Governments are however now promoting hospital revitalisation programmes that are driving the medical equipment market in the region.

The lack of training on equipment operation and maintenance, however, remains a concern for most hospitals. Increased support from suppliers in the form of training and increased local presence is set to alleviate this problem and sustain demand.

"The hospital medical equipment market in sub-Saharan Africa will be spurred largely by the demand for patient monitoring and diagnostic equipment," notes Frost & Sullivan (medicaldevices.frost.com) Research Analyst Ishe Zingoni. "Stronger end-user demand is projected within these segments in the short-to-medium term."

A high disease burden will be a major factor in expanding these two market segments. The HIV/AIDS epidemic, in particular, is resulting in rapidly increasing patient numbers, exerting tremendous pressure on hospital medical equipment. Demand for medical imaging equipment will also surge due to the equipment upgrade exercises currently being implemented by African governments.

However, the shortage of skilled personnel to effectively operate and maintain medical equipment is often a strong deterent to investment in specialised equipment.

"Hospitals lack the necessary expertise to operate and maintain equipment and therefore limit such purchases," explains Zingoni. "This challenge has traditionally been exacerbated by suppliers' lack of local presence within African markets. The lack of technical support from suppliers leads to chronic equipment failures."

Multinational suppliers who improve their local presence, either directly or indirectly through distributors, can take advantage of the opportunities this presents. This would enable speedy attention to customer complaints and problems. Enhanced training and continuous support should also be offered to customers, thus limiting equipment breakdowns.
