Its sales went up due to strong domestic demand.

The medical devices market in China will surpass $42b on the back of an increase in ageing population, technological advancements, and the development of clinic and hospital treatments, said analytics firm, GlobalData.

This accounted for 8.3% of the overall global medical devices market, added GlobalData.
