The global market for medical hygiene products, applications, services, and manufacturing has grown significantly in recent years. The mounting impact of the COVID-19 outbreak has further generated a global surge in demands for epidemic prevention supplies.
Wearing face masks and maintaining hand sanitation are among the most effective ways to combat the COVID-19 outbreak. In an effort to meet domestic demands, early on during the outbreak, the Taiwan government took swift and proactive initiative to work with industries to boost face mask production. In early March, after just a short few weeks, Taiwan will become the second largest face mask manufacturing country.
In addition to face masks, global demands for other epidemic prevention products are growing as well, including consumable alcohol cotton pads, protective clothing, forehead thermometers, medical gloves, infrared sensors, hygiene and disinfecting products. Meanwhile, demands for smart medical devices or equipment have also increased significantly.
TAITRA will hold MEDICAL TAIWAN on 11-13 June at the TaiNEX 2 exhibition hall. MEDICAL TAIWAN is a one stop platform that showcases a complete health ecosystem in the B2B medical and health industry. In 2019, the show generated a total attendance of over 50,000 visits from 47 countries or regions. Attendance is expected to grow by a further 5% this year.
In conjunction with MEDICAL TAIWAN, Taiwan Medical Component & Manufacturing Expo (MCMEX) will be offering the most comprehensive medical supply chain for medical manufacturing.
In addition, in the Smart Medical Area, there will be most innovative medical robots, telecare Solutions, Wearable Technologies, and medical devices with IoT Applications.
