Agfa to increase prices of medical products worldwide

By staff writers

January 21, 2022 -- Agfa HealthCare plans to increase prices for its medical products worldwide by up to 10% to offset cost increases it experienced in 2021 for raw materials, energy, packaging material, and transport.

Cost increases for some radiology products may reach double digits, the company said.

"The impact has been so severe that, despite internal cost reductions, a price increase is inevitable," company officials said in a news release.

As of January 22, prices for all types of medical films and equipment will increase from 5% to 10%, with increases for other unspecified radiology products increasing by double-digit percentages, the company said. Details will be communicated through Agfa's commercial channels.
