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

Taiwan has a dynamic capitalist economy with a semi-presidential government. Its economy is now the 26th largest in the world, as per the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) World Economic Outlook Database. The island enjoys strong growth sustained by the dynamism of the entire region, a population with high purchasing power, and an economy focused on technology.

Taiwan has one of the lowest fertility rates in the world, which tells us that the country is about to face labor shortages. To counter this, new regulations provide preferential tax incentives to foreign professionals employed in Taiwan, aimed at improving the overall environment for recruiting and attracting professionals from other countries. The regulations, which address a general shortage of professional talent, are expected to benefit up to 3,000 foreign professionals. Currently, a proposal has been made to establish "free economic demonstration zones" (FEDZ). The goal of building up these zones is to position Taiwan as Asia-Pacific’s Free Trade Center. The first phase of the plan has been launched in August 2013 and the draft Special Act for EPZ is awaiting ratification.

The major drawbacks for conducting business in Taiwan are the lack of direct communication with China, certain weakness in the protection of intellectual property, and a limited domestic market. Still, Taiwan ranks very high in the ease of doing business and its strategic geographical location serves as an entryway to China and the ASEAN markets. The modern infrastructure and excellent innovation capabilities make it an attractive destination for investors.
