In a bid to promote the country's domestic medical devices industry, the government of India is considering an incentive package that would provide capital subsidy of up to 25% to the medical device manufacturers. Such benefits, which are currently offered to the electronics industry in the country, have helped boost local production of mobile phones, in the recent years.

Initially, the subsidy would be limited to only the manufacturing of diagnostic devices, but later it would be extended to all medical devices including pacemakers, implants, ventilators, dialysis machines, among others. The plan is aimed at making India a manufacturing hub for medical devices of international standards that caters to the domestic and overseas markets. India's medical devices market is the fourth largest in Asia -- after Japan, China and South Korea.
