Medicine, medtech equipment and apparatuses make up a still bigger share of Denmark’s exports, according to a new report from the government-commissioned growth team for health and welfare solutions. Here are some of the facts:
Exports from the life science sector accounted for almost 12 % of the total Danish exports of goods in 2011. The largest commodity group was medicine, which made up 9.5 %. By comparison exports of medicine accounted for just 3.5 % in 1990. Companies within healthcare-related IT and service and operational solutions are more focused on the home market, however.
