Ireland’s medtech sector has grown exponentially from 50 companies 20 years ago to 350 today. In fact, 15 of the world’s top 20 medical device companies have a base in Ireland and the sector employs an impressive 38,000 people throughout the country — the largest medtech employer per capita in Europe. The strength of Ireland’s homegrown industry is clear: one in five is employed directly by Irish-owned medtech companies.
It’s no surprise that Ireland exports €12.6bn worth of goods to 100 countries each year — a number that’s expected to increase thanks to a strong emphasis on research, development and innovation.
World-class capabilities in research combined with intensive collaboration between companies, research institutions and clinicians make Ireland the perfect platform for medtech companies to start, innovate and scale.
