Massachusetts is home to the world’s largest concentration of medical technology innovation. The products of more than 420 medical technology companies in close proximity to each other, medical devices are the number 1 export from Massachusetts as a percentage of the state’s total exports (21% of Massachusetts total exports). Only California has more medical technology companies, employment, 510(k) approvals, venture capital, medical device patents or PMA approvals, and yet Massachusetts is 20 times smaller and has less than 1/6th the population of California. Mighty Massachusetts produces 15% of the total US medical device exports while comprising only ¼ of 1% of the total US land mass and 2% of its total population. Why is there such a heavily concentration of medical technology companies in and around Massachusetts? It may be the proximity to research hospitals like Mass General, Brigham & Womens, Harvard Medical School, Boston Children’s, UMass, Tufts, Dana Farber, as well as access to investors, top human capital/talent, the long history of commercial success or the abundance of experienced consultants and service providers.
