Zebra Technologies Corporation, a provider of business efficiency solutions, has pointed to the growing opportunities for new firms in the Middle East's expanding healthcare sector.
Presenting recently at the Arab Health Congress 2011, the company, which is used by more than 90 per cent of Fortune 500 companies, showcased a number of administrative products for the sector including mobile radio frequency identification (RFID) printers and direct-thermal labels for X-Ray identification.
"As the Middle East healthcare market continues to grow, there is a parallel demand from governments and healthcare facilities for more efficient and accurate administration of medical records," commented Wael Hasan, territory manager-Middle East at Zebra Technologies.
"From patient histories to pharmacy labels, the call for high-tech media solutions has never been clearer."
Earlier this month, meanwhile, it was reported that the healthcare sector in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region is forecast to triple in worth over the next decade from $18 billion currently to $55 billion by 2020, according to a report by Kuwait Finance House Research.
