Bavaria as a location for medical technology

Medical technology is one of the most important drivers of the Bavarian economy. The state is home to the enterprise and expertise of over 530 innovative, mostly medium-sized firms and their approximately 30,000 highly qualified employees, giving the region a leadership role in medical technology in Germany and in Europe.

Over 60% of Germany's production of electrical medical devices and around 30% of the country's entire output of medical technology products takes place in Bavaria, with an export quota of around 70%. An outstanding location for technology, business and health care institutions, Bavaria also boasts a top-class medical-clinical infrastructure.

As a consequence, Bavaria is ideally placed to go on to develop further innovative, cutting-edge products and consolidate its position of leadership.
