About India Healthcare

India has become the world’s fastest growing major economy. It is the world’s 9th largest economy by GDP (+7.8%) and the third largest in purchasing power parity (PPP). India’s rapidly growing middle class is now larger in size than the entire USA middle class. Medical tourism is growing 27% annually and will reach $6 billion in 2018. These trends have resulted in the following:

  • An increase in healthcare expenditures that reached $160 billion in 2017 and is to reach $280 billion by 2020.
  • The medical device market will reach $9 billion in 2018 with 50% + of devices to be imported (driven by new specialty and super-specialty hospitals).


Against this background, a collaboration between Messe Düssedorf India and Scherago International/Burklund-IVD resulted in the successful of launch Clin Lab India in 2017. The event is co-located with Medical Fair India (MFI), an already established medical event that alternates each year between New Delhi and Mumbai. The 2018 visitor registration of MFI reached 12,800.
