Medical devices Industry in Mexico

Mexico has emerged as one of the most important medical equipment and devices market in the Americas.


Mexico’s medical device industry received a big boost in the 90s due to NAFTA. Medical equipment and components can be imported from the U.S. or Canada into Mexico duty-free, processed and assembled into products and re-exported. The growing demand for healthcare services and availability of skilled workforce made Mexico highly attractive to importers, exporters and investors.
