Medical Device Market: Peru & Philippines New Market Research Report Available At

Albany, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2013

Peru is often overlooked when discussing the rapid-growth economies of South America. While it has neither the size nor the wealth of Brazil or Argentina, the country has recorded strong economic growth in recent years, except in 2009, when economic growth was very modest, reflecting global economic issues. Between 2012 and 2017, GDP is expected to rise every year, reaching a projected US$286.5 billion in 2017. Per capita wealth has risen, especially in and around Lima. This has led to the emergence of a sizeable urban population which demands improved healthcare, and increasingly has the ability to pay for it. Per capita GDP is projected to rise from US$6,530 in 2012 to US$8,838 in 2017.

The Peruvian medical device market ( is one of the smallest in Latin America, and per capita consumption is low by regional standards. Decent levels of spending can be found in Lima but provision in the rest of the country is far less. In 2012, the market is estimated at US$311.7 million, equal to US$10.1 per capita. Diagnostic imaging apparatus accounts for 30.8% of the market, followed by consumables (19.6%), patiend aids (6.9%), orthopaedic & prosthetic products (6.5%), dental products (6.4%) and othe medical products (29.7%). The 2012-17 CAGR for the medical device market is projected at 15.6% in US dollar terms.

Peru produces very little medical equipment, so the vast majority of the market is supplied by imports. Medical device imports increased by 14.3% in US dollar terms in the 12 months to March 2012, reaching US$269.6 million. Growth was strong for patient aids, orthopaedic & prosthetic products and other medical products, which registered rises of 40.6%, 35.8% and 25.5% in US dollar terms, respectively.Growth was moderate for consumables, diagnostic imaging apparatus and dental products, which recorded rises of 7.5%, 3.8% and 3.1% in US dollar terms, respectively.

The Philippines' medical device market( is expected to grow at a solid 8.8% in the medium term. This growth will be spearheaded by the growth of imports, health expenditure, the private sector and medical tourism.

The Philippines has a history of political instability. The current ruling administration has had its fair share of controversy. The highly devolved health sector makes it difficult to stamp out corruption and other bureaucratic problems.

Medical device spending is around US$3 per capita in 2012, similar to that in Vietnam and China. The Philippines has some domestic capacity to produce basic hospital items, but the majority of the market is supplied by imports. Private hospitals in Manila represent the best prospects for suppliers.

The government plans to achieve universal healthcare by 2016. One of the steps taken to achieve this goal has been the widening of health insurance membership coverage. Since 2011, the government has paid for the health insurance membership (PhilHealth scheme) of 5.3 million of the poorest families, equal to around 25 million people, as identified by the National Household Targeting System for Poverty Reduction Poverty Reduction of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Families identified under this scheme are except from balance-billing (exempt from paying the difference between the insurance payout and the hospital bill) when they are admitted in any government hospital.
