New analysis from global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan (medicaldevices.frost.com), Key Hospital Purchasing and Reimbursement in the Medical Devices Market in South Africa, finds that the market earned revenues of $800.0 million in 2006 and estimates this to reach $1.2 billion in 2012.

"The healthcare system in South Africa consists of both a large public sector that suffers from poor infrastructure, particularly in rural areas, and a smaller, but highly sophisticated and fast-growing private sector that can be equated with developed western countries," explains the head of Frost & Sullivan's African healthcare practice, Dr. Keith Schlagbauer. "The government is encouraging public-private sector cooperation to make healthcare more accessible to all and, at the same time, raise the standards of the services provided."

South Africa is experiencing significant economic growth due to an inherently stable financial leadership, sound macro-economic principles and infrastructure development. In an effort to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the government is expanding healthcare delivery systems through increased finance and participation of private sector entities. As populations gain easier access to information on healthcare options, there is an increase in demand for specialised healthcare services that require high-end technologies.

However, with high poverty rates and a poor distribution of wealth, significant hurdles exist for the development of an efficient and up-to-date healthcare infrastructure in the public sector.

"Moreover, the award of tenders and selection of suppliers, especially for public hospitals, is frequently contentious, with bureaucracy and the lack of autonomy in the procurement processes in public sector hospitals causing delays in the award of tenders," observes Schlagbauer. "In addition, there is an inherent shortage of skilled healthcare professionals to drive the demand for high-end products."

The high level of competition in the market requires the presence of a good sales force. This is crucial to ensure widespread product knowledge and thereby stimulate market penetration. Training and development of the sales force thus needs to become an integral component of an organisation's market strategy.
