The healthcare market in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries represents an outstanding business opportunity for U.S. companies. A fast growing population, rising income levels, increased prevalence of sedentary lifestyle diseases, and trend towards implementation of mandatory health insurance are key drivers behind the growing demand for quality healthcare in the region[1]. Consequently, GCC governments are making significant investments to build healthcare infrastructure and improve the quality of healthcare delivery to international standards[2]. During the 2013-2018 period, healthcare spending is projected to triple to US $133bn while growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.3%[3]. In 2012, U.S. exports of medical equipment to the Middle East region amounted to $1.1bn[4]. These statistics provide an idea of the magnitude in US $’s of the business opportunity for U.S. companies.

Through Trade Fair Certification, the U.S. Commercial Service recognizes the capability and exhibition experience of Kallman Worldwide to organize a world class event for U.S. exhibitors to showcase products and services for the aerospace/defense industry.
