The Medical Device Market: Australia

Espicom Industry View : The Australian market has performed well in recent years, driven by a strongly-growing economy and the requirements of an increasingly elderly population. However, a weakening of the Australian dollar over the next five years is expected to bring the momentum in the market to a halt.

Headline Industry Forecasts

  • At US$4,903.9mn, the market ranks amongst the top 20 largest in the world, while per capita spending is on a par with European markets such as the Netherlands or Finland. Growth for the 2013-2018 period is expected to be subdued; estimated at a CAGR of 1.2% in US$ terms which will raise the market to US$5,206.9mn by 2018.

  • Since 2001, medical device imports have seen a period of sustained growth. In 2013, imports reached a new high of US$4,575.3mn, rising by 1.2% over 2012. In US$ CAGR terms, growth was 7.7% between 2008 and 2013. The running annual total reached US$4,635.6 in the 12 months to June 2014, representing y-on-y growth of 1.9%.

  • Medical device exports bounced back from the dip experienced in 2009, recording strong growth over the 2010-2011 period. Exports were pegged back again in 2012, but growth resumed in 2013 when a 3.1% increase took the total to US$1,732.0mn. The running annual total reached US$1.814.5mn in the 12 months to June 2014, representing y-on-y growth of 6.1%. In 2013, the balance of trade deficit edged up to US$2,843.3mn.

  • Australia has a large number of small manufacturers, mostly making hospital consumables and supplies. Production is generally high quality, but low tech; advanced products are almost always imported. The majority of production is consumed locally.

Headline Industry Risk/Reward Rating

  • Australia is the second most attractive market in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region for commercialising a medical device in Q414, according to BMI Espicom's Medical Device Risk/Reward Ratings (RRRs). The country's overall score for Q414 is 74.9 out of 100, unchanged from Q314.

OVERVIEW OF THE MEDICAL MARKET IN THE AUSTRALIA

Australia is one of the richest healthcare markets in the Asia-Pacific region. The market ranks amongst the top 20 largest in the world, while per capita spending is on a par with European markets such as the Netherlands or Finland.

Around 75% of the market is located in the three states of New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, situated on the south and east coasts. Much of the rest of the country is very sparsely inhabited. Healthcare provision is a mixture of public and private. Public expenditure is largely funded by the Commonwealth (central) Government, while private expenditure is largely funded through insurance.

While there are a few small high tech manufacturers, local production tends to concentrate on basic hospital supplies. The market is therefore predominantly supplied by imports, which have grown rapidly since 2001. Imports are principally supplied by the USA, with which Australia has developed close trading links.

In August 2011, after months of negotiation, the Commonwealth Government signed an agreement with all States and Territories to formalise the National Health Reform plan. Designed to improve funding to hospitals and to reduce patient waiting times, the plan will see the Commonwealth Government invest at least A$16.4 billion (US$16.0 billion) in additional funding for public hospitals over the period 2014-15 to 2019-20. The Commonwealth Government will match 45% of efficient growth funding from July 2014, and 50% of efficient growth from July 2017.
