13/09/2018For some time now, two essential trends have been dominating the field of medical technology and are ensuring short innovation cycles: dematerialization and digitalization. Accordingly, products are increasingly becoming more compact whilst their performance remains the same or is improved, they are increasingly easy to use and as a whole, innovations are driven by software and less by hardware.
17/07/2018The market for medical technology and products is characterized by sustainable growth. The innovation cycles are short. However, approval procedures differ widely from country to country and are very complex as a whole. Restrictions due to trade policies and exchange rate fluctuations are further challenges that providers have to face.
02/07/2018For years, almost no other industry has been shaped so much by sustainable growth as the medical technology industry and its suppliers. Furthermore, there are practically no other industries in which it is so imperative to remain at the cutting edge of progress and gain information on new products, trends and technology.
25/05/2018Messe Düsseldorf and the IVAM Microtechnology Network hosted the 12th edition of the COMPAMED Spring Convention, offering a sneak preview of the trends at COMPAMED. With almost 800 exhibitors at last count, COMPAMED is the leading international specialist trade fair for medical technology suppliers, taking place annually in Düsseldorf.
27/11/2017The smallest components – medical technology requires smart solutions – are still rapidly advancing.
16/11/2017“MEDICA and COMPAMED have always had a high degree of international impact, and this remains their trump card. Top decision makers from around the world come together here and see the huge breadth of what we have on offer, which is the international frontrunner and has yet to be beaten”, Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf, said, summing up the four-day run of both shows.
18/10/2017The number of people in Germany who work in the health sector has increased to more than seven million for the first time during the period from 2016. The health industry's industrial segment alone now provides jobs for a good 900,000 people and therefore 100,000 more than the automotive industry does.
