Industry News: Dates for Medical Fair India 2015 Announced

14 Jul 2014

The next staging of MEDICAL FAIR INDIA – India’s No. 1 Trade Fair for Hospitals, Health Centers and Clinics, will take place from March 21 - 23, 2015 at the Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. Modelled after the sector's No. 1 global medical trade fair – MEDICA - organized annually by Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, MEDICAL FAIR INDIA is jointly managed by Messe Düsseldorf and its subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt. Ltd. Over the years, MEDICA FAIR ASIA has become India’s No. 1 trade fair for the medical sector.

MEDICAL FAIR INDIA is held every year alternately in Mumbai or New Delhi, presenting the latest developments for the medical sector, ranging from medical, diagnostics and laboratory equipment to pathology and physiotherapy technology as well as hospital/clinic furnishings and communication/information technology.

Healthcare in India is in a state of enormous transition: increased income for the middle classes, health consciousness among the majority of the classes, price liberalizations and reduction in bureaucracy as well as the introduction of private healthcare financing. The country is one of the most promising growth markets for medical technology in the world. The backlog demand is huge and exceeds investments. While public money is being invested predominantly in basic medical services, private hospitals and laboratories are the driving force behind the modernization projects in this industry. They are investing in high-end technology to meet the rising demand. Economic studies predict an increase in the overall healthcare market to US$ 280 billion by 2020. The Indian market's high dependency on imports (over 80%) offers great opportunities for foreign manufacturers and MEDICAL FAIR INDIA provides the ideal platform to enter this market.

At the last staging of MEDICAL FAIR INDIA in March 2014, a total of 443 exhibitors and 8,013 registered trade visitors took part, further establishing its position as the most important medical event for the Indian market. With India’s booming healthcare market, the trade fair was characterized by international contacts and strong buying interest.
