Growth in African Medical Imaging Markets: Frost & Sullivan Examines the Potential
Date:7/21/2009

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Adverse economic conditions, the rising cost of healthcare and decreased donor funding to sub-Saharan Africa are posing major challenges to the medical imaging markets in many countries in the region. Price sensitivity and competition in these markets are expected to increase due to the current financial constraints faced by many healthcare institutions.

"Manufacturers of medical imaging devices are currently facing many challenges in the region due to the lack of funding available for radiology and the limited number of radiologists," says Frost & Sullivan healthcare analyst Jolize Gerber. "However, growth in the private sector and adoption of new technologies will present opportunities."

To offer decision makers a comprehensive overview of the East and West African medical imaging markets, the healthcare group at Frost & Sullivan will be hosting an online analyst briefing on Wednesday 29 July 2009 at 2:00 pm BST/ 3:00pm CAT.

The briefing will provide an overview of the challenges faced by medical imaging suppliers within key East and West African countries and highlight the opportunities available to manufacturers and suppliers. It will also offer a comparison of the market sizes, expected growth rates and current and future trends within these markets.

The discussion will benefit medical imaging equipment manufacturers and distributors, by discussing emerging trends and providing forward projections for the medical imaging markets in East and West Africa.
