Hessen’s central position in Europe and Frankfurt International Airport, continental Europe’s Center for Finance, makes it an optimal location for international business. Companies benefit from an extremely innovative and a productive work environment with highly skilled professionals. Health-IT companies have tremendous opportunities in Germany with its aging population. Their client-bases and demand for inventive and effective products will increase in order to keep down Germany’s cost of quality healthcare. According to OECD Health Data 2012, Germany will see a 2.8% increase in annual average expenditure in healthcare during 2012-2016 and a forecast of about €335 billion expenditure by 2016.
Hessen’s medical technology sector has 20,000 employees and 1,100 companies, 100+ scientific institutions, and 32 Technology/Incubator Centers located mostly in the Hessian cities of Darmstadt, Giessen and Kassel. Its Health-IT industry is comprised of small innovative technology developers to international corporations, such as Fresenius, B. Braun Melsungen AG and Abbott Diagnostics and Mechatronic AG, which traditionally invest more than the average in research and development. Also, Hessen has about 94,000 employees at more than 10,000 IT companies such Software AG, Computer Associates, Avaya, Cisco Systems, and Dell.
