Nine of the world's 10 largest medical device companies have operations in Ireland. Examples of global companies with substantial operations include Abbott, Bayer, Becton Dickinson, Boston Scientific, Johnson & Johnson, Guidant, Medtronic and Stryker. The sector employs over 32,000 people in 300+ companies and generates sales in excess of Eur6 billion annually. Over half of the medical technologies companies based in Ireland have dedicated R&D facilities. This continued investment has stimulated the emergence of an indigenous cluster of over 100 innovation-led companies along the entire Medtech value chain - from R&D intensive technologies, to proprietary products, contract design and manufacturing, packaging and sterilisation. This has positioned Ireland as a world-class centre of excellence for medical devices.
