Why Vietnam?

  • As the world’s population is aging, and Taiwan is no exception to the need for medical care, long-term care, and health care services.It has been suggested by Stan Shih, Co-Founder & Honorary Chairman of Acer Inc., that Taiwan should adopt “drive export sales with domestic demand” as a development strategy for its healthcare and healthcare technology industries.
  • In terms of the aging population, Vietnam ranks among the top countries in the world. The population of Vietnam has reached 97.34 million in 2020. As a result of the aging population, the elderly population has reached 7% since 2011. It is estimated that the time taken to move from 7% to 14% is only 16 to 18 years. Approximately 21 million people are expected to be elderly by 2035 and 2038, officially entering the super-aged population.

An overview of the Vietnamese market

90% of the market relies on imports, and the market for medical materials is expected to reach 30 billion US dollars; the Vietnamese government is actively introducing smart medical devices.

  • From 2017 to 2019, imported medical materials products had an average annual value of 5.824 billion US dollars. The market for medical materials in Vietnam is expected to reach US $30 billion by 2026 as a result of an aging population and an increase in income-driven demand for healthcare services.
  • Currently, 90% of Vietnam’s medical materials are imported, due to the small scale of local production of medical materials. Recently, the Vietnamese government released more investment profits and invited overseas manufacturers to invest in Vietnam, hoping to increase the domestic market for medical materials to 60%.
  • As the Vietnamese elderly population grows in both absolute and relative numbers, large amounts are required to cover health care services, retirement and social benefits.
  • As a result of Covid-19, digital health care has been promoted more aggressively. The Vietnamese government intends to implement a smart medical system in response to the aging population and high medical costs in the country.
  • In Vietnam, the market of nursing homes is still in its infancy. According to statistics from 2021, Vietnam has 102 comprehensive elderly care facilities and only 32 specialized nursing facilities. By 2025, the government intends to establish at least one institution in each province.
  • There is a high demand for long-term care facilities and care centers in Vietnam due to the rapid growth of the elderly population, which requires substantial amounts of money to cover health care services, retirement benefits, and social benefits. Additionally, Vietnam is working to improve mechanisms and policies to encourage private enterprises to enter the elderly market.

An introduction to the exhibition

The Cares Expo Vietnam is Vietnam’s first professional exhibition on healthcare, elderly care, and long-term care.

The Cares Expo Vietnam will be held concurrently with the Vietnam Medi-Pharm Expo. In its 30 years of existence, Medi-Pharm Expo has become one of the most prestigious and largest medical exhibitions in Vietnam. The exhibition is sponsored by the Ministry of Health of Vietnam and is considered to be the largest and most influential exhibition in the field of medicine and health. We are optimistic about the rapid development of the elderly care market in Vietnam, but there is still a lack of professional exchange platforms. The Vietnamese Ministry of Health, Vietfair, and AnkeCare plan to jointly organize the Cares Expo Vietnam, an expo specializing in elderly care. Focusing on health care, elderly care, long-term care, technology and services in accordance with Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy, mastering the important medical and long-term care channels in Vietnam, and expanding ASEAN health care services.
