ANALYSIS OF RUSSIAN MEDICAL MARKET
Dear Valued Customer,
We are glad to announce that starting from the New Lunar Year we opened a New business line in our company – market analysis!
Being involved in the field of MD registration for more than 15 years, we realize how crucial it is to get a comprehensive picture of the market before launching such a difficult process as a product registration. In this regard, we decided to use our expertise to help our current and potential partners to learn more about the Russian market of medical devices and healthcare systems.
If you are thinking about placing your product, we can provide you with the most recent and accurate information, regulations, statistics and analysis.
We help manufacturers and distributors to take the right step!

In congruity with our new business line we provide the following data on the openly published basis and would like to start with some figures of the Federal Budget allocations to the healthcare segment. These are the amounts approved for 2023 and planned for the next 2 years – a bit less than 1,5 trillion rubles with an increasing trend. As you can see, the government spends about 5% of the whole country budget to the healthcare segment, but these are just some general figures: small in terms of percentage, big in terms of overall numbers. However, the most interesting and self-explanatory parts are hidden inside. Details can make all the difference.
From this data we can see the budget in 2023 to be divided in 2 parts – the main of them is the State program named “The Development of healthcare sector”. Unlike the National project “Healthcare”, quite a big part of money from the State program are dedicated to the capital costs: building infrastructure and new clinics, renovating hospitals and wards.
In this diagram we can see the split in the State program – traditionally more money is being allocated to the ambulatory care because statistically there are much more people who need out-patient treatment. Also the government is aimed to develop the primary health care and sets KPI for preventive maintenance.
A 20% piece of “cake” named “The development of healthcare sector” goes to different Federal projects – almost 243 billion rubles has been divided among 17 various types of medical care and services. These projects have quite wide coverage from hospitals infrastructure to precise group of diseases or range of problems. In addition to allocations directly from the Federal budget usually most of the Federal projects are followed by dotations from regional and (or) Compulsory Medical Insurance (CHI) funding. Diversity of the projects can also refer to issues in medical system that government acknowledges and willing to solve.
With the next graphics step by step we will reveal more details about each project and its aim.
The first Federal project we would like to uncover is the neonatal screening – its aim is to detect congenital diseases or hereditary conditions during the first 10 days of a baby’s life. When it comes to such heavy diseases it important to diagnose them and start the treatment as soon as possible in order to prevent nonreversible complications and improve quality of life. The yearly budget of the project in total is more than 2 billion and as you can see at the infographic
– this sum has been divided among 85 regions and in very average each recipient would have about 27,5 million rubles.
Statistically speaking the birth rate in Russian Federation has been decreasing over the last years: according to the latest official database, with 145,5 mln of population, there are 9,6 babies per 1000 people and 1,5 babies per fertile woman. As mentioned previously 2,34 bln rubles allocated for neonatal screening are distributed among 85 regions. At the graphic
you can see TOP5 regions-recipients – in terms of percentage these territories get twice more than statistical average. Surprisingly, there is no correlation between infants birth and mortality rate in a region and amount of allocation. However a trend with correlation of density and overall population and wealth being of a region can be seen. Although Moscow and saint Petersburg have birth rates higher than regions 2, 4 and 5 from the graphic, you will not find them among TOP5 recipients because they also have other sustainable sources of budgeting.
Previously neonatal screening was limited to 5 diseases, but starting from the beginning of this year, it was expanded up to 40. Being a very generous increase the expanded neonatal screening is planned to be integrated in all regions which inevitably should attract additional investments. So far, with a help of regional budgets, new diagnostic technologies were settled at least in 11 medical centers that has already run blood tests for expanded neonatal screening. Meanwhile the average costs of screening in TOP5 regions shown at the graphic, apparently doesn’t have regard to any extension meaning that either more regional budgets will be attracted or more allocations from the federal budget should be expected in future.
