What are the various medical equipment business segments that Siemens Healthineers operates in India and what is the market share?

We operate in three segments— imaging, advanced therapies and diagnostics, and are market leaders in each of them. In diagnostic imaging, our portfolio spans across computed tomography, magnetic resonance, molecular imaging, X-ray products, ultrasound, and imaging IT. In advanced therapies our portfolio consists of angiography systems, mobile C-arms, hybrid operating rooms, and imaging for radiation oncology. In the diagnostics, we offer solutions for clinical chemistry, immunoassay, hemostasis, hematology, blood gas, urinalysis, molecular virology, liquid biopsy, automation, and IT.

What opportunities do you see in the coming years and how are you going to capitalize them?

We see a large opportunity for digitalization of healthcare. We also believe that healthcare will become more precise, enabling the right treatment at the right time for every patient. Improving patient experience will be important. We believe patients are becoming informed consumers. Once accurately diagnosed, what matters to patients is preferred treatment outcomes that will ultimately lead to a higher quality of life.
