10.2 Medical Simulation Market in EMEA Region
North America is the major market for healthcare/medical simulation, accounting for around 50% of the global market, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. However, Asia-Pacific and Latin America will possess lucrative growth potential for the healthcare/medical simulation market by 2019. This is mainly attributed to the extensive customer base in these regions due to large base of aging population and rising prevalence of various disorders. Most of the healthcare/medical simulation products and services in these regions will be driven by developing countries such as India, China, South Korea, Singapore, Brazil, and Mexico.
