Argentina Projected to Post Strong Growth in Its Medical Equipment Market for 2022

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented many challenges for countries around the world, and Latin America has not been an exception. However, the pandemic has also produced the possibility of developing innovative ideas, such as the prototype device to intubate COVID-19 patients without the danger of infecting healthcare teams. It’s also led to greater acquisitions of state-of-the-art equipment, such as surgery robots or angiometers used to diagnose and treat complex pathologies through minimally invasive procedures.

Global Health Intelligence (GHI) has years of experience in market intelligence gained through extensive research, along with 7 years of continual work in developing HospiScope, which in turn allows the company to produce data-driven market projections and to take the pulse of key hospital markets in Latin America. GHI’s recent data indicates that in 2020 Argentina’s hospitals posted significant increases in their acquisition of specialized medical equipment such as hemodialysis machines (+15.1%), MRI machines (+14.9%) and linear accelerators (10.7%). The company has also noted increases during 2020 in the acquisition of basic equipment such as patient monitoring systems (+16.8%), infusion pumps (6.8%) and ventilators (4.9%), which are clearly linked to treating patients during the pandemic.
