Abstract

This study examines whether Korea’s advanced and socially important healthcare industry has the potential to grow as a core industry of the nation in the 21st century, and to propose development directions to that end.
The healthcare industry produces, sells, and distributes goods and services to promote public health and to extend people’s lives. It is anticipated to command an important position in the nation from a social perspective, as it contributes to promotion of public health and improvement of welfare services, as well as from economic aspects because it can generate high added value. However, Korea’s healthcare industry has developed around domestic consumption, investment in healthcare and medical technology research and development projects overlap, and progress in production technology is slow. Moreover, analysis of value added inducement coefficients reveals that, excluding food, the industry as a whole has failed to create added value.
Therefore, in order to advance the healthcare industry, it is critical to expand R&D support to improve technological prowess, prioritize projects and concentrate resources on areas with wide-ranging effects, establish a system to support relationships between different institutes to assist commercialization, nurture venture companies, and to set up a division to be charged with the efficient management of support polices administered by different ministries.
