Medical Equipment Indonesia

Clinical Laboratory Equipment Indonesia (2008)

The clinical laboratory and diagnostics instruments market in Indonesia has grown considerably and will continue to grow through 2009. Indonesia, the fourth most populous nation in the world and the largest by far in Southeast Asia, makes it one of the world’s largest markets for medical equipment and healthcare services. In addition, Indonesia has experienced multiple disasters (Tsunami, earthquakes,

floods) in several areas in the country. These catastrophic events require major reconstruction of medical infrastructure, and thus increase demand for medical equipment, clinical lab and diagnostics instruments, and other medical products. U.S. manufacturers of clinical laboratory equipment should take advantage of this growing market.

Health Food Supplements Indonesia (2008)

In 2007 the market for health food supplements in Indonesia was estimated at $303 million, consisting of over 80 percent imports with some locally sourced or manufactured items. U.S. products accounted for $160 million or over 60 percent of all imported health food supplements. The prospect of sales in the Indonesian market remains good. Demand for health food products is expected to increase in the range of 20-25 percent over the next two years. This upward trend is attributed to an increasing awareness of preventative health measures, which created a larger demand for a variety of health food supplements, leading to excellent opportunities for U.S. health food supplement manufacturers.
