Russia: Opportunities for Swiss Suppliers of medical equipment

In Russia in 2017, imported products accounted for 76% of the total volume of the Russian medical equipment market, where the share of foreign production is one of the highest. The Swiss Business Hub Russia is showing in the market report various short- and long-term business opportunities for Swiss Suppliers.

Medical equipment in a hospital setting

Even though the government is trying to grow the domestic medical device industry through the so called “import substitution and localization program”, the Russian healthcare system still relies heavily on imports. Most high-tech and innovative products are imported from Europe and the United States. The share of the foreign production in the medical equipment sector is one of the highest. Within the industry innovative technologies are being used and large investments in R&D are required, including diagnostics and visualization, cardiovascular, ophthalmology, orthopedics, laboratory diagnostics, and urology equipment. Therefore many opportunities for foreign suppliers arise in the industry.
