The Supply and Manufacture of Medical and Surgical Equipment and Orthopaedic Appliances


The value of the South African market for medical devices was estimated at over R20bn in 2018, and it is expected to grow by 7.7% in 2019. While local manufacture continues to grow, it remains a small part of the industry, as fewer than 5% of local industry players manufacture devices. As most devices are imported, the industry is extremely sensitive to currency volatility.


Diverse Sector


There are more than 600 medical equipment suppliers, many of which are small businesses that are distributors and agents for large multinational subsidiaries. The industry is fragmented with more than 300,000 different medical technologies used in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment and amelioration of disease and disability, ranging from sticking plasters and wheelchairs to pacemakers and replacement joints. More than 80% of the industry consists of privately-owned small and medium-sized enterprises competing with multi-billion dollar healthcare companies like Johnson & Johnson, GE, Siemens and Medtronic.


Demand Grows


The demand for medical devices is driven by increased health problems like obesity, and the rising cost of healthcare which stimulates development of innovative products such as wearable medical devices, and demand for early detection and non-invasive therapies.
