The scale of Chinese medical service market

After retrieving the National Statistical Information Center database guard Planning Commission, the latest "China Health Yearbook" is the "2013 China Health Statistics Yearbook" published in April 2014 (2013 data), in April this year, the "China Health Yearbook" and "China Population and Family Planning Yearbook "Yearbook of two co-edited" Chinese Health and Family Planning Yearbook "(2014 volumes, 2013 data), the current 2015 volumes (2014 data) still Compilation. 2013 Yearbook show that China's 2013 consumption of 3.2 trillion yuan of total health, maintaining a 17.2 percent compound annual growth rate in the past 9 years.

According to the State Planning Commission, David released "2015 January-April the National Health Service the situation" and "the end of April 2015 the number of institutions nationwide health", from January to April 2015, the national health care institutions amounted to 2.47 billion total clinic visits passengers, an increase of 3.3%; as of the end of April 2015, the national number of medical and health institutions of 985,000. These data indicate that a huge Chinese medical service market size and rapid growth rate.

However, with respect to the level of 7.7% of high-income countries, our health care spending accounted for only 5.6% of GDP, lower than the high-income and higher-income countries. Taking into account the huge population base and consumption, it is easy to see the future of China's medical services market there is still much room for growth. If health care spending accounted for 6.5% -7% can be achieved the goal of national health planning commission in the "" Healthy China 2020 "Strategy Report" put forward in 2020, then our health consumer market will reach 6.2-6.7 Wan scale billion.

The rapid growth in demand for medical services with respect to the pace of supply growth is extremely slow. 2013 total health consumption of 3.2 trillion yuan, 4.2 times in 2004; however, in 2013 the number of health institutions only 1.2 times in 2004, health personnel 1.5 times, 1.9 times the number of beds in health institutions. Supply of medical services far less, indicating that the market is still much room for development.

5, LED unlimited applications in the medical aspects of the decision of the medical market LED accomplish much.

Traditional long-term medical lighting are halogen lamp as the light source, and later began to use metal halide lamp as a light source. Halogen lamps, metal halide lamps are light in all directions, the whole space of the typical divergence divergent light. Compared with traditional medical lighting products, LED has inherent advantages in the realization of fixed point, directional lighting, high-intensity lighting, dimming control, to achieve high color, low spectrum damage, etc., can overcome the lack of a strong conventional medical lighting.

From the applications for, LED medical there are two types, one hospital general lighting, such as wards, offices and corridor using various lighting; the second is healthcare dedicated light source, such as: (1) peep lighting for lesion detection, observation lighting; (2) surgical lighting, LED operation shadowless lamp; (3) disinfection, sterilization radiation light source, the use of ultraviolet light for medical equipment, medical equipment and medical utensils disinfection and sterilization, high speed, high efficiency advantages ; (4) phototherapy - optical radiation therapy sources, the use of the biological effects of light with a specific wavelength of light so that the body skin or certain tissue cells or inhibiting the growth spawned long to achieve therapeutic purposes; (5) the pathological examination of the light source, with 570nm green light can be measured ESR, with 640nm and 900nm IR light ray can detect chlorine content of the blood, it can be diagnosed with a 488nm blue whether bladder cancer.

From the LED light source is, LED have many medical applications, such as: (1) ultraviolet light, can be sterilization, treatment of skin diseases, beauty, and so on; (2) infrared light, can in anti-inflammatory, analgesic, promote metabolism, etc. ; (3) Blu-ray, 425nm ~ 475nm range to treat neonatal jaundice, 446nm ~ 477nm range is conducive to enhancing the vitality of the human brain, and the like; (4) red light, can promote cell synthesis, and promote wound healing, treatment of many diseases ; (5) are mixed with white light, can satisfy different treatment needs, different color temperature of white light irradiation can be used to adjust the treatment of insomnia.

LED medical market potential, good prospects, it is obvious to see. However, LED medical technology high gold content, in order to do a good job is not easy. But the other way round, now is precisely the intense competition in the LED market is no technical gold products. So, we do not develop, to develop on the gold market from art to start. Moreover, in addition to medical care abroad LED giants, the current level of domestic enterprises is generally not high, I would like to develop still have a chance.
