The Future Was Omnipresent Once Again

The Compamed in Düsseldorf, the international leading trade fair for the medical technology supplier sector, which is always held alongside the world’s biggest medical trade fair Medica, was on top form once more this year. Halls 8a and 8b of the Düsseldorf trade fair center were completely full, holding 783 exhibitors from forty countries – making it more international than ever before.

The business field peripheral to Compamed is also experiencing a positive boost: According to the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI), turnover for German medical technology providers grew by 2.5 % in 2017, to almost 30 billion Euro, with the foreign market constituting almost 19 billion Euro. The number of employees in this segment also grew by 3.9 %, to 137,900. Every single trade association assumes that it will experience further growth which could even be up to 6 % when considered globally. Medical technology suppliers will also benefit from this.

Microsystems and sensors, active implants, special adhesives, linear technology, packaging, high-tech machine construction, and even 3D printing: Compamed 2018 offered full halls, but more importantly, it offered a wide spectrum of innovative solutions for medical technology.

Compamed is going to be back 18 – 21 November 2019. (Source: Messe Düsseldorf)
