The global Med Tech market is projected to grow at a rate of 4.4% annually, making it one of the fastest developing industry sectors. The stage is set for Singapore to grow into a vibrant, global Med Tech hub with an industry-ready workforce, “plug and play” infrastructure, and the growth of public-private partnerships, along with considerable government support.
For example, SPRING Singapore runs a $40 million Biomedical Sciences Accelerator (BSA) programme to support new Med Tech companies. The Singapore-Stanford Biodesign programme is training the next generation of Med Tech innovators. Dedicated infrastructure in the form of MedTech1, a 9-story 38,000sqm facility, is set to open in Q1 2014 and will provide ready-built space to the industry.
Singapore’s local Med Tech sector has already been reported to include more than 30 companies that have contributed S$4.3 billion in manufacturing output in 2011 for regional and global markets. New implantable devices such as drug-eluting or resorbable heart stents and robotic rehabilitation aids have been reported to boost healthcare productivity.
