Currently Indonesia produces mainly primary medical products such as surgical gloves, bandages and orthopedic products. As a result, the largest medical imports are medical consumable products, particularly injection needles and catheters, which account for 20%. However, foreign manufacturers of medical devices, cosmetics and pharmaceutics have always faced numerous obstacles and challenges in entering this market, such as meeting the right partners and especially obtaining the many mandatory licenses.
