PDF and Paper

The global market for medical equipment and supplies is valued at US$245.6 billion in 2010, equal to just over US$44 per capita. The CAGR for the 2006-2010 period is 5.3%, although this masks the major reduction in growth which has occurred in 2009 and 2010.

Market growth is expected to resume in 2011 and beyond, although it will not be as rapid as before the global economic downturn. Some of the best prospects for growth will be in the developing markets of Asia, Latin America and Central Europe, while traditional Western markets represent more steady performers.

The USA is the world’s largest market, valued at US$94.9 billion in 2010, equal to 38.6% of the global total. While the CAGR of 2.8% to 2015 is unspectacular, it will take the market value to over US$100 billion for the first time.

So what, practically, does that all mean?
For planners, marketers, sales and general management, being able to plan effectively requires a detailed knowledge of which markets and market sectors are growing, and the national/regional context of that growth.
