More than 260 exhibitors from 17 countries are expected to showcase the newest technologies and equipment for the medical industry to about 6,000 attendees.

Messe Duesseldorf officials have said before last year’s show, “This exhibition will enable Indian entrepreneurs to explore the immense potential of the Indian medical/healthcare sector and pave the way for mutually beneficial partnerships between Indian businessmen and the exhibitors.”
The Indian health care sector is on track to become a $280 billion industry by 2020, with spending on health estimated to grow 14 percent annually, according to a report by an industry body.
At present, the sector is estimated to be around $40 billion and will grow to $78.6 billion by 2012.
Better standard of living, improved education and increasing incidence of lifestyle diseases is triggering a higher demand for modern, quicker treatment methods and newer forms of therapy/diagnosis, according to Messe Duesseldorf officials.
