South Africa Medical and Surgical Equipment and Orthopaedic Appliances Supply and Manufacturing Report 2020 -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Supply and Manufacture of Medical and Surgical Equipment and Orthopaedic Appliances in South Africa 2020" report has been added to's offering.

This report focuses on the supply and manufacture of medical and surgical equipment and orthopaedic appliances, collectively referred to as medical devices.

It includes comprehensive information on the state and size of the sector, the effect of coronavirus, statistics on usage of medical technology, the device market by category, trade and many more.

There are profiles of 66 companies including APS Therapy, which imports micro-current pain therapy devices, CE Mobility, which provides locally-manufactured electric wheel chairs and Megrotex, which provides locally-manufactured bandages and dressings.

The Supply and Manufacture of Medical and Surgical Equipment and Orthopaedic Appliances:

The medical devices sector has over 500 suppliers, many of which are small businesses that are distributors and agents for large multinational subsidiaries. The industry is fragmented with commodities ranging from nuclear cameras and catheters to latex gloves.

The coronavirus pandemic has created opportunities and challenges for the sector. While it has led to the collapse of elective medical procedures, which has caused sales to dive, it has also created opportunities for companies making ventilators and testing kits.

Growth Opportunities:

South Africa's aging population is expected to drive demand for medical devices, particularly those involved in the treatment of chronic ailments.

The underdeveloped medical devices market offers potential for growth, but faces considerable restraints including funding issues, poor infrastructure, and staff shortages, particularly in the public sector. The sector remains dominated by imports, and experts say more needs to be done to support local manufacturing of medical devices.


The pandemic has increased global demand for diagnostic test kits as healthcare authorities attempt to trace and track the spread of the virus.

In South Africa a shortage of diagnostic test kits led to local innovators starting to produce them and some medical device companies which manufacture lateral flow rapid diagnostic test kits have done well during lockdown because their products have direct application. But there have been delays in approvals of licence applications and problems with procurement processes.
