What are the market dynamics in the medical devices sector?

The AI industry is growing at an unprecedented rate and the COVID-19 pandemic has only accelerated this trend. Implementing AI into the traditionally conservative medical technology field has the potential to improve the current methods of diagnosing, managing, and treating numerous diseases and health issues. The technology can be used in a myriad of applications, from enhanced imaging, diagnostic assistance, robotic surgery, to the implementation of patient flow optimization. Large companies have been heavily investing in and implementing the technology. In 2021 there was significant M&A investment in the diagnostic imaging sector. This trend is expected to continue in the future.

Genomics is a growing market that generates substantial revenue and public interest. Players in genomics range from small private companies that specialize in specific value chains to large corporations that dominate multiple industries. The pace of M&A in the genomics sector has accelerated in 2021. GlobalData expects this trend to continue as companies redirect their focus towards personalized precision medicine and pharmacogenetic therapeutics, given the massive datasets they have of consumers’ health. There is now a precedent set for other companies to invest more heavily in this aspect of the market, thus attracting larger and more frequent M&A deals.
