The Medical Device Market: Qatar

Espicom Industry View:   The small but rich Qatar has a medical device market res tricted by its population size , but p er capita expenditure is high,   ranking second in the Middle East & Africa (MEA) region. The healthcare sector is being extended and reformed, as part of the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030 and the National Development Strategy (NDS) 2011-201 6 . As a result, opportunities exist for medical device multinationals in the coming years, as Qatar aims to provide universal healthcare for the increasing population , including access to the latest medical advancements.

Headline Industry Forecasts

  • Ranking 10 th in the MEA region, the market is small. However, it has grown rapidly in recent years, fuelled by increasing public health infrastructure developments. It is projected to register a high 2013-2018 CAGR of 12.5% in US dollar terms, reaching over US$0.4bn by 2018. Per capita medical device spending is high, at US$105, ranking second in the region.

  • The market is dominated by medical device imports, primarily from the European Union and the USA, therefore the trade balance remains negative. Imports rose by a very high 41.6% in 2013, reaching US$0.2bn, which was the country's highest ever import level.

  • Medical device exports are negligible, considering the market size, which indicates very low domestic production levels. Between 2003 and 2013, exports ranged between US$1.3mn and US$11.7mn. Exports fell to US$5.0mn in 2013.

  • Domestic medical device production is very limited. QG produces needles, syringes and cannulae. Leading multinationals, such as GE and Siemens, operate subsidiaries but do not manufacture.

Headline Risk Reward Ratings

  • Qatar is the fourth most attractive market in the MEA region in which to commercialise a medical device, according to BMI Espicom's Medical Device Risk Reward Ratings (RRRs). The country's overall score is 59.9 out of 100 in Q414, unchanged from Q314. This compares to a regional average...

OVERVIEW OF THE MEDICAL MARKET IN QATAR

As part of the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030, the government launched the National Development Strategy (NDS) 2011-2016 in 2011, which is a short-term strategy plan. The NDS incorporated 14 sectorspecific strategies, one of which was the National Health Strategy (NHS) 2011-2016. One of the first NHS disease-specific strategies was the National Cancer Strategy (NCS) 2011-2016, which outlined six key cancer care stages. The NHS identified key challenges to healthcare, including an imbalanced care model, limited national health integration, changing morbidity and mortality patterns, increasing and fluctuating population, quality workforce shortages and the need to strengthen health regulation.

In US dollar terms, medical device market growth is expected to slow down in the coming years compared to previous past performance. However, the 2013-2018 CAGR is expected to be relatively high, valued at 9.7%, ranging from 13.9% for orthopaedics & prosthetics to 7.1% for dental products. As a result, the market is expected to reach US$274.3mn in 2018, equal to US$110. The market is expected to continue to be reliant on medical device imports. In the 12 months to March 2013, imports rose by a very high 42.0%, reaching US$187.9mn. Imports were again driven by diagnostic imaging and other medical devices. Orthopaedics & prosthetics was the only product area that recorded a negative growth of -31.9%.
