BMI View: The medical device market is small but per capita expenditure ranks highest in Latin America. We f orecast a high single- digit 2015-2020 CAGR in US dollar terms, fuelled by public hospital modernisation. The market will remain reliant on imports as production is limited. Chile has generally avoided regional full membership in trading blocs such as MERCOSUR or CAN, preferring bilateral agreements such as its FTA with the USA, which will continue to shape market trends.

Latest Updates and Key Forecasts
We maintain that the market will grow at a 2015-2020 CAGR of 7.2% in US dollar terms, which will increase the market value to USD1.2bn by 2020.
The market will continue to be dominated by imports, primarily from the USA, the European Union and China. Imports rose by 4.3% y-o-y in US dollar terms in the three months to May 2016, and by 7.3% y-o-y in the 12-month period ending May 2016.
While an upward trend is evident, exports will remain low, resulting in a significant balance of trade deficit. In the three months to May 2016, exports were up by 11.6% y-o-y in US dollar terms, and by 11.5% y-o-y in the 12 months to May 2016, bringing the total to USD22.1mn.
Chile is one of 12 countries that signed the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) in October 2015 and the only country to have existing free trade agreements in place with every member of the TPP. Nonetheless, we believe the TPP will provide Chile with greater access to the markets of the other signatory countries than was previously possible.
