Medical Area - Medical technology promotes innovation
The second user-based Area of the METAV, the Medical Area, places high quality standards on production. Here, medical technology is an obvious choice for two reasons. Firstly, with its stringent requirements and massive innovation potential, it is a driver of technological progress in production technology. There is a good reason why medical technology ranks highly in the worldwide registration of patents. Secondly, it is a segment with outstanding, long-term market perspectives. Demographic development of the world population is fuelling the demand, above all including the increasing average age in industrialised countries and the rising standard of living in numerous emerging countries.
A partner in the Area in 2018 is the Medical Technology Working Group in the VDMA.
