In February 2011, Hosni Mubarak relinquished his post as the nation's president after nearly 30-years in power, following weeks of protests in Cairo and other cities. There has since been a period of political uncertainty with the Army playing the role of an interim government. The Army has not announced any major policy changes, but is focusing on stability, and said it will oversee the process for presidential and parliamentary elections which could take place in June 2012. The Army has given some presidential powers to the current Prime Minister Kamal el-Ganzouri.
The medical device market has recovered to pre-crisis levels, based on latest monthly import data to June 2011. Imports were sharply impacted by the political instability in the weeks leading to the stepping down of long-term president Hosni Mubarak and weeks after the event the flat downward trend continued before recovering to pre-crisis levels.
Imports in January 2011 fell by 87.5% to reach just US$3.7 million compared to the December 2010 total of US$29.4 million. Imports remained flat in February, March and April before recovering strongly to previous levels, rising by 692.9% over the previous month to reach US$33.0 million in May 2011. Imports dipped by 16.4% in June 2011 to US$27.6 million, but the totals in May and June 2011, including the fluctuations, indicate imports have recovered to the normal levels seen in December 2010 and previous months.
