Korea is an attractive market for UK healthcare companies

The Korean healthcare market holds huge potential for businesses with an 2015 estimate value of £2.4b and projected at £4.4b by 2020. The sector is continuously growing at a rapid pace with the increasing support from the Korean government to commercialise innovative and digital healthcare technology. Overseas business, investment and trades are on constant demand from the government, major hospitals, large conglomerates and a growing number of tech start-ups. Following the demand for quality healthcare services and medicine is rapidly rising due to the increase in chronic diseases, aging population, this makes the country an ideal market for UK companies. 

Furthermore, UK is perceived as a world leading country in the field of digital healthcare technology, especially genomics and smart healthcare. This is a huge boost in reputation and network for UK healthcare businesses when entering Korea.
