CRA provided expert testimony regarding the economic prong of domestic industry in an ITC Section 337 investigation related to patented implantable medical devices. CRA analyzed the significance of domestic industry investments in multiple labor and cost categories at two U.S. facilities and applied various metrics to allocate investments to the domestic industry products. CRA also examined realities of the marketplace in determining whether certain investments related to non-patented components used in conjunction with patented components should be considered. The ALJ and Commission adopted CRA’s domestic industry conclusions.
