The Africa medical devices market is a slow but steady space. Slow, because the poverty and political unrest hanging over most African regions hamper the market growth, restricting the development and production of medical devices. However, the world’s second-largest and second-most-populous continent, after Asia, Africa offers significant growth opportunities for industry players. Resultantly, many notable medical device manufacturers are getting attracted to Africa.

Many international players allow monopolies to continue within the medical device industry in the region. They are grabbing exclusive licensing opportunities, under which they can produce devices required for medical treatments in Africa itself. This, as a result, is letting the African medical device market to catch a momentum gradually. The medical devices market in Africa has grown promisingly over the last five years. Government and philanthropists are increasingly coming together to uplift the healthcare sector.
