SDI, Scottish Enterprise and ABHI invite you to join us for an introduction to the UAE Medtech market, where you’ll hear from a range of speakers on the Middle East healthcare market and find out how to position your business for success in the Middle East.
If you are an SME that is new to export or new to the Middle Eastern markets, this event will introduce you to the opportunities and challenges of exporting into this market place.
The market for medical devices in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was estimated at US$0.8bn in 2013, largely supplied by imports from the US, Europe and China. Driven by population growth, changing population demographics, improvements in the healthcare infrastructure, expansion of health insurance and increases in healthcare expenditure, in combination with an ambition to be a centre for medical tourism, this market is predicted to have a CAGR of 8.7%, and to reach US$1.3bn by 2018.
In addition, the state’s zero corporate tax policy in combination with an excellent logistics infrastructure makes the UAE a desirable location for a regional hub within the Middle East for many leading medical device multinationals.
