The Top 50!
In this issue we are running our list of the Top 50 Medical Device Companies. This
follows our previous reports on the Top 50 Pharma Companies and Top 50 Bio
This, of course, is just a snapshot at a moment in time. We expect a significant
amount of movement in the industry that will change the list between now and
2016. New combinations will include: Medtronic/Covidien; Zimmer/Biomet and
CareFusion; Smith & Nephew/Arthrocare; St. Jude’s expected purchase of Thoratec;
and J&J divesting Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics.
Now that we have completed the top 50 for the major sectors of our industry, we conducted a comparison
analysis. Some interesting statistics:
Top 50 ($451B of $820B)
for Medical Device, and $5B for Biotech.
( 42;of;50),;followed;by;Medical;Device;companies;( 35;of;50).;Pharmaceutical;companies
remained an even split, with 25 of the Top 50 increasing year-over-year revenues, and 25 decreasing.
