The list of the world’s 10 largest medical device companies is going to look pretty different in 2015 versus 2014.

The medical device industry is seeing some major shifts amid multibillion-dollars mergers and the decision of some diversified companies such as Philips to split up.

For big device companies with megamerger plans, we tallied up their combined revenue and assumed that the proposed mergers, most notably Medtronic and Covidien, would pass regulatory hurdles.
