At present, over 4,000 medical devices and equipment are in use in the country, about 5-7% of which are manufactured in the country. Among the locally produced items, majority are consumables/disposable with an estimated market size of USD 55-60 million. Aside from consumables, Bangladesh also produces orthopedic products, surgical sterilizers, hospital furniture, home care devices, electrocardiogram and other small instruments, albeit at a small scale. The demand for IVD device/ kit is expected to be the fastest growing segment, followed by cardio logical devices, consumables and diagnostic imaging equipment. The COVID outbreak has enhanced local production of personal protection equipment (PPE) including protective masks/ clothing, respirator, hospital gowns.
