BMI View : Slower economic growth and a further weakening of the Australian dollar will continue to weigh on market growth in 2016 . On a more positive note, industry will benefit from health reforms and business-friendly measures outlined in the pro-growth pre-election budget for FY2016/17. D espite the strength of market drivers such as the ageing population, rising hospital admissions and the increasing prevalence of chronic age-related disease we expect Australia will be the slowest growing market in our Asia Pacific region.

Latest Updates And Key Forecasts
We forecast that the market will record a negative 2014-2019 CAGR of 2.3% in US dollar terms, ranging from -3.6% for dental products to -0.6% for orthopaedics & prosthetics. The low dollar growth rate reflects a weak AUD, which will continue to depreciate against the US dollar in 2016 and 2017, following a sharp fall in 2015.
Imports increased by 2.7% y-o-y to USD1,035.3mn over the three months to February 2016 and we are optimistic that this is a precursor to modest growth in 2016, a view strengthened by the increased allocation for health in the government's May budget.
We expect a comparatively weak export performance in 2016 despite the competitive advantages of a depreciating Australian dollar. Export fell by 10.8% in US dollar terms during the three months to February 2016 to USD395.0mn.
