Germany is the biggest importer of medical devices within the EU. In addition to many well established medical equipment manufacturers, the size of Germany’s own healthcare sector drives innovation. Germany’s electro-medical equipment export volume exceeded 13 € billion in 2018.
The medical equipment industry saw above 4 % growth rates within the last couple of years and expected to expand further. Since the domestic healthcare industry constitutes about 12 % of the gross domestic product, the used medical equipment market in Germany offers plentiful opportunities as well.
