Future prospects for “Medical Technology”

Economic output is continuing to decrease in Russia, but less rapidly than it did last year. The fact that the market for medical technology is continuing to shrink cannot be denied. In addition to the sense of reservation towards western manufacturers, there is also the fact that public spending on health has been cut further in 2016 by an estimated 8 per cent, to approximately 7 billion euros. Almost half of this figure is accounted for by the procurement of medical technology and consumables, with the majority being spent on covering personnel and administration costs. The number of new hospitals and hospitals to be modernised is also falling. Despite improvements in the home medical technology industry, dependency on imports, particularly with advanced technology, is approximately 80 to 90 per cent. Despite the high dependency on imports, Russian imports of medical technology are falling – this has been caused by financing problems, the government policy of import substitution and the considerable devaluation of the ruble, which has led to a large increase in the price of imports.
