Market Highlights:
A medical device is any instrument, appliance including any software, biologic or non-biologic material, to be used for the diagnostic or therapeutic use for management of diseases and disorders.

The medical device industry of Africa provides unique challenges such as
• Greater scope of lower end devices with low cost and low features
• Extreme price sensitive because of low per capita disposable income. 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 first mover advantage will be everything, due to extreme difficulty in dislodging the market leader, due to lower profit margin on low cost devices and the smaller customer base.

Although innovation will remain very important strategy things need to be done differently in Africa due to a number of barriers such as

• Poor connectivity in many parts of Africa which disfavors products with high features.
• Challenging and dynamic regulatory framework. The standardization of protocols and data together with issues of cross integration and compatibility of devices manufactured by different manufacturers remain a high technical barrier.
• Need of global players to collaborate with local players to take advantage of their supply chain which will drive the cost down.

Other barriers are high cost of imported medical devices and high sales tariffs, low penetration of medical devices in Africa, political turmoil, the weak African currencies and their dependence on primary exports particularly mining, growing concern for data security etc.

The market drivers include guaranteed customer base as Africa has a disproportionate number of young people estimated at 62% of the population and the rising middle class of Africa.

The market is extremely consolidated with only a handful of players and first comers will extract a premium.

Regional Analysis:
The healthcare sector of Africa is divided between private and state. The public healthcare expenditure accounts for approximately 48 % of total health expenditure in 2014 with variation in different countries. Local manufacturing represents a poor outlook which is limited to consumables and ordinary articles and there are a handful of high tech devices manufacturers. Africa is extremely dependent on imports for medical devices and imports account for approximately 90 % of total market for medical devices and Chinese medical device suppliers dominate the scenario. Among the regions of Africa, South Africa and Egypt account for 40 % of market. Other important nations are Nigeria, Morocco and Algeria. Collaboration with large global companies and technical transfer will remain the key strategy for developing the regional African market as can be seen by the example of China.
