Medical and Pharmaceutical Products and Services: A Sector with Long-term
Development Prospects

According to Mordor Intelligence, the global medical device market is projected to
expand from USD 637.04 billion in 2024 to USD 893.07 billion by 2029, attaining a
compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.99%.

Vietnam’s medical device market is also experiencing robust growth, with a market
size of US$1.677 million and a CAGR of 10.2%, ranking eighth in the Asia-Pacific
region. This sector has further attracted significant foreign investment through
mergers and acquisitions (M&A).

Factors Propelling the Boom in the Medical and Pharmaceutical Business and
Manufacturing Market

Firstly, Vietnam is witnessing a rising trend in population aging. According to the
General Statistics Office of Vietnam, the proportion of individuals aged 60 and
above increased from 11.9% in 2019 to 13.9% in 2023. This demographic shift is
associated with an increased prevalence of chronic and age-related health issues,
driving demand for healthcare services.

Secondly, improvements in living standards, both in urban and rural areas, have
led to a growing willingness among individuals to invest in their health. As a
result, there is an increased demand for health-enhancing products and equipment.

Thirdly, Vietnam has implemented numerous policies that attract foreign investors
and encourage technology transfer. Notable examples include the National Strategy
for the Development of the Vietnamese Pharmaceutical Industry until 2030 with a
vision toward 2045, approved in October 2023, and the Plan for Developing the
Network of Medical Facilities for 2021-2030 with a vision toward 2050, approved in
February 2024.

Overall, the medical and pharmaceutical sector remains an attractive field for
businesses, and specialized exhibitions like Vietnam Medi-Pharm Expo 2024 offer a
valuable opportunity for companies to connect, showcase their innovations, and
expand their customer base.
