At the EuroMold 2005 world fair for tool and mould making, design and application development taking place in Frankfurt November 30–December 3, a highlighted topic will be the growing medical technology market. The German medical technology industry is—after the United States—a leading force in the world market, according to a survey ordered by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and published in April.
This market is characterized by high-quality development and rapid innovation potential: every second product is less than two years old. Market volume is about €18 billion. Experts assume continuing worldwide growth at least until 2010.
EuroMold is the first trade fair ever to present the multidisciplinary field of research and application in medical technology in terms of the complete process chain from design via prototyping to series production. Exhibitors from various areas, including product development, microinjection moulding, medical optics, medical design, cleanroom technology, rapid prototyping, tool and mould making, CE and FDA certification, and other sectors, will be presented in Hall 5.0 of the Frankfurt Exhibition Centre, organized to reflect the process chain. Thirty-two exhibitors had booked by press time.
To accentuate the special topic optically, fair organizer DEMAT GmbH has developed a very attractive booth concept based on a large table that will be exhibition space and meeting point at once. Each booth module will be available from two sides such that visitors can approach selected exhibitors or explore the complete competence network. The idea is to offer an ideal business-to-business atmosphere for both EuroMold visitors and exhibitors.
