From March 16 – 18, 2018, MEDICAL FAIR INDIA, India's No. 1 Trade Fair for Hospitals, Health Centers and Clinics, will return to Mumbai. Organized by Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt. Ltd., the subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, MEDICAL FAIR INDIA 2018 has the support of the company’s “World of Medica” international network of representatives and MEDICA – the leading international trade fair for the medical industry held annually in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Over 500 exhibitors will present the latest developments specifically geared towards the Indian medical sector, ranging from medical, diagnostics, laboratory and rehabilitation equipment to hospital/clinic/pharmacy furnishings and products as well as communication/information technology.

India offers tremendous opportunities for medical companies to explore and expand their business in its ever booming healthcare market. Healthcare has become one of India's largest economic sectors - both in terms of revenue and employment. The country’s healthcare sector is growing at a 15 % CAGR to reach US$ 158.2 billion in 2017. Imports of medical devices and equipment in India is likely to cross US$ 4 billion mark by 2018-19 from a level of about US$ 2.3 billion in 2013/2014. The overall inflow of foreign investment in the hospital and diagnostic sector was more than US$ 1 billion during last decade and the overall FDI inflow of medical and surgical appliances is expected to be more than US$ 22 million in the next couple of years. In addition, 6 million medical tourists are targeted by 2018.

The last staging of MEDICAL FAIR INDIA in March 2017 in New Delhi recorded a visitor increase of 15% (13,480 attendees) and a 16% booked space increase by the 519 exhibitors. With these results, Medical Fair India confirmed its position as the leading medical trade fair for the Indian market.
