, less venture capital spending, and R&D due to the double-effects of a new excise tax in the United States and reimbursement cuts in world markets.
