Research and Markets: The 2012 Medical Device Market: Mexico - Almost All of Mexico's Exports Are Shipped Across To the USA, 91.8% of the Total in 2011

DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/wcjhcc/the_medical) has announced the addition of the "The Medical Device Market: Mexico" report to their offering.

Espicom's in-depth medical device market reports are ideal for executives wanting to understand the key drivers in medical markets and have access to a wealth of statistical data. Each report opens with an outlook section that provides analysis of the market, 5-year market forecasts, national data projections, market outlook and key developments such as regulation, health facilities and government policy. The report also provides extensive background information, population trends, health status, health expenditure, organisation & administration, hospital services, medical persnnel, healthcare development, market access information, trade data and essential industry contacts. Included with the report are 3 free quarterly updated outlook reports, enabling you to keep up to date with market developments for a year.

Population growth, increasing health expenditure, chronic disease incidence and new technology acquisition, particularly diagnostic & orthopaedic equipment in the public sector, are factors contributing to growth. However, the weakening value of the Mexican peso against the US dollar has limited market growth in US dollars. The improved economic outlook has boosted growth prospects in the 2012-17 period. Future growth will depend in part on growth within the US economy, which remains the country's main trade and investment partner.

Public sector spending, financed primarily from federal taxes, has been expanding as a share of the total over the past few years, as the country increases its targeted spending on the poorest. Universal health insurance coverage was achieved in 2011.

Exports of medical equipment and supplies were valued at US$6.2 billion in 2011. Almost all of Mexico's exports are shipped across to the USA, 91.8% of the total in 2011. Medical consumables are the major export area, accounting for 40% of the total.
