Sandvik at Medical Fair India

The 26th edition of Medical Fair India 2020 will be launched from 5 to 7 March 2020 at the Bombay Convention and Exhibition Centre in Mumbai. It is India's leading healthcare exhibition, conference and business platform.

Sandvik will exhibit at Medical Fair India for the first time and you’ll find us at booth G22 in hall 1.

We see a huge potential for our EXERA® precision medical wire and wire-based products. Typical applications for EXERA® wire are:

  • Pacemakers and catheters used to treat cardiovascular, endovascular and peripheral vascular disorders
  • Cochlear remediation that helps treat hearing disorders by stimulating the nerves in cochlear and middle ear implants as well as stimulating acoustic signals in bone conduction systems
  • Sensing solutions used in sensor applications such as continuous glucose monitoring devices (CGMs) to measure blood glucose levels in real-time and thermocouples, used to treat tachycardia and atrial fibrillation
  • Stimulation therapy used in neurostimulation devices that include spinal cord stimulation and deep brain stimulation, which has proved to be effective in controlling movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease or epilepsy

For three days over 500 exhibitors from 20 countries, half domestic and half foreign, will meet and share ideas. India is one of the fastest-growing markets for medical technology in the world and planned investments in hospital expansion and the introduction of state health insurance for lower-income groups will boost demand for medical products.

Trade relations between Sweden and India dates back almost 300 years. In recent years, India has become a global innovation and start-up hub. Sandvik came to India more than 50 years ago, after Jawaharlal Nehru, the country's first prime minister, visited Sandvik's headquarters and factory in Sweden and invited the company to establish itself in India. Today Sandvik has 2,500 employees in Pune and seven other locations in India. In Pune, Sandvik's facility is close to several other Swedish companies in an area jokingly called "Svea Nagar" (Swedish village). The 8,700 square meter facility includes both research and development operations and the headquarters for production and sales. Inside the facility is a daycare center for employees' children.

Today, there are over 200 registered Swedish companies in India that indirectly employs over 1.2 million people. In line with development and urbanization, the match between Swedish expertise and the Indian market demand is rapidly increasing.

As part of the MEDICAlliance family of medical fairs, Medical Fair India is organized by Messe Düsseldorf India in cooperation with the team of the world's largest medical fair MEDICA.
