Organized by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), Medical Taiwan (International Medical, Health and Care Expo), and MCMEX (Medical Components & Manufacturing Expo), the B2B business platforms for the medical device and healthcare supply chains in Taiwan will go from June 27 to 30 in 2019. The shows not only facilitate exchanges between exhibitors and buyers both from home and abroad, but also create business opportunities for the industry.
Industry Clusters to Bring up Interdisciplinary Collaboration and Opportunities
With Asia Pacific continuing to lead the world in economic growth, many countries in this region are starting to formulate plans to make industry reforms happen, so as to renew the current facilities, enhance quality of medical services, as well as stimulate demands in the industry.
Taiwan government is working proactively in developing biomedical industry clusters and an ecosystem at large. A great number of advanced ICT and optoelectronic companies are located in the Neihu and Hsinchu science parks in Northern Taiwan who could help with electronic or imaging medical devices, while in Central Taiwan, there is an industry cluster on precision machinery that plays a critical role in developing minimally invasive medical devices or advanced assistive devices. In the south, it is the talent pool in the metal-mechanical industry that could come into the manufacturing of orthopaedic and dental devices.
Medical Taiwan that features three major themes: “health”, “medical”, and “care” where you can see the latest development trends of various medical devices. In concurrent with MCMEX, Taiwan’s strength on medical manufacturing will be showcased simultaneously. These two shows are the best platform to link with industrial companies from manufacture to customer services.
Ageing and Smarter Elderly Care
The world’s population over 60 years in 2017 comes to 962 million, accounting for 13% of total population. It is estimated to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. This trend is expected to boost the development of medical devices. Against the backdrop of low birth rate and possible lack of labor forces in the future, more and more smart, innovative and value-added medical and smart care solutions can been seen due to collaboration between the medical and ICT industries nowadays.
Medical Taiwan 2018 showed just that by gathering 24 Taiwanese companies at its “ER Scenario Station”, showing 75 products. It will continue to do it in 2019, building a one-stop purchasing platform on smart medical care and smart health care for international buyers.
The 2018 show attracted more than 5,000 buyers from 51 countries, and a total of 290 one-on-one trade meetings doubled the number in the previous year. This year, MCMEX joins this stage to enlarge the depth of medical system and bring more visitors to the show. For more information, please visit our official website: www.medicaltaiwan.com.tw
