Since incorporation, MediTech LLC has achieved the following milestones:

Industry Analysis

The medical industry is dependent on the access to high-quality medical devices and products. From gloves and masks to EKG machines, every device used in the care of patients needs to be high quality and always in working order. Devices that are poor quality or don’t work properly can cause significant problems when being used to care for patients.

Medical devices are categorized into three classes. Class I devices are devices that pose very little risk to the user. These items include bandages, surgical instruments, and gloves. Class II devices are intermediate risk devices. These include intravenous pumps and CT machines. Class III devices are high risk and require a great amount of regulation. These devices are also critical to sustaining life. These include pacemakers and brain stimulators.

According to Fortune Business Insights, the medical device industry is valued at $539 billion and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9%. Medical devices are constantly in high demand and are essential for the success of the medical industry. Therefore, now is a great time to start a new medical device company.

Competitive Analysis

Direct and Indirect Competitors

MediTech LLC will face competition from other companies with similar business profiles. A description of each competitor company is below.


Smith & Smith

Smith & Smith is a large corporation that sells thousands of products, including cosmetics, hygiene products, and certain medical devices. The medical devices they primarily produce include bandages, ointments, and low risk surgical and physician instruments. They sell many of their products to the general public (such as simple wound care devices) but also sell some devices to the medical industry. They will be a major competitor since they sell primarily Class I devices. However, they currently do not produce as many medical devices as MediTech LLC plans to produce, which gives us an advantage in the market.



MedMonitor is a medical device company that manufactures Class III medical devices. Some of their products include breast implants, pacemakers, implanted prosthetics, and defibrillators. They do sell some Class I and Class II products, such as gloves, wound care items, and surgical masks, but they are not a major manufacturer of these products. As such, we expect that MedMonitor will only be a minor competitor in the market.



MedSource is the source for most of the medical industry’s Class II medical devices. They produce a long list of devices including syringes, testing kits, contact lenses, and blood pressure cuffs. They do produce some products that can be categorized as Class I devices, but their product list does not overlap too much with ours. As such, we expect that MedSource will only be a minor competitor.


Competitive Advantage

MediTech LLC enjoys several advantages over its competitors. These advantages include the following:

  • Management: Sarah Nelson has been extremely successful working in the medical industry and will be able to use her previous experience to design and manufacture the best medical devices in the industry.
  • Relationships: Sarah knows many of the local leaders, business managers, and other influencers in the medical industry. These relationships will help her have access to quality materials and create an initial clientbase.
  • Affordability: Thanks to Sarah’s connections within the industry, we are able to access high-quality materials for our products for an affordable cost. As a result, we can price all our products more moderately than the competition.

Management Team

Sarah Nelson is a former surgeon who is familiar with the most popular medical devices in the industry. She knows better than anyone that low quality products means low quality care for patients. As a surgeon, she was often disappointed with the quality of the medical devices she used. Her hospital would routinely choose the cheapest options to save costs. This resulted in more problems and low quality care being delivered to her patients. She is now passionate about starting her own company that provides high quality medical devices for an affordable cost.

Though Sarah has never run a business of her own, she has worked in the medical industry long enough to gain an in-depth knowledge of the operations (e.g., running day-to-day operations) and the business (e.g., staffing, marketing, etc.) sides of the industry. She will also hire several professionals to help her run other aspects of the business she is unfamiliar with.
