Development of the Health Industry in Regensburg (06/2021)

(No. 248) With the project "Healthcare Regensburg - managed by BioPark", a new initiative of the City of Regensburg was kicked off with the support of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs in the field of health management. A current study by the cluster shows that in 2019, 831 businesses in the Regensburg area generated sales of € 2.7 billion, thus documenting the growing importance of this industry for the future of the cathedral city and the Upper Palatinate region.

With increasing life expectancy, the increase in the average age in the population and progress in medical engineering, health care is becoming more and more important. The industry’s turnover in Germany was € 86.5 billion with an average growth rate of 5.37% per year. The largest share of sales is generated in inpatient and outpatient care for the elderly (42%), followed by hospitals (39%), natural medicine (11%), pharmacies (3%), resident medical (3%) and dental fields (2%). On behalf of the BioPark, the management and technology consultancy Detecon International GmbH carried out a study of the number of employees and sales in the City and District of Regensburg in the pharmaceutical and health sector. For this purpose, so-called WZ codes (classification and systematics of economic sectors) from the health sector were evaluated.

In 2020, a total of 21,600 employees with social security were working in the health sector in the Regensburg region. That is a good 33.8% more than in the 2011 census (see figure 1). At 55%, the largest proportion is employed in hospitals. 80% of the employees work in the urban area and 20% in the rural district.
