Future Prospects for “Medical Technology”

In 2015, the Thai market for medical technology was estimated at almost 1.3 billion US dollars, and around two thirds of the devices and equipment were imported. The long term forecasts are exceptionally positive; economists monitoring the markets are expecting almost double digit growth over the long term every year. Due to the growth in health tourism, private hospital chains are seeing particular expansion. In 2015, imports of medical technology increased strongly again, to approximately 1 billion US dollars. Ensuring the provision of healthcare remains an urgent problem in Thailand. The government has tripled its healthcare budget to improve the general provision of healthcare. The ageing population is an important catalyst, and has made medical technology the winner in ”Greying Asia“.
