- 1300 square meters to present 130 French Companies
- 30% of new exhibitors to introduce a whole new range of expertise in hospital furnishings & equipment, hygiene and risk prevention, diagnostics and implants
United Arab Emirates;December 18, 2017 - 130 French companies will be participating in the Middle East's largest healthcare exhibition from 29 January to 1 February 2018 on the French Pavilion. 33 companies will be visiting Dubai for the first time. Occupying an exhibition space of almost 1,300 m2, they will showcase their expertise in a wide variety of areas: hospital furnishings and equipment, hygiene and risk prevention, diagnostics, and implants.
The pavilion run by Business France will showcase the latest French innovations at Arab Health 2018. The technicality of these innovations is in line with the requirements of the highly demanding, fast-developing local market.
In 2017, France's medical device market reported a turnover of €28 billion, generated by over 1,300 companies (92% of which are SMEs). The industrial sector employs 85,000 people in France. Growth in the sector is driven by exports, turnover from which is increasing by 5% annually. International development and R&D are the two main growth drivers for SMEs, and constitute a business model that 65% have chosen to adopt.
The medical devices sector in France pursues a three-pronged growth strategy based on ‘rational innovation, international development and external growth', with exports being the main driver given the slowdown in the domestic market. In this regard, innovation is still a vital necessity for these companies. This is reflected in their efforts to develop solutions that incorporate new functionalities, based in particular on e-health technologies.
The following sectors will be the most strongly represented in the French Pavilion:
Hospital furnishings and equipment: medical beds, trolleys, wheelchairs, surgery lamps, dialysis chairs, gynaecology chairs, etc.
Prevention and management of hospital risks/hospital hygiene: air treatment and purification, hospital waste management, ventilation systems, decontamination of effluents, sterilisation and disinfection equipment, cold chain monitoring, temperature monitoring systems, etc.
Diagnostics: ultrasound diagnostic equipment, ultrasound scanners, Doppler scanners, endoscopes, X-ray units, etc.
Implants: arthroscopic, orthopaedic, gastric and intraocular implants, or surgical implants for cardiovascular, gastrointestinal and urological procedures, etc.
With the help of five regional partners — DEV'UP, Lille Eurasanté, Bretagne Commerce International, Medicalps (a healthcare technologies cluster in Grenoble-Isère) and, for the first time, Nouvelle Aquitaine.
This year the French pavilion at Arab Health is organized in partnership with Dubai Science Park (DSP), the vibrant, holistic, science-focused freezone community, dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs, SMEs and MNEs.
