BMI Industry View : France will remain the fifth largest market in the world despite only seeing low single-digit US dollar growth in 2016. Further cost containment measures to control spending on medical devices will limit underlying growth in the market, which is primarily driven by the rising healthcare needs of the aging population and the need to keep pace with new technology.

Latest Updates And Key Forecasts
We forecast the market will record a 2014-2019 euro CAGR of 4.7%, slightly higher than the 2009-2014 CAGR of 4.3%. This reflects higher economic growth over the forecast period. In US dollar terms, the 2014-2019 CAGR will be lower at 2.4%, due to a weak euro during the early part of the forecast period, taking the market value to USD16.5bn.
Imports will continue to fall in US dollar terms in H116 as the euro remains under pressure from a strong US dollar. Imports will register positive growth in euro terms on the back of higher economic growth, although cost containment measures within the health sector will weigh on growth rates. Imports grew by 4.8% in euro terms, but fell by 12.2% in US dollar terms in 2015.
France's long standing competitiveness issues will hinder export growth, although it will see some benefits from a cyclical upswing in the eurozone economy. Exports grew by 1.0% in euro terms, but fell by 15.3% in US dollar terms in 2015.
The medtech sector will benefit from additional measures to support faster uptake of new medical technology, including increased staffing levels at the healthcare products pricing committee (CEPS), an extension of the Forfait Innovation reimbursment mechanism and a new financing framework for the acquisition of costly innovative equipment. We believe these initiatives are further evidence of the government's commitment to champion innovation in the medical device sector as a means of providing a more cost-effective health service and to support the competitiveness of the domestic industry in the global market.
