The 2019 Medical Taiwan and Taiwan Medical Components & Manufacturing Expo (MCMEX) concluded successfully on June 30. Over 6,000 buyers came to make purchases. The top 10 international buyers came from China, Vietnam, Japan, the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. Many exhibitors noted that this year, many Southeast Asian companies made inquiries, which will help explore opportunities in the developing market in Southeast Asia.
TAITRA and the Taiwan Medical and Biotech Industry Association (TMBIA) jointly launched the Smart OR Scenario Pavilion this year, showcasing 60 MIT high-end medical equipment and devices from a total of 18 manufacturers, including the Extracorporeal Shockwave Lithotripter & Therapy of Lite-Med, the patient monitor of COMDEK, the surgical navigation system of Eped, the surgical robot arm of Hiwin Technologies, and the imaging and tomography scanner of Apixia.
TMBIA said the scenario pavilion was more active than last year. Within the current global market competition, groups on display are able to garner more attention. Uniting Taiwanese suppliers to promote a joint brand as a national team isn't only an embodiment, it serves as an opportunity to boost Taiwan's visibility in the global market.
MEDICAL TAIWAN, a new brand in 2019 that combines MEDICARE and SenCARE, focuses on three fields - Medical, Health and Care - to create the only B2B business platform in the medical device and healthcare industry in Taiwan.
Juan-J. Carmona Schneider, EEN convener for the medical industry, came to Taiwan last year to visit Medical Taiwan. This year, he led a group of eight companies from Germany, Spain, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic, significantly recognizing the transformation vis-à-vis the integration of MEDICARE and SenCARE this year. In particular, the participation of a number of hospitals in conjunction with medical components or system vendors has demonstrated the strength of software and hardware integration into Taiwan's medical industry.
The overseas media from 13 countries that visited Taiwan are optimistic about the prospects of Taiwan's smart medical care. Taiwan has a high degree of mastery and innovation in the medical application of the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence. Suppliers who were contract manufacturers in the past and first-grade medical component manufacturers are also trying to break through, aiming at manufacturing high-tech medical components and establishing their own brands, which is expected to drive the development of Taiwan's medical industry.
During the exhibition, the Medical Taiwan Forum and the Medical Taiwan Forum-Smart Senior Care discussed the development and application of AI and big data in the medical industry, as well as the challenges facing the senior care industry and long-term care business opportunities. The Forum attracted a total of 500 participants.
Through the exhibition's links and integration, Taiwan's medical industry saw multi-disciplinary collaboration. We welcome you to visit the website for further information about the show. www.medicaltaiwan.com.tw
