For the world’s drug makers 2016 was a year of two halves. Dealmaking and venture funding held up over the first two quarters, buoyed by the retreating bull market. However, as the US presidential election loomed ever closer, companies went into lockdown. Meanwhile, the medtech sector demonstrated that greater efforts are needed to foster innovation if it is to thrive. These findings and more were released today as part of the Pharma & Biotech 2016 in Review and Medtech 2016 in Review reports by EP Vantage, the editorial arm of life science market intelligence firm Evaluate.
“In terms of pharma & biotech share prices, the volatility of 2016 and the unpredictability President Trump has so far displayed will do little to calm industry nerves. Investors and companies might want to brace themselves for these stormy waters to become the new normal this year. Alongside the political landscape, high drug prices will remain the sector’s gremlin in 2017,” said Amy Brown, Pharma & Biotech report author.
“In the medtech sphere the venture funding climate is getting deeper into an endless winter,” said report author Elizabeth Cairns. “While there are some rich rounds, even in the early stages, most companies are struggling to find growth capital.”
Other key findings include:
