M&A trends in Life Sciences and Health Care
Growth at the global intersection of change
This report, based on a global survey of senior executives from the life sciences and health care industry, examines the multi-dimensional factors — demographic, political and economic — that are driving life sciences and health care companies forward into new markets and new opportunities, then analyzes how these companies are responding against this backdrop.
Anyone witnessing the feverish deal-making that has swept through the global life sciences and health care industry recently might well conclude that mergers-and-acquisitions (M&A) activity has become the dominant force shaping the industry. M&A is just one way forward though as companies respond to changes in this dynamic and innovative space. The new survey reveals that partnerships and informal collaborations also form an important part of the picture as companies continue to grapple with a rapidly shifting landscape.
