Market Highlights

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines medical device as any instrument, apparatus, machine, appliance, implant, software, material etc. intended to be used for medical purposes and which does not achieve its primary intended action by pharmacological, immunological or metabolic means, but which may assisted these function.

The medical device industry of Brazil though one of the fastest growing is very import dependent with U.S. and Europe occupying the top slots. The market drivers for medical devices market are innovation, falling manufacturing costs and rising idle manufacturing capacity due to poor performance of defense electronic manufacturing in the U.S. Technology and product development remain the best market strategies with miniaturization and connectivity leading the way. Connected healthcare devices, healthcare mobile applications and internet of things seem to be the future of the sector. The market involves two sub segments one high-tech devices with extreme sophistication and another is the low tech improved devices. The Brazilian market is a cost conscious market and this fact is reflected in the greater growth of low tech medical devices as compared to hi-tech segment in the developed markets such as U.S. The greater growth of the low tech segment is a boon for another players such as China.

The market constraints are poor regulatory framework, growing concern for data security, differential connectivity between the developed and inaccessible regions of in Brazil, high cost of imported medical devices and high sales tariffs etc. 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.

The market is extremely consolidated with only a handful of players and advanced products will extract a premium. For example silicone implants were rage when they were introduced and thus were quickly absorbed by the market with low marketing costs. Thus the medical devices segment prefer technological innovative companies with first comers at a considerable advantage.
