26 Jul News from Hospitalar 2018
For the eighth consecutive year, Power-Packer exhibited our innovative actuation systems for medical applications at Hospitalar 2018, an event considered to be the leading health fair in Brazil and Latin America. Held each May in São Paulo, Brazil, Hospitalar features products that span all healthcare needs — from the most sophisticated and advanced medical technologies to standard equipment and disposable materials.
“Hospitalar is a key branding opportunity for us,” noted Daniel Nascimento, sales leader for Power-Packer Brazil. “Power-Packer is the global leader in hydraulic motion control systems for medical applications, and this event allows us to bring our innovative, hydraulic solutions for patient handling directly to industry decision-makers.”
Brazil’s Medical Device Market
The Brazilian medical device sector is the largest medical device market in Latin America, and one of the top 10 medical device markets in the world. By 2020, sales of medical devices in Brazil are expected to reach $13.1 billion. The country has the fourth largest medical population in the world with 1.8 doctors for every 1,000 people.
“In our eight years of exhibiting, Power-Packer has seen our sales presence in Brazil, Colombia, Peru and other countries in Latin America more than triple,” Nascimento shared. “We expect to see continued growth and demand for hydraulic and electro-hydraulic technology in medical furniture and equipment throughout the region.” He added, “And with a manufacturing facility right in São Paulo, we’re an ideal supplier to customers in Brazil and other countries in South America.”
