The Argentine medical device market has fallen in the regional ranking . We forecast a low 2013-2018 CAGR of 4.8 % in U S dollar terms, which reflects the impact of the projected depreciation of the local currency . A relatively large domestic manufacturing sector is operational but imports remain very high , in spite of an apparent shortage of consumables reported in 2014 . The country has recovered from a severe economic crisis in 2002 but has not resolved its long-standing macroeconomic imbalances, which will affect the market in the long-term.

Headline Industry Forecasts:

- The Argentine medical device market was valued at USD687.2mn in 2013. Diagnostic imaging, other medical devices and consumables have the largest market shares. Prior to the economic crisis, Argentina had the highest medical device expenditure per capita in Latin America, but it now lags behind, at USD17 in 2013.
