About the Market

The global bariatric surgery market size was valued over USD 1300 million in 2014 and is growing rapidly. Factors contributing to the market are changing lifestyle habits, chronic diseases due to obesity and technological innovations by industry players, with increasing number of incision-free surgeries. In 2013, 62% of the obese people of the world lived in developed countries, followed by developing nations such as China and India. Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market with over 10.5%, owing to the huge obese population and medical tourism due to affordable surgeries. Even industry players have extended their research facilities in India to study obesity-related factors. Allergan Inc., Covidien Plc, Johnson & Johnson, Intuitive Surgical Inc., GI Dynamics Inc., TransEnterix Inc., USGI Medical Inc. are some of the key players in the market.

About the Geography

The Philippines is one of the largest markets in Southeast Asia with an estimated 103 million people and ruled by a presidential democratic republic. With the 12th largest population and the 30th largest economy, there is certainly scope for development, as it has grown from being an agriculture-based to services-based economy in the early 21st-century.

In comparison to its neighbors like Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand, Philippines have failed to meet expectations in terms of the volume of FDI. However, recent economic resurgence brought about by strong and consistent economic growth since 2010, new anti-corruption measures and credit rating upgrades have improved their international reputation and created a new impetus for attracting FDI’s into the country. The Aquino government helped with this by the passage of laws to liberalize the entry of foreign banks into the country, relaxing the Cabotage law allowing foreign vessels to ply import and export within the archipelago. The Customs Tariff and Modernization Act of 2016 to meet international standards, reflects efforts of the nation towards increasing FDI.

In spite of all this, the World Bank ranked the Philippines at the 103rd place (out of 185 economies) for ease of doing business. The major challenges for doing business include bureaucracy, corruption, restrictions on ownership of land by foreign companies, and restrictions on investment in certain sectors. The islands of Philippines are strategically placed among high growth countries like Mainland China, Malaysia, and Singapore, which makes it easier for export to these Asian countries. Also, a large English-speaking population and strong services sector are factors that make the Philippines an obvious choice for companies looking to take advantage of the low domestic wages and an educated workforce.
