The China Market for Medical Device Contract Manufacturing


China is a leading supplier of contract manufacturing services for medical devices. While contract service suppliers are spread across the country, specific provinces have gained a prominent position within certain medical device application areas. For example, Fujian has a large number of establishments proficient in anesthesiology device applications.  Zhejiang is big in toxicology. Guangdong has a strong history with surgery device companies, while Beijing is home to several providers of contract services for physical medicine products.



China consists of 4 Municipalities, 23 Provinces, and 5 Autonomous regions. Medical Device Product and Service suppliers are spread across the provinces unevenly, with the number of companies located within a particular province ranging from over a thousand to less than ten. Sixty-five percent of the more than five thousand medical device companies located in China and listed in the FDA’s Establishment Registration database are within three provinces.
