Advanced Medical Technology

One in five Dutch MedTech companies is located in Brabant, and more than half of them are located in Brainport Eindhoven. The Brabant MedTech sector is a serious growth engine for the province and the country. The MedTech companies in Brabant are active in a wide variety of medical domains and markets. The domain of ‘diagnostics and medical imaging techniques’ is remarkably strongly represented. An important stimulus comes from Philips Healthcare.

High-Value MedTech

In Brabant, unique local conditions have provided a fertile ground for the establishment and growth of many MedTech businesses. Different clusters work together to provide a unique value chain for developing, producing and distributing MedTech innovations. Taken together, the complimentary, comprehensive, high-value, low-volume MedTech value chains in clusters in the Netherlands are closely interwoven. That makes Brabant suitable for medical device companies.
