Opportunity in India - June 2007

India is an obvious "potential" market for any UK company considering exports. But it is important that it is seen as a very sophisticated market. It has a middle class of 300 million people who want access to all the products common to the UK High Street.  They may not yet have the purchasing power to buy at UK prices, but they do have the capability to enter into partnerships to produce locally at local prices. 

This report highlights on the opportunities and expressed need in Indian Economy for all these trade clusters:

Medical Technologies (biotech & pharmaceuticals; healthcare)
Transport Technologies (aviation, automotive, infrastructure)
Business Professional Services (education & training, insurance, tariffs)
Tourism and Leisure (heritage & restoration, travel and tourism)
Food and Drink
Information Communication Technologies (telecom)
Screen, Image and Sound (media)
The above highlights serve to illustrate the fact that India is ready to do business in almost every sector. It is a market, which is set to continuing growing for at least another 30 years as a result of its own demography.

Healthcare Sector - December 2006

Kolkata is emerging as a private healthcare destination. Many hospitals are expanding to meet demand from patients in Eastern India and neighbouring countries - Bangladesh, Nepal, Myanmar and Bhutan. The total investment by the private sector in hospital/healthcare infrastructure in Kolkata has been over 115 million in the last four to five years.
Currently, there are 12 private hospitals, under the banner of Association of Hospitals in Eastern India (AHEI). Between them, they offer general care and the following specializations: neurology, oncology, child & mother, cardiac, lifestyle diseases, and emergency & trauma care. UKTI has good relations with these hospitals, who all met the visiting Healthcare Export Promoter, David Hawkins, in November 2006.

Healthcare and Medical Sector Review - November 2006

The Indian healthcare & medical equipment sector holds good business opportunities for UK healthcare companies. According to The Economic Times Healthcare 2001-02 Report, India's healthcare industry grew at 13% per annum over the last decade and is currently growing at 17% annually. The report expects healthcare delivery will reach a size of Rs 1862 billion ( 26.6 billion) by 2005-06.
The growth is being propelled by an increasingly affluent and more consumer-orientated middle class population of 100 million who are seeking and willing to pay for a higher standard of healthcare. The private sector is playing an increasingly important role in the provision of healthcare services. According to a theme paper on healthcare produced by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) the private sector attends to over 75% of medical complaints and accounts for 88% of total health expenditure.

Healthcare, Apollo Group : India's first global healthcare major - February 2005

November 9, 1979 is a date that Dr. Prathap C Reddy has not forgotten and perhaps never will. That day, he got an urgent call to attend on a man barely in his thirties, who'd suffered a heart attack. But he could not be saved. He left behind a young wife and two toddlers.
Dr. Reddy was devastated. At that time, it was generally believed that only elders would fall prey to CAD (Coronary Artery Disease). How could a person who was in the prime of his youth die of CAD?

Healthcare, Medical Tourism : Providing Value for Money - February 2005

In 2002, the National Health Services (NHS) in the UK started a pilot scheme for 'overseas treatment' to see if surgery services abroad could be bought to shorten the waiting lists. The project focused mainly on facilities available in the European Union, in countries like Spain and Netherlands. There was only one problem: there was a waiting list - albeit shorter-in these countries too.

Speciality Chemicals : The India Advantage - January 2005

When Bayer's anti-oxidant unit at Elprat in Spain was shut down some years ago, the German chemical giant had to shift its production to India. Today, Bayer's global requirement for an entire range of anti-oxidants, which are used in tyres and industrial rubber goods, is sourced from Thane in Maharashtra, India. In September 2004, Bayer made public its plans to source specialty chemicals from India instead of US and some European countries.

Healthcare: Heart Care in India Becomes Serious - May 2004

The economic boom might have turned India into a country of thriving careers and unlimited business opportunities, but a worrying picture is also beginning to emerge in India's booming metropolitan cities.

Healthcare: Remote Barefoot Doctors - April 2004

A developing country's social sector numbers have always been impeded by its government's inability to provide healthcare in remote villages. China once tried to solve this problem by forcing its urban doctors to migrate to villages and work there, giving rise to the phenomenon of barefoot doctors. In a democracy like India, this hasn't been possible, so novel alternative solutions are essential.
