Getinge, a prominent medtech powerhouse, stands poised to redefine the Indian market by harnessing the potential of its India Innovation Centre (IIC) and forging strategic alliances with industry and academia to address global needs. The company holds a remarkable market share in India across various product categories, such as ventilators (30%), heart-lung machines (50%), intra-aortic balloon pumps (70%), extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) (90%), and operating room tables (25%).

Aruna Nayak, Managing Director of Getinge India Pvt. Ltd., underscored the company’s critical role in bolstering India’s healthcare sector, notably during the COVID-19 pandemic. Getinge provided indispensable support to healthcare professionals by delivering record installations of advanced ventilators and ECMO products. Additionally, their service engineers efficiently managed nearly 10,000 service calls related to these devices.

Nayak further noted that India is now among Getinge’s top 10 markets worldwide, and the company is actively collaborating with 10,000 Indian hospitals to develop a world-class infrastructure. Getinge is dedicated to introducing, manufacturing, and distributing state-of-the-art technologies and devices in India, ensuring their availability in the US and the European Union. As healthcare infrastructure investments continue to increase, the company is prepared to cater to the Indian market with its high-quality products.

To further their objectives in India, Getinge launched an Innovation Centre in Bangalore in January 2020. This facility concentrates on the development of cutting-edge and economically viable solutions for emergency critical care and clinical trials. Furthermore, Getinge has partnered with IIT Bombay’s School of Biomedical Engineering to develop inventive and cost-effective emergency critical care solutions, incorporating knowledge gained from the pandemic.

Getinge’s Innovation Centre in Bengaluru houses dedicated laboratories equipped with high-speed computing capabilities to simulate real-life challenges with software and medical equipment. This advanced setup enables the creation of comprehensive intensive care solutions and automated testing programs for medical equipment with minimal human intervention.
