Market Overview

Reprocessing of single-use devices aids in cutting costs and reducing medical waste. The reuse of these single-use medical devices involves regulatory, medical, ethical, legal, and economic concerns.

Owing to its cost saving nature and sustainability, reprocessing of medical devices is now being recognized as a promising prospect in the region. Moreover, rise in medical waste has also pushed the economies towards this technology. These factors are helping the growth of the market.

 However, lack of regulatory bodies and proper regulatory policies for reprocessed devices in the MEA (Middle East & Africa) countries, potential of material alteration and cross infection with reprocessed device, and preconceived notion regarding the quality of reprocessed single-use medical devices (suds)  have been restraining the growth of the market.

Scope of the Report

The single-use device (SUD) reprocessing devices include sequential compression sleeves, pulse oximeter sensors, cautery electrodes, scissors, and other devices.

Key Market Trends

Catheters and Guidewires in Class II Devices are Expected to Dominate the market

The catheter is a thin tube made from medical grade materials serving a broad range of functions including cardiovascular, urological, gastrointestinal, neurovascular, and ophthalmic applications. Catheters are medical devices that can be inserted in the body to treat diseases or perform a surgical procedure. 

A urinary catheter is a very important instrument in urological applications. It is used to collect urine from the bladder which leads to a drainage bag. The urine flow may be blocked due to various reasons including bladder or kidney stones, blood clots in the urine, or severe enlargement of the prostate gland. These conditions can be very severe. Moreover, the prevalence of some conditions, like kidney stones, increases with age, as per Justin B. Ziemba et al., published in Investigative and Clinical Urology, 2017. Hence as the population in the Middle East and Africa region gets older (as per "World Population Ageing ", United Nations, 2017), the prevalence of kidney stones is expected to increase. 

Hence as the prevalence of conditions like kidney stones is increasing, the demand for catheters and guidewires, which are a crucial component of the treatment, is also expected to increase. This will drive the growth of the market.

Competitive Landscape

Most of the global players are present in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) owing to factors such as economic growth in the last few decades.

The Africa region consists of some developing and underdeveloped countries. The healthcare systems in these countries are still not well structured and stable, due to the lack of essential funds. However, with recent foreign investments, the healthcare scenario is improving in the region. Hence the market in this region, though not large, is expected to grow in the future
