It is one of the fastest growing markets for companies dealing with technologies for age related conditions. Good trade relations with the EU have resulted in smoother access to the market. Many distributors of European medical devices already have a foothold in Korea. 62% of the demand in the Korean medical industry relies on imports, particularly for expensive equipment such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
