Geopolitical events can often have profound impacts on local, regional, and even global healthcare markets. Many major medical device firms operate across many global regions instead of remaining local. As such, political, social, and geographic events can place unexpected strain on players in the healthcare space. This report examines some of the most prominent geopolitical events unfolding in the world today and discusses their potential impact across the medical devices sector. The major events focused on in this report are Brexit and the outcome of the US elections.

The UK’s exit from the EU comes with a lot of uncertainty regarding how the country’s healthcare market will behave over the coming years. Everything from expert personnel to supply chains are expected to be impacted, but this impact is far from clear.

On the other hand, following a tumultuous period, and amid a global pandemic, the US presidential election was held in November, after which its result was vigorously challenged. While the outcome now seems clear, it will have a significant effect on the US healthcare agenda for the next two years.
