BMI View : Ghana represents a comparatively small medical d evice market of just under USD 6 0mn. Per capita spending is low at USD 2.2 indicating considerable potential for expansion. The market will achieve a double digit CAGR growth in local currency terms during the forecast period but due to a weakening currency, this will translate to a CAGR of just 0.1% in USD terms to 2019.

Latest Updates & Key Forecasts
Primarily supplied by imports, we forecast the market to register one of the world's lowest CAGRs in US dollar terms over the 2009-2014 period, at just 0.1%. This low dollar rate reflects a weak cedi at the start of the forecast period.
After falling y-o-y in every quarter of 2014, imports of medical devices have increased steadily in 2015, backing up our assessment that the approval of an IMF credit facility and projected growth in GDP will translate to rising imports. Imports grew by 25.8% in the three months to June 2015 and by 11.1% over the 12 month period ending June 2015, taking the running annual total to USD65.4mn.
Ghana's very small export trade is subject to volatility. Exports halved to USD0.2mn in the three months to June 2015, but grew by 34.9% over the 12 month period ending June 2015, taking the running annual y-o-y total to just over USD0.7mn.
A recent report, published in November 2015, has suggested a number of improvements to the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) that will help enhance greater uptake across Ghana. We believe that the long-term success of the NHIS will largely be determined by sustained financial support, as well as improvements to Ghana's healthcare system on a national-scale. In 2015, just 34% of Ghana's population were recorded as active members. A total of 66% of subscribers do not contribute to the scheme, creating a large funding gap.
