Products’ heterogeneity distinguishes the medical device sector, a fertile terrain for the development of several sciences and technologies that contributes to the complexity, but also enhances the output, of valuable research. Its industrial fabric is extensive: alongside a number of major firms there is a broad network of small businesses and technological start-ups. However the Italian market has contracted over the past years. Those firms least present in the international markets are the hardest hit: data highlights the good performance achieved by exports that supported production in recovering from the 2011 downturn.
