Brazil – Explore your business opportunities in this fast growing medtech market

Export opportunities to the Brazilian market are rapidly expanding. With a growing middle class and free market economy, Brazil offers an emerging market full of business possibilities.


With 193 million inhabitants, Brazil has the largest medical technologies market in Latin America. Demand for medtech in Brazil is rising and the sector is expected to grow consid-erably in the coming years. The driver of this growth is the Brazilian economy and its rapidly expanding middle class which have gained access to high-quality medical care through changes in the private health insurance systems. Although medical technology products used in Brazil are both manufactured locally and imported, the market for foreign suppliers remains an attractive prospect. Large numbers of private hospitals are investing heavily in expanding their capacity and modernizing their facilities, often operating independently of the rules of Brazil´s public procurement system.
