Medical Devices

Since the 1980s, the Dominican Republic has worked to position itself as a major player in the medical device and pharmaceutical product global supply chain. Several decades of consistent progress later, medical device manufacturing is one of the Dominican Republic’s most dynamic export industries, representing 25% of all Free Zone exports and a total of $1.5 Billion USD in 2018 alone. With an increasingly competitive environment for manufacturing activities, major global companies continue to turn to the Dominican Republic for establishing and expanding medical device investment projects.

Local Presence

Currently, 33 medical device and pharmaceutical product manufacturers are operating under the Free Zones platform, generating more than 24,000 direct jobs and  an accumulated investment of $1.3 billion USD. 5 of the world’s top 10 global medical device manufacturers are located here. Some of our top products include:

  • Ostomy Appliances

  • Surgical Drapes 

  • Electro Medical Instruments 

Medical Device Supply Chain

Given the Dominican Republic's excellent transportation infrastructure and proximity to the global marketplace, it is a prime location to support supply chain optimization. 

Cluster Initiative

To support the continued development of the medical device industry, ADOZONA and CNFZE, the governing bodies of the Free Zones, established a medical device cluster which works to advocate for the industry. The cluster has devised initiatives that have lead to great improvements for the medical device sector, including workforce training programs and value chain optimization.
