The medical devices sector is expected to implement “high and sustainable growth potential due to global trends, including economic growth, an aging population, and a growing interest in health.”

“Our medical devices industry took a leap forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, we need to develop long-term support strategies to ensure the industry’s sustainable growth and maintain its export momentum,” Minister of Health and Welfare Cho KyooHong said in a government statement.

“In this context, we have developed the first long-term comprehensive plan under the ‘Act on Nurturing Medical Devices Industry and Supporting Innovative Medical Devices’ to help the industry become globally competitive and lead the broader bio-health industry, and we will work even harder to strengthen cooperation with the industry and secure necessary budget,” he added.
