Asian markets offer unique opportunities for leading European technologies in the Healthcare & Medical  sector, and show continuous growth in this field.
Korea is experiencing a 6.2% annual growth in the medical devices market. Healthcare expenditure in Singapore is expected to grow to 23.5€ billion by 2020. Japan’s Healthcare & Medical Technologies sector is expected to expand further due to its sophistication and an ageing population. In China, institutional investors and large technology companies have invested millions into the industry, and Biotechnology is a new frontier market. Strong opportunities are available for companies with unique or leading products in the Healthcare and Medical Technologies sector.
