Medical devices sector initiative : performance indicators.: Iu44-135/1991E-PDF

"The 1990 Canadian medical devices market can be estimated at approximately $2.4 billion. About 85% of the products purchased by Canadian public hospitals and private institutions are imports. Demographic changes will translate into an increase in the demand for health care products and services. If the present level of import is maintained, the trade deficit in this industrial sector will keep expanding. In order to improve the situation, Industry, Science and Technology Canada (ISTC) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Medical Devices Canada (MEDEC) and is now in the process of launching a major medical devices sector initiative. … This report on Performance Indicators attempts to identify different sources of medical devices market statistics in Canada and abroad, and to analyze their completeness, relevance and timeliness in order to ensure that ISTC is not going to miss this major building block as the campaign unfolds"--Introduction, page 1.
