With a R&D and innovation team at neighboring cities Pimpri and Chakan the Healthcare Innovation Center supports Philips’ local and global strategy in image-guided therapy. It also manufactures ‘fixed’ imaging equipment for minimally invasive treatment of life threatening ailments like cardiovascular diseases reports Business Standard.

Sameer Garde, president, South Asia, Philips Healthcare, said the medical devices and equipment market in India was pegged at $4.8 billion  and 75 per cent of the products were imported. “We want to bring down these numbers and HIC will play a crucial role. The products manufactured at HIC grew 24 per cent year-on-year. We expect HIC to grow faster than in 2014,” he said.
