According to MD&M West, the global medical device manufacturing market is expected to exceed $200 billion by 2025, largely due to an aging population, chronic disease and advancements in technology to help various conditions. Kyocera continues to use its unique ceramic “superhero” materials to help advance medical technologies. The Company’s Fine Ceramics provide a highly durable, long-lasting, non-reactive material that can be found in solutions for genetic sequencing; microfluidic tools; X-ray, PET, MRI and CT scan machines; pacemakers and cardiac monitors; neuromodulation devices; surgical tools; drug testing devices and orthopedic joint replacement systems. Information on these innovative ceramic medical solutions and more will be on display at Kyocera’s booth throughout the show.
Kyocera Corporation (TOKYO: 6971), the parent and global headquarters of the Kyocera Group, was founded in 1959 as a producer of fine ceramics (also known as “advanced ceramics”). By combining these engineered materials with metals and integrating them with other technologies, Kyocera has become a leading supplier of industrial and automotive components, semiconductor packages, electronic devices, smart energy systems, printers, copiers, and mobile phones. During the year ended March 31, 2021, the company’s consolidated sales revenue totaled 1.5 trillion yen (approx. US$13.8 billion). Kyocera is ranked #603 on Forbes magazine’s 2021 “Global 2000” list of the world’s largest publicly traded companies, and appears on The Wall Street Journal’s latest list of “The World’s 100 Most Sustainably Managed Companies.”
