It is one of the most developed and productive sectors of the state’s burgeoning manufacturing economy.  In terms of volume, the Baja California Medical Device Cluster ranks number 7th globally in the quantity of its output.

One of the principal reasons why the medical device industry has experienced such a positive growth trajectory in Baja California is the fact that a Medical Device Cluster organization was formed in the state in 2005.  The organization supports companies in ways that serve to elevate their level of industrial competitiveness in the global marketplace.

The Baja California Medical Device Cluster is composed of key representatives of manufacturers in the industry and their suppliers, as well as individuals from academia and relevant government agencies.  With the support of this organization, the medical device cluster in Baja California currently has grown to be the source of 50% of Mexico’s overall production.

Currently, Baja California is home to 75 manufacturers of world-class medical devices.  Of this number 50 companies are formally affiliated with the industry cluster organization.  These companies have generated approximately 71,000 direct labor jobs and have boosted the economies of the cities of Tijuana, Ensenada, Mexicali, and Tecate.

Some of the items manufactured in Baja California include pacemakers and their batteries, ophthalmic lenses, wheelchairs, catheters, defibrillators, urinary bags, electric thermometers, and many others.  Baja California-based companies export these products to all corners of the globe.  The main international customers of the Baja California medical device sector are the United States, England, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand.


The medical devices manufactured in Baja California are produced under the auspices of the ISO 13485 international quality standard.  This is because safety and quality are non-negotiable points in the medical device industry.

Companies in the Baja California Medical Device Cluster organization abide by regulatory requirements that are increasingly stringent throughout every step of the products’ life cycle, including service and delivery.  Members of the organization are expected to demonstrate their quality management processes and to ensure that they follow best practices in everything that they do.

In order to strengthen the sector, Baja’s Medical Device Cluster proactively conducts events to identify and to develop domestic suppliers that can serve the needs of their member companies.  One of the means by which Mexican supplier companies can meet potential customers is by attending the annual Medsummit.  This 2020 event will take place at the Baja California Center on the 12th and 13th of August.


On the institutional level, the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California (UABC) now offers a degree program in bioengineering to its student body.  To attest to the quality and educational level of the Baja California workforce, according to the Secretary of State Education, 14,000 students in Tijuana are enrolled in engineering or technical programs.  The city has high schools and universities with programs that are related to the medical device and other prominent industries that include an emphasis on engineering, technology, and manufacturing.

In addition to meeting the requirements related to the ISO 13485 international quality standard, companies that manufacture in the Baja California Medical Device Cluster must also abide by internationally defined environmental and safety and health standards.  To this end, the organization provides its member companies with continuous training opportunities to ensure compliance in these areas.

Mexico´s National Institute of Statistic and Geography (INEGI) says the country´s manufacturing industry represents 16% of its GDP.
Consequently, Mexico and it´s industrial sector offered around 506,000 job opportunities to people who were actively involved in this sector. While other business areas with a large number of open positions included financial services, repairing, and maintenance.
Hard facts like these provide further proof for international investors to consider Mexico as the ideal country to make their companies grow. Going into detail, however, investors must look into the state of Baja California, and most specifically Mexicali. The city is host to a wide range of aerospace, automotive, logistics and manufacturing companies, and has been so for over 50 years. Due to that Mexicali is the best option for industrial real estate in Mexico.

Mexico is an industrial country. Over the years, automotive, aerospace and manufacture companies have built a strong economic source. Many cities in the center and north of Mexico allocate a number of their spaces to industrial parks.

The actual overview of the aerospace industry

A few weeks ago we shared with you an article that explains a bit more why Mexico is the best option for investment in the industrial sector and an example of the most important city for the industrial real estate in the north.
Besides from that, according to the Mexican Federation of Aerospace Industry (FEMIA), the growth in this sector will have a continuous increase of 11% from 2018 until 2023.  This due to the actual concentration of the activity in North America.
FEMIA’s President Luis Lizcano exposed that with the National Program of Provider’s Development it can be detected which companies have technical, technological, human and financial capabilities to compete and impulse the industrial sector exportations.  Besides that, it helps to negotiate economic support for them.
President Lizcano mentioned that the closure of exportations this year will be around 14% percent over 2017’s grand total. With this also came the creation of 60 thousand new jobs. Also the construction of 340 brand new installations in different states of the republic.

How fast is your company growing?

According to ProMéxico there are 300 companies in the country in the aerospace industry; that represents a growth of this industry by 500% in the last decade. There is no doubt that now is the best moment for the aerospace sector. Companies from all around the world are growing and searching for new places to expand and reach to more people. So don’t hesitate! If you’re looking for a new place to establish your company, contact us! To get more info, visit: http://pimsa.prospectodigital.mx/


Mexico has been able to consolidate as one of the principal industrial countries; due to manufacturing centers and likewise thanks to some characteristics that differences it from other countries. Such as:

  • Location, next to the US.
  • An open economy with commercial networking.
  • Young population.
  • Capable workforce.
  • And established macroeconomy with big recognition on a global level.

A prove to all this relies on the manufacture exportations on 2014. The consultant firm Aregional establishes that our country represented 85% of all the activity. In that sense, Mexico exports 65% more manufactures than all LATAM. Predominating on automotive, electronics and aerospace sectors.
Right now, the aerospace industry is having one of its best moments, which generates one of the most relevant opportunities for Mexico by increasing the exportation of national content and creating new quality jobs that Mexican people need.


For 2032 it’s predicted that the 10-tonne plane fleet number will be more than 36 thousand. With this, Mexico will become an important player for that industry since the actual number of ships moves around 18 thousand. At the moment there are more than 300 companies in this sector in Mexico. 80% of them are manufacture companies. The other 20% belongs to operations.
The biggest number of enterprises concentrates on the north zone of the country. Besides that, the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) has a record of 198 companies that rely thereon. In this industrial location, the main strategy focus on the creation of clusters and new technology development. Universities, companies, investigation centers and government bureaus collaborate in this task.
Baja California it’s highly consolidated as a fruitful place for industrial parks. Over 40 years of work and around 76 companies have grown there their industrial plants. The industrial real estate offer is big enough for everyone. And it accommodates logistics business, manufacture companies, aerospace industries, automotive, etc.


The international industry believes in Mexican manpower. It’s described as productive, innovative and hard-working. Besides that, Mexican people have demonstrated good disposition to learn new production methods and are qualified to make high-quality goods.
According to the National Council of Science and Technology (Conacyt), in 2012 more than 111 thousand engineers graduated. Similarly, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) registers than Mexico has 18% more engineer seniors in manufacture and construction than in the US.

Mexico’s manpower. Industrial Sector

Above all, there’s no doubt that the aerospace sector will determine Mexico’s search of a stable economic growth base on the great potential it has.

The actual status of Mexico

As an industrial country, one of the most profitable sectors in Mexico is the manufacture industry. Which in the last trimester of 2017, “according to INEGI (National Institute of Statistic and Geography), represents 16% of the Gross Domestic Product.” (El Economista, 2018)
It is true that in short terms, there´s an uncertainty environment around what could happen to Mexico. This thinking about the matter of agreements of the NAFTA and the next president election in the country. But as the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) explains, “growth is set to pick up, underpinned by private and exports”.

Why investing here?

The main reason of the success that Mexico its gaining weight in industrial business and manufacture is because of it’s location. Blue chip companies are going for binational mega regions in cities such as Mexicali, with industrial parks like PIMSA (Parque Industrial de Mexicali, S.A. de C.V.)
Therefore, we believe that Industrial locations like Mexicali are important for foreign companies that are looking for a profitable expansion.
