It is with great pleasure that we present to you the 2015 edition of The European Medical Technology Industry In Figures.
These new statistics show that the medical technology industry continues to be one of Europe’s most diverse and innovative hightech sectors. It is, in many ways, a model European industry.
95% of Europe’s 25,000 medical technology companies are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
The industry invests heavily to continuously improve its technologies and come up with breakthrough innovations. It files more patents than any other sector, provides over 575,000 jobs in Europe and delivers a positive trade balance of €14 billion.
