Future prospects for “Medical Technology”

According to estimates from suppliers of consumer goods and small instruments, the highly developed and mostly saturated market for medical technology in Singapore is estimated to have grown by around 10 per cent in the year 2015. Sales of large-scale equipment, which depend strongly on hospital projects, in contrast, are likely to be lower to slightly negative. However, a recovery is expected in 2017 due to new projects. Medical tourism is developing less strongly, in contrast. Fewer patients are travelling to Singapore due to increased costs and competition by neighbouring countries. Medical technology which is made in Singapore is limited to smaller niche products but is experiencing double-digit growth. Due to increasing exports, the production of medical technology increased by 33 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2015 and 11 per cent in the first quarter of 2016.
