Domestic political situation keeps German sales in check

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

German medical technology sales rose by 2% in 2005, an improvement on the 1.5% growth seen in 2004, but still far behind the international average, which, as in 2004, was 7%. So said industry association BVMed this week, reporting on the sales and profits of its 210 member companies. They seemed to perform marginally better in Germany than those of fellow industry association Spectaris, however; its member companies recorded a 2% drop in sales to the German market in 2005 (see Clinica No 1193, p 5).
