Why Asia? 

Southeast Asia: Region on the Rise for Medical Technology

MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2016 comes at a time when the trade of medical devices is on the boom. This is largely driven by a rapidly expanding middle class and, for some, the beginnings of a greying population. Currently, there are approximately 320 million (8%) people in Asia Pacific ages 65 or older and this number is expected to grow to approximately 600 million (12%) by 2032.

Coupled with longer life expectancy and rising affluence in Asia, this presents companies with immense opportunities to expand the reach of their products and business networks in the region.

Growth in Southeast Asia’s medical technology industry

  • The medical device market in ASEAN countries is said to double from US$4.6 billion in 2013 to US$9 billion by 2019. 
  • Three ASEAN countries – Malaysia, Indonesia, and Thailand – account for approximately 65% of the current medical device market among the 10 member countries.

Demand for affordable medical devices on the rise

  • Affordable medical devices – cardiac devices in particular – is in demand in Asia. According to consulting firm Pacific Bridge Medical, a consulting firm that works with medical companies doing business in Asia, by 2021, Asia’s share of the global cardiovascular device market is expected to increase from 30 percent to 40 percent.
  • Physiological and regulatory differences, as well as differences in the level of training of Asian physicians mean that there is a growing need for affordable cardiac devices tailored for the Asian market.

Establishment of a regional medical device directive

  • According to an ASEANBriefing article, a mature regulatory framework for medical devices is in the works for ASEAN member countries. In particular, a regional medical device directive as of January 2015, aims to harmonise regulations across the 10 countries via legally nonbinding stipulations. This initiative is in line with ASEAN's goal to liberalise trade and investment in the healthcare sector in reaching out to regional market of more than 600 million people.
Malaysia and Indonesia
Malaysia and Indonesia, which are rich in rubber, lead global production in latex products such as surgical gloves and syringes. Malaysian exports in diagnostic imaging have expanded in recent years, according to research by Espicom, which estimates the country is likely to see compound annual growth of 16.1% to 2018, with growth for consumables as high as 24.8%

Singapore, the region's medical and technological hub, has a thriving biomedical research and development industry, and a competitive advantage in advanced manufacturing. It is home to the manufacturing operations of more than 30 medical technology firms.


Thailand has a relatively robust medical device market, worth approximately $1 billion and growing 15% annually, according to President of Pacific Bridge Medical.
