This TforG Healthcare Market review report for The UAE includes numerical and written analysis on the socioeconomic and macroeconomic context and outlook, the healthcare system, and the latest healthcare reforms. Moreover, an extensive chapter is dedicated to the markets for capital equipment, medical devices, disposables and pharmaceuticals.

The report helps businesses gain a unique insight into the socio-economic dynamics, and helps analyze how they affect healthcare systems and their evolution. It can serve as a valuable tool with actionable guidance for sales, marketing, R&D and business managers with industry related interests.

Four chapters cover the numerical and written analysis for the following topics: Economic Outlook (38 Key industry indicators), The Healthcare System (HC system structures), Reforms (restructuring, re-engineering or austerity efforts) and the Healthcare Market (Capital Equipment, Medical Devices, Disposables and Pharmaceuticals).

Economic Outlook:
-Projections show a GDP growth rate of about 4.6 percent in 2015-16, which is lower than previous projections and factors in a lower oil demand in the market.
-Abu Dhabi is especially dependent on oil revenues and will be hit the hardest by these market fluctuations.
-Gradual economic increases are expected in the coming years, reaching almost 5 percent by 2017.
-Despite the concern about decreased demand for oil, economic growth will continue (though at a slower pace than originally projected), driven by the UAE’s diversified non-oil sector, it’s strong structure (i.e. stable political environment and strong banking system).
-A variety of fiscal buffers have been put in place to help absorb the economic shock of the slowed oil demand.
-Diversification and long term economic sustainability will remain a priority.

The Healthcare System:
- In 2014, UAE healthcare expenditures represented only 3 percent of the GDP compared to Saudi Arabia with 4.6 percent and Egypt with 5.2 percent.
-69 percent of healthcare expenditure comes from the public budget and 31 percent from private sources.
-Healthcare costs are expected to rise by about 30 to 40 percent in the coming years.
- Healthcare in the UAE can be divided into 3 main sections: Abu Dhabi (Southern Section), Dubai (Central section), and Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah (the Northern Section).

Reforms:
Reforms will center around the following:

- Reducing capacity gaps.
- Improving the quality of care
- Attracting and retaining a qualified staff
- Ensuring balanced cost/benefit practices and sustainability in healthcare expenditure

The Markets:
- Factors like rapid population growth, an expanding middle class, increased life expectancy rates and a government focus on the expansion of healthcare (turning the country into a medical tourism hub for the Middle East) all contribute to the promising healthcare market landscape in the UAE.
- The UAE government is taking measures to introduce programs and incentives to encourage private sector growth, optimize current operations, and leverage technology where possible.
-Public/private partnerships (PPP’s) are encouraged and well subsidized by the UAE government.
-Opportunities also exist for healthcare software companies which will benefit greatly from the expansion efforts of the UAE government. The following areas have high potential growth: Cardiology applications, telemedicine and case mix management systems.
