We also provide support for companies and institutions looking to have a standing on the global stage through multilateral technology and R&D programs and European technology platforms.

Global Health Sector Opportunities
The Turkish healthcare sector has made great progress thanks to increased accessibility, investments by the public and private sectors, and its structure through which it can provide world-class healthcare services with its strong infrastructure. There are around 1400 domestic manufacturers in the medical devices sector, and they manufacture a wide range of products from simple consumables to medium- and high-technology products which are in compliance with the European Union regulations and quality standards.
Sistem Global, which began operating in the UK in recent years as part of its steps to globalization, is opening the doors to the UK for the Turkish healthcare companies through its collaboration with Vera Global (a London-based company with a 17-year experience in the Turkish healthcare sector). With its qualified staff, Sistem Global aims to create the opportunity of a new market for healthcare companies, particularly those wishing to make sales in the UK and enter the market.
The healthcare sector, which is one of the largest industries in the UK, continues to maintain and even increase its importance in the wake of the pandemic. In the healthcare sector with its very wide framework, the market size in the UK, which has a particularly large medical devices sector, being the 2nd and 6th largest in Europe and the world, respectively, is over £10 billion.
Local medical device manufacturers consist of small-scale manufacturers. There are around 3000 local medical device manufacturers. Companies, including American manufacturers and those from other countries, make sales through their companies or affiliates in the UK. The strong suit of UK manufacturers mostly consists of orthopedics, imaging devices and cardiac devices. In addition to purchases from local manufacturers, the UK constantly imports a large number of medical devices. Entrance to the market can take some time and resources due to fierce competition. Here, the NHS (National Health Service) in particular, is completely a government agency and the most important purchaser of medical devices and other healthcare products. Reaching the NHS, which has approximately 1260 hospitals, is possible through proper pricing, tender follow-up, and proper management of procurement processes. The NHS is also the world’s largest employer with 1.3 million employees. During non-pandemic periods, approximately 835,000 people visit the healthcare centers, 50,000 people receive emergency services and 36,000 people visit the hospitals by appointment on a daily basis.
