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. India’s rapidly growing middle class is now larger in size than the entire USA middle class. These trends have resulted an increase in healthcare expenditures that will reach $160 billion in 2017, a doubling of the 2014 expenditures of $81.3 billion.
Against this background, we are pleased to announce a collaboration between Messe Düssedorf India and Scherago International to launch Clin Lab India. The event will be co-located with Medical Fair India (MFI) 6-8 April 2017 at the Pragati Maidan Exhibition and Conference Center in New Delhi. MFI alternates each year between New Delhi and Mumbai.
In its 23rd year, Medical Fair India has demonstrated impressive growth since 2012:
- Exhibitor growth of 12.6% CAGR reaching 512 companies in 2016.
- Visitor growth of 12.3 CAGR reaching 11,720 visitors in 2016
