Innovative medical technology is an increasingly important driver for delivering efficiencies in the global healthcare system. Through advances in medical technology, precision engineering, micro-manufacturing processes, and IT, medical devices and solutions have become more sophisticated, accurate and effective.
As a specialist exhibition on manufacturing processes for medical technology, the 4th edition of MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA will focus on new manufacturing technology and automation which play vital roles in driving innovation and operations. The upcoming edition will highlight companies that cover the spectrum of additive manufacturing or 3D printing technologies, imaging and diagnostic imaging solutions, as well as nano manufacturing and automated solutions.
Singapore continues to grow its medtech presence on the world stage, with a sizeable number of complex scientific instruments already designed and manufactured in the country, the 3-day exhibition strongly reflects Singapore’s focus on moving upstream to not just production but also value engineering. For companies keen on engaging global medtech companies and see Singapore as an ideal base to develop products for the Asian region, MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2018 provides a highly relevant springboard.
MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2018 comes against a dynamic backdrop which sees the Asia Pacific medtech market expected to surpass the European Union by 2020 as the world’s second largest medtech market after the United States1, while on the global front, the medtech sector is expected to grow 5 per cent or more annually through to 2022, to reach nearly US$530 billion2.
With Singapore’s positioning as Asia’s top location for medtech and home to over 30 globally recognised medtech companies, MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2018 continues to attract a highly international exhibitor base coming mainly from Asia and Europe and a trade visitor base that is predominantly represented by the medical devices and instruments, medical and healthcare, and electrical and electronic sectors from around the region.
Complementing the exhibition is the half-day forum on High-technology for Medical Devices where exhibitors will present and share latest developments and trends on the global and domestic fronts and market opportunities for medtech products from Europe. Organised by IVAM Microtechnology Network, the German-based international association has an extensive membership with companies in the fields of microtechnology, nanotechnology, advanced materials, and photonics.
MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2018 is also synergistically co-located with the region’s leading medical and healthcare exhibition, MEDICAL FAIR ASIA – thus providing an end-to-end solutions and business sourcing platform across the entire value chain for the medical, healthcare, medical manufacturing and medtech sectors. MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA, jointly organised by SPETA (Singapore Precision Engineering and Technology Association) and Messe Düsseldorf Asia, is modelled after the No. 1 global trade fair in the medtech sector, COMPAMED, that is held in Düsseldorf, Germany.
The 4th edition of MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA is fast gaining traction as the region’s leading specialist trade exhibition for the medtech and medical manufacturing sectors. Following the success of the 2016 edition, the exhibition welcomed 200 companies from 18 countries, and 5,420 trade visitors from 52 countries. The 2018 edition will feature even more innovations from an expected 250 companies from 20 countries and see more than 6,000 trade visitors.
