BMI View: We expect the Bangladeshi medical device market to achieve one of the fastest growth rates in the world, at 1 4. 5% annually, to 2019. With little domestic production, the demand for imported goods continues to drive growth, and positive trade indicators confirm this view. This under-developed market has huge potential, but prospects will hinge upon maintaining political stability and economic growth .

Latest Updates And Key Forecasts
We forecast the market to expand at a 2014-2019 CAGR of 14.5% in US dollar terms, ranging from 9.9% for other medical devices up to 18.6% for diagnostic imaging. The market is forecast to increase from USD196.3mn in 2014 to USD385.4mn in 2019. The slightly lower growth in US dollar values reflects a projected modest currency depreciation over the period.
After four quarters of y-o-y growth on the back of the relative strength of the taka, imports took an unexpected downturn in Q415, decreasing by 7.5% y-o-y to reach USD48.9mn. We believe the rising tide of IS-related unrest will further dampen demand in 2016.
Although Bangladesh exports very little in the way of medical devices, we believe there are positive signs that a modest domestic industry is beginning to form - largely in the orthopaedics & prosthetics and other medical devices sectors. Growth has been recorded in every quarter since the start of 2014 and the latest available trade data reveal that over the course of Q415, exports increased by 49.3% y-o-y to USD2.5mn.
An important step towards universal health coverage (UHC) was taken in March 2016 with the launch of a pilot programme to extend free healthcare to the poorest households. The programme, Shasthyo Suroksha Karmashuchi (SSK), will see 100,000 cards given out that will enable the holder and their family to receive free healthcare.
