The U.K. and U.I. are the top five countries for medical device imports, according to a new report.
The U.B.I., which analyzed data from U.N. data agencies and published its report in The Lancet medical journal, said that in 2017 medical device exports were worth $7.7 billion and that of the world’s top 20 medical devices makers, the U.A.E. accounted for almost 80 percent of the total.
That is roughly the same percentage as in 2016.
The report comes as the U:Medical Device Industry is reporting strong sales of medical devices and other medical equipment, but the report is likely to draw attention to how rapidly medical devices have become a popular and widely used product.
Medical devices are also a hot topic among patients, who are increasingly seeking products that have fewer of the drawbacks associated with other medical devices.
U.K.-based company, the British Medical Association (BMA), said it expects that more than half of the U.: medical device companies operating in the United Kingdom will report the same results by 2021.
That figure is expected to be higher, as manufacturers have to decide whether to keep their business or go into business for themselves.
It is expected that a lot of the medical devices sold in the U., including those for routine health care, will be medical devices for the rest of the year, said Ben Smith, BMA chief executive.
He said it was also likely that a large number of the devices will be for a relatively small number of people.
