La demande russe des dispositifs médicaux est ouverte d'investissement étranger

A vast opportunity
Medical devices in most Russian hospitals and clinics are obsolete and need immediate replacement. The market is an attractive one for foreign manufacturers willing to do business in a country where government policies often dictate foreign investment.

Here are some reasons to try to capture Russian demand: The growth in demand for medical devices in 2007 was 7.1 percent but is believed to have slowed in 2008 to 4.8 percent, due to the global recession. Demand is expected to increase to between €1.3 and €1.6 billion in 2012, according to the Global Research & Data Services study.
