The GCC pharmaceutical and medical device sectors are enjoying strong growth which means there are plenty of job opportunities available for fresh graduates.
The pharma market alone has grown from just over $3 billion in 2015 to $5.7 billion in 2020 – almost doubling it’s worth in just five years. And the medical device sector in the UAE is estimated to be worth AED 3.7 billion and is growing year on year.
Rudy Bier, Managing Partner at Kinetic, shared his thoughts on what graduates can expect when starting out in the industry this week with The National;“The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the sector in different ways: some of the sub-sectors, such as medical devices for elective surgeries, have been negatively affected as all of these were put on hold. However, in-vitro diagnostic, lab and ICU areas of the business have seen a positive growth due to the pandemic and its increased demands.”
