Romania Medical Devices Report

BMI   Industry View: The Romanian medical device market is projec ted to grow by a CAGR of 2.9 % over the 2013-2018 period, in line with economic growth and rising health expenditure. The scarcity of high-tech equipment and the acute need for renovation within hospitals keeps the demand for medical devices high. The market is expected to remain heavily reliant on im ports as the domestic industry mainly produces outdated equipment that can only compete with foreign products in terms of price .

Headline Industry Forecasts

  • In 2013, the Romanian medical device market was estimated at US$436.6mn, or US$20 per capita. This market size is comparable to Belarus; in per capita terms, the market is similar to Ukraine. The market contracted by a CAGR of 4.2% over the 2008-2013 period, but it is expected to expand at a 2013-2018 CAGR of 2.9%, reaching US$503.5mn, or US$24 per capita by 2018.

  • Around 90% of the medical device market is supplied by imports. Romania imported medical devices valued at US$387.2mn in 2013; this represented a decrease of 0.4% compared with 2012, in US dollar terms, and a 2008-2013 CAGR of -4.0%. Imports have increased every year since 2005 with the exception of 2009, 2012 and 2013.

  • Romanian medical device exports have grown strongly in recent years, albeit from a very low base. Exports rose increased by 32.0% in 2013, reaching US$102.1mn. The 2008-2013 CAGR was 10.8%. The trade deficit shrunk from US$311.4mn in 2012 to US$285.1mn in 2013, due to strong export growth and falling imports.

  • Romania produces very little in the way of medical equipment. Items manufactured locally, principally comprise basic consumables. Domestic medical device production is estimated to be around US$150mn. 

Headline Industry Risk/Reward Ratings

  • Romania is the fifth least attractive market in Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) in which to commercialise a medical device, according to BMI's Medical Device Risk/Reward Ratings (RRRs). The country's...
