August 30, 2017

India is moving ahead with a plan to boost its medical device manufacturing sector, and work has begun on a 270-acre state-of-the-art park in Andhra Pradesh dedicated to medical device manufacturing.

The zone will include several scientific facilities like gamma irradiation, electric safety testing, biomaterials testing, 3-D design and printing labs in close proximity to more than 200 manufacturing units. Contracts for all the scientific facilities have already been signed with the respective service providers and the first model factory is expected to be ready by mid-October.

The zone will include an expo hall, convention center, and warehouse space to “provide a holistic ecosystem for growth of the medical device manufacturing industry in India.”
