Thailand shows potential in preparing the country as a major Asian medical hub

Thailand offers opportunities for medical companies looking to enter the Asian markets. The market size of medical equipment in Thailand is anticipated to expand by 10% from 48 billion THB in 2016 to 58 billion THB in 2018. In 2015, imports of medical device increased 10.8% and exports of medical device increased 8.5%, reflecting the stable progress in Thailand's healthcare sector. Thailand's medical device market has grown due to several factors. The rising number of medical tourists and the improvement of the living standards in Thailand, coupled with the government's efforts to develop Thailand into a top medical destination, have led to improvement in this field.

MDA 2018 fully supported by local government and private organizations

Mr. Loy Joon How, General Manager, IMPACT Exhibition Management Co., Ltd., shared "IMPACT is fully committed to creating the most comprehensive platform for medical devices, technologies, services and general healthcare industries, under the theme of "Building the Future of Healthcare".
