UK, Germany, France Health IT Webinar

February 19, 11am - 12:30pm EST

United Kingdom (UK)

The United Kingdom continues to be one of the leading markets in Europe for e-Health solutions and products.  The public sector segment alone is expected to increase in value from £2.4 billion ($3.9 billion) to £3.5 billion ($5.7 billion) in 2016-17. Although the government is pushing for a reduction in public health care spending, it is actively promoting the adoption of e-Health technologies as part of a drive towards greater efficiency and long term savings within the system. Growth is currently being driven by reforms, particularly within the primary sector which accounts for around 19% of IT spending in the NHS.  This, together with initiatives such as the £500 million ($818 million) Technology Fund, is creating promising opportunities for private sector health providers to supply innovative goods and services. 

Germany

Representing approximately 30% of Europe’s market for eHealth solutions and products, Germany has a 6.3 billion Euro (almost US$10 billion) eHealth market that is growing – as is the rest of the European Union’s – at 11% per year. The German eHealth market is expected to almost double by 2014 to reach over 11 billion Euros (US$16.5 billion) by 2014. After 2014, growth in the telemedicine segment of the market is expected to accelerate and reach 19%.

France

France ranks among the top five largest medical device markets in the world. The medical market is predicted to rise from to USD 8.034 billion by 2018. The country’s widespread demand for telemedicine services makes the French health IT market an ideal target for U.S. firms.
