The CPRJ Plastics in Medical Conference & Showcase, hosted by Adsale Publishing Ltd., was successfully held on October 18-19 in Shanghai, China. Hot topics about innovative materials and highly-efficient technologies for medical applications were discussed in details.

The Conference was greeted by 300+ professionals from the medical and plastics industries. Most of the attendees were the management of purchasing, R&D and production departments from enterprises of the supply chain.

In his welcome remarks, Paul Wang, Senior Purchasing Director, Shanghai MicroPort Medical (Group) Co., Ltd., said that with the increasing aging population in China, the healthcare industry and the medical device industry in China are promising.

Meanwhile, the recent US-Sino trade relationship proposed some opportunities for Chinese enterprises. The additional 5%-25% tariffs may ultimately increase the cost of manufacturers in the US. Therefore, the localization of medical device manufacture in China will speed up.

As an end-user company, Paul Wang emphasized that MicroPort Scientific Corporation is expecting high-quality but cost effective products and immediate response service from suppliers.

In the morning session, Xu Shan, Secretary-General of China Association for Medical Devices Industry presented the topic “The current outlook of the Chinese medical device industry and the recent policy implications”.

She commented that the global medical device market enjoyed a compound annual growth rate of 5.1% from 2016-2022. Europe, the United States and Japan accounted for nearly 90% market share of the global high-end medical device, while China, India, Russia, Brazil were developing at a remarkable rate.

"The innovations of medical device are moving towards artificial intelligence, 3D printing, mobile interconnection, the Internet of Things, big data, wearable technology, cloud data and analysis, block chain.” said Shan Xu.

Besides, Lin Senyong, Division Chief, Division of Medical Device Safety Inspection, Shanghai Municipal Food and Drug Administration, shared his views on the implementation of medical device registrant system in Shanghai.

He elaborated the innovative practice of medical device registration system in Shanghai and emphasized that IVD, high-value consumables, independent imaging centers, cancer treatment centers, medical robots, and home medical devices will be the fields of great potentials.

In his presentation, Stanley Leung, Stratasys Product and Applications Engineering Manager at Stratasys Shanghai Ltd., shed lights on how 3D printing can shape innovations in the medical sector. He said the trend of customized solutions for key applications is on the rise. In the medical device industry, biocompatibility certification of printing materials, or whether the material will be shielded by MRI, are the criteria for users when they make decisions.

The biological assessment of medical materials and products plays a crucial role in the supply chain. In his presentation, Dr. Jiang Hongyan, Senior Vice President of R&D Technical Support and Sharing, Shanghai MicroPort Medical (Group) Co., Ltd., said that it is particularly important to pay attention to the biosafety of medical polymer products. The timing of clinical exposure, the materials and processing methods will affect the biological risks.
