BMI View: We forecast a modest 2014-2019 US dollar CAGR of 1.8%, which is below the Western Europe average. Although the large and expanding elderly population would indicate a steady rise in medical device consumption, increasing financial pressures on the healthcare system and the relatively small population overall are likely to constrain future growth rates. While Finland has a history of high quality domestic production, the majority of output is exported leaving the domestic market heavily dependent on imported products .

Latest Updates and Key Forecasts
We forecast the medical device market will grow at a 2014-2019 CAGR of 1.8% in US dollar terms, taking the value to USD1.2bn in 2019. The low dollar rate reflects a weak euro at the start of the forecast period. The market will contract in US dollar terms in 2015 before returning to low growth in 2016.
We expect import performance in US dollar terms will continue to be constrained by the weak euro in the coming months. Medical device imports contracted by 10.6% in US dollar terms in the three months to August 2015 and by 8.1% over the 12 month period ending August 2015, taking the running annual total to USD0.9bn.
We expect exports will continue to be adversely affected by the depreciation of the euro in the coming months. Exports were down by 13.1% in US dollar terms in the three months to August 2015 and by 6.5% over the 12 month period, taking the running annual total to USD1.8bn.
The Finnish government is planning further reforms to the health sector, under which the responsibility for organising the services will rest with five social welfare and healthcare regions, rather than the individual municipalities, which we believe will improve equitable access. The new regions are planned to be up and running by January 1 2017.
