Global Africa Medical Devices Market Research (MRFR Insights)

The Africa medical devices market is projected to register a CAGR of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027. The expansion of the market is a direct result of the rising number of technical developments that are bettering the quality of life for patients and the general public alike. In addition, the rising popularity of mobile platforms and AI, and 5G will fuel the market's expansion. The Africa medical devices market size is expected to reach approximately USD 7069.61 million by 2030.Moreover, the rising prevalence of chronic diseases and increased mortality rates are major areas of concern among people and government organizations. Thus, healthcare providers offer personalized care, including continuous and remote patient monitoring. Also, these can be worn for 24 hours without affecting routine life. Hence, considering its various advantages, the demand for wearable medical devices is projected to boost over the forecast period.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a decline in elective surgeries and hospital emergency room visits. Among the procedures considered less serious or not life-threatening, such as dental procedures, orthopedic surgeries witnessed a significant decline in the number of surgeries during the pandemic. Furthermore, the market players were offering devices prominently used for elective procedures, including orthopedic, dental procedures, and other critical surgeries, along with diagnostic imaging equipment, which witnessed a considerable decline in revenues in 2020 compared to 2019.

Africa Medical Devices Market Dynamics

Increasing investment in R&D activity by medical technology companies for developing new and advanced medical devices and easy approval for those devices by the regulatory authorities are expected to propel the market growth for medical devices over the upcoming years. Increasing demand for innovative therapies, along with the technological advancements in medical devices to overcome the unmet requirements in the healthcare sector, is considered the prime factor in supporting the growth of medical devices during the forthcoming years. However, data security threats may hamper the market growth for medical devices as an internet connection is required for transferring patient data from remote devices to physicians. Hence, this increases the threat to data security. The rising trend for connected devices makes them attractive and thus increases the risk of data breaches or hacks.

Market Drivers

  • Growing customer preference for wearable devices

There are several limitations of wearable devices, including security concerns and concerns associated with data privacy. Despite these restrictions, there is still a significantly high preference for fitness trackers and activity monitors owing to their easy usability and advantages. The growing emphasis on fitness among adults and the increasing focus of regional and national healthcare agencies on monitoring and diagnosis have been pivotal in the higher demand for fitness trackers. Also, introducing advanced models with new features and reduced prices by market players has increased the device's customer pool. This presents a huge opportunity for new entrants firms and established players to focus on this segment and launch new wearable devices to cater to these devices' growing demand.

Market Restraints:

  • High cost of devices

The industry has shown noteworthy developments in the past decade related to implementing new technologies and recent design modifications. However, these devices are pricey, which includes a comparatively higher acquisition expense, and subsequent maintenance costs, thereby leading to an overall increased device cost and ownership. Some advanced devices are associated with various other components, such as chips, batteries, sensors, and other accessories, which require periodic replacement. Thus, the high cost has been responsible for the comparatively limited adoption of medical devices in Africa.

Market Opportunities:

  • The shift toward homecare settings

The growing prevalence of chronic medical conditions and the treatment of patients suffering from these diseases exert huge pressure on Africa's healthcare systems. This has led to a substantial enhancement in the economic burden of treating these diseases. The overall price of treating a patient in a hospital inpatient setting is significantly higher, and longer hospital stays are associated with a higher economic burden.

  • Rising prevalence of chronic diseases

There is an enhancement in the prevalence of chronic disorders, including diabetes, cancer, and other infectious diseases, owing to the adoption of sedentary lifestyles and other factors. Also, healthcare agencies in various countries focus on increasing the diagnosis and treatment rates through rising awareness programs. With the growing prevalence and awareness of such conditions, the patient population requiring diagnostic procedures and tests is also increasing. Also, a rapid enhancement in the geriatric population is increasing the demand for ophthalmic and orthopedic procedures due to the increasing incidence of impaired vision and joint fractures in the elderly. For instance, according to 2021 data published by Osteoarthritis Action Alliance, the annual incidence of knee osteoarthritis is highest between the age group of 45-65 years, and 45% of the people with osteoarthritis are aged 65 or above.
