There is a huge growth in private hospitals sector that are aiming to attract the health tourists. Private hospitals have good resources to manage the diseases. As they are getting updated with the upcoming advancement in diagnostics and therapeutics, the success rate is really high.

Increasing incidence in life style disease

This era is suffering from many life style diseases in ophthalmology, cardiovascular, diabetes, hypertension, cancer, addictions and neurological disease .This leads to the alarming need of advancement in diagnostic and therapeutic facilities.


The medical device market of Africa is still underdeveloped that offers a very good potential growth but it is restrained by many factors. Funding issues and poor infrastructure is one of them. The private healthcare sector is very sophisticated and provides world class facilities with several centers of excellence. However, approximately 93% of equipment is imported by US and Germany. Also, staff shortage, particularly in public sectors. Opportunities will exist for exporters of medical equipment as extensive upgrades and development of hospital infrastructure is being considered.


However there exists huge hurdles too. The most common barrier is the low per capita income and the poor connectivity .Support system from R & D is not available. The other market barriers include high cost of imported medical devices and high sales tariffs. Although Africa has a large middle class consumer base there exists the reality that approx. 60% of population survives on less than USD 2 a day .The weak fluctuating African currency and dependency on imports is a threat to the market. Academic knowhow is not developed in this sector.

Forecasts (2019-2035)

Africa medical device market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.97 percent during the forecasting period 2019-2035, due to public-private partnerships to develop hospitals, government new health insurance schemes and growing ageing population. The South African medical device market will see high single-digit growth in local currency terms from 2019, a slow economic recovery and an increase in government investment. The establishment of the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) and other recent regulatory developments will benefit the healthcare sector and increase medical device market access. Domestic production will continue to grow in sophistication, but the vast majority of the market will remain dependent on imports.

South Africa’s medical device market is estimated to be worth USD1.27 billion. With expected year-on-year growth in medical devices of over 8% between 2019 and 2035 ,the increased interest in the country from local and international manufacturing companies is on the rise.
