   At present, China's medical device industry has a market size of about 400 billion yuan, which is increasing at a rate of 20% per year. It is a veritable sunrise industry. "Feng Yubo, director of the China Biomedical Engineering Society, said on the 28th at the 2012 World Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering Congress".


   The "Technical promotion of health" theme was held in Beijing from May 26th to 31st. Top scientists and scholars in the biomedical engineering community from more than 80 countries and regions and scientific researchers from medical device companies are invited to attend the conference.


   Here, we learn new knowledge, form new hypotheses, plan new experiments, and develop new technologies for health care. At the same time build up friendship. ” International Medical and Biological Engineering Federation President Herbert · Dr. Eite said.


   Biomedical engineering is a new interdisciplinary discipline that integrates disciplines such as biology, medicine, and engineering. It is a powerful driving force for the development of modern medicine. From sphygmomanometers to robots, they are closely related to people’s lives.


   Biomedical engineering originated in Europe and the United States. In recent years, Asia, especially China, has rapidly emerged as an important force in this field. "Only from the relocation of the conference venue will be able to reflect that biomedical engineering is valued and enhanced in Asia in China." ” International Medical Physics and Medical Engineering Federation Chairman Barry & middot; Dr. Allen said.


   Professor Fan Yubo said that at present, more than 70% of China's high-end medical devices rely on imports. High-end knee joints and pacemakers are almost 100% dependent on imports.


   "We have not yet completely bid farewell to the history of a train's injector for an MRI device", importing high-end equipment and exporting low-end products. However, it should be noted that with the efforts in recent years, the import and export structure of medical devices in China is being optimized, and more and more mid-end products have been added to the ranks of exports. "Fan Yubo said.


   Taking Shenzhen Mindray Biomedical Electronics Co., Ltd. as an example, since its listing on the NYSE in the United States in 2006, it has insisted on investing 10% of annual sales in R&D. Now the products are exported to 196 countries and regions around the world, and overseas sales account for more than 60% of the company's annual sales.


   At present, there are 15,000 medical device companies in production and more than 300,000 in marketing. The rapid development of the industry has a strong demand for professionals.


   "More and more universities in our country set up this major. Due to the need to closely track the frontiers of biology, chemistry, materials, and other disciplines, the training of professionals is an urgent task. "Fan Yubo said.
