Latest Updates And Key Forecasts
We forecast the medical device market will record a 2014-2019 CAGR of 4.6% in euro terms. We anticipate a lower CAGR of 2.3% in US dollar terms, due to a weak euro at the beginning of the forecast period, taking the value from USD170.7mn in 2014 to USD191.5mn in 2019.
We expect a tentative recovery in imports in 2016 in line with an acceleration of growth in the wider economy and a more stable euro. In the three months to October 2015, imports were down by 17.6% to USD26.0mn. Over the same period, imports were stable in euro terms.
We expect improved export performance as Russia and Finland emerge from recession and demand from the euro zone increases. In the three months to October 2015, exports were down by 9.4% in US dollar terms, while they registered a moderate increase in euro terms.
In January 2016, the Ministry of Health began accepting applications for projects to build or refurbish health centres. The government will invest around EUR115mn (USD122.8mn) through to 2023 towards improving the country's primary healthcare services.
