India is undergoing significant development in medical device manufacturing, driven by strong government support throughout the conceptualization, inception, and development stages. This growth has been fuelled by initiatives like “Make in India” and the vision of an “AtmaNirbhar Bharat” (self-reliant India), which have provided impetus to the industry. With the integration of AI and machine learning technologies, India has made remarkable progress in the development of domestically manufactured robotic surgery systems. These advanced systems have revolutionized surgical procedures by enhancing precision, efficiency, and accessibility. By leveraging 3D printing technology, India has also made significant strides in producing customized medical devices, prosthetics, and anatomical models. These innovations have facilitated surgical planning and training and contributed to the overall advancement of healthcare in the country. The growth of the medical device industry in India is particularly evident in the class I devices segment. Numerous Indian companies have experienced rapid expansion and have even ventured into foreign markets. This trend is exemplified by the success of hemostatic dressings and wound care devices, where Indian manufacturers have developed high-quality products that have gained recognition globally. While India was traditionally known as the “global pharmacy” for its production of generic pharmaceuticals, it is now making its mark in the medical devices industry by offering innovative and reliable devices on the global stage. The government’s unwavering support and the emphasis on self-reliance have fostered a favorable environment for the growth of India’s medical device manufacturing sector.
