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 B&O Medicom, Brüel & Kjaer, Coloplast, Dako, GN ReSound, Invacare, Oticon, Pressalitcare, Unomedical and Widex.
A huge export success
The industry is a huge export success for Denmark over 95 percent of the total Danish industry revenue generated outside Denmark. This makes the country one of Europe’s largest exporters of medical technology products per capita.
Denmark offers a number of attractive business solutions for foreign companies, from R&D collaborations with Danish universities, establishing a European headquarter, design center or entering into a strategic partnership regarding test market and demonstration projects, to the actual production of MedTech devices.
