  • knowledge of design, engineering and clinical competence – the three main building blocks of the medical technology industry
  • an industry in continuous progress and growth

Danish medical technology in a global perspective

Considering the small size of the country – counting a mere 5.5 million inhabitants or roughly 1.4 percent of the total EU population – Danish medical technology companies hold a significant position in terms of medical technology producers in Europe with a critical mass of world leading industry players like Bang & Olufson Medicom, Coloplast, Dako - An Agilent Technologies Company, GN ReSound, Invacare, Oticon, Philips Healthcare, Widex and William Cook Europe. 

A huge export success

The industry is a huge export success for Denmark: Over 95 percent of the total Danish industry revenue is generated outside Denmark. This makes the country one of Europe’s largest exporters of medical technology products per capita.
