Why Buy This Report?

The Association of South East Asian Nation (ASEAN), which encompasses Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, is one of the world’s most diverse, fast-moving and competitive regions. If it were a single country, ASEAN would be the seventh largest economy in the world, offering opportunities in the form of a huge market of nearly USD 2.55 trillion and 635 million people. The region declared itself as a common market, the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC), at the end of 2015, achieving a major milestone in the regional economic integration agenda in ASEAN.

With a rapidly growing population and personal disposable income, the demand for healthcare is South East Asia is expected to skyrocket in the next decade. The region's medical device market is expected to grow from USD 4.6 billion to USD 9 billion by 2019. Increasing affluence is not only driving the demand for better quality healthcare, but is also contributing to a wide spectrum of chronic diseases that are related to poor lifestyle choices, such as cancer, obesity, diabeters and arthritis. Singapore, which has an aging population, is seeing a sharp increase in the demand for healthcare, while other ASEAN markets such as Indonesia and Vietnam have rolled out ambitious health insurance schemes, which has fueled investment into the healthcare sector.

Many of the ASEAN countries, for example, Vietnam, Malaysia and Thailand, are highly reliant on the import of medical technologies, especially high-grade and sophisticated devices. While opportunities for the medical technologies sector abound in the region, ASEAN’s diverse healthcare markets make it essential for foreign medical device firms to investigate deeper into the healthcare framework of each market, to better understand the healthcare capacities available for different types of healthcare provision in each country, the quantity and quality of healthcare services provided as well as the bottlenecks and challenges faced by each market.
