Patient aids and others is expected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period.

Key growth drivers of the market
• An increase in demand for new applications has led to the growth of medical technology market. For instance, improved surgical techniques and new implant materials for joint replacement (e.g., hybrid replacement method used in hip replacement surgery) are factors driving the growth of the orthopedic segment
• In India, non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are a major health problem. Diseases including cancer, obesity, and diabetes are on the rise as a result of factors such as a sedentary lifestyle and high stress levels. By 2025, NCDs would account for 75% of the disease burden in India. The significant increase in non-communicable diseases is driving demand in some key segments of the medical technology Market
