Ontario remains committed to creating opportunities for our business community to help them remain strong and get back up and running during these unprecedented times. As a part of this commitment, the Government of Ontario is offering a series of free webinars to help reboot your export business.    
The webinar will outline opportunities associated with selling medical equipment, devices and technologies to India. The session aims to assist companies wishing to further understand the health care market. A growing population of 1.3 billion people, rising incomes, an increase in the prevalence of disease, and popularity of medical tourism are driving medical investments in India. Due to its strong market potential, investment in India's healthcare infrastructure is set to rise, benefiting hospitals, healthcare R&D and healthcare education in the country. Most public and private hospitals have incorporated customized hospital management systems and other medical-based IT products.
The Indian market for medical device technology and medical products is thriving and will be among the fastest-growing markets worldwide in the coming years. The market, which is forecast to rise to $65 billion (US$50 billion) by 2025, is considered the fourth largest in Asia after Japan, China and South Korea. India imports nearly 80 per cent of its medical devices and presents a significant opportunity for international exporters.
Participants will learn about:
  • Current trends in the health care industry and insights on how to effectively penetrate the Indian market, particularly in a post-COVID-19 environment
  • The latest Indian government reforms and initiatives and the potential impact on the health care industry
  • Opportunities to showcase your products and services at Indian trade shows such as Medical Fair India 2021
