The report provides the medical device industry and its service providers with a new resource for their clinical development activities.

The medical device industry, as significant as it is, has been inadequately served by the research and analysis community, explained Andrew Schafer, President of ISR. Our analysts have conducted an exhaustive review of this industry to quantify the development market size, profile the past two years of device trials, and profile 15 medical device manufactures who have been active on the development front.

As part of the analysis, the report provides the industry with benchmarking data from over 7,000 on-going and recently completed medical device studies. These metrics quantify the number of trials conducted year-to-year, average trial duration, average subject enrollment figures, and identify sponsor and funding sources. The data are analyzed at multiple levels including industry wide, by Phase of development, and by study type (interventional, observational, and expanded access).

CROs with a strategic focus on medical devices often struggle to quantify the size of this market and, as a consequence, the opportunity available to their organizations. With ISR's sizing of the market for industry-sponsored device trials through 2015, we're confident this report gives them the data they need for better planning and forecasting, Schafer continued.
