2015 Medical Device M&A Year End Review

Some stats on medical device and diagnostics investment/M&A patterns from 2015: Ups and downs

(from MedCity News)

In general, venture capital went up quite a bit in 2015 reaching $59 billion, more than doubling in the last five years – but according to the latest Silicon Valley Bank report, only $2.4 billion went into medical devices.

Based on the report, interest in investment in the medical device and diagnostics sector does seem to be going up, though. Companies with just a CE mark or even no regulatory approval at all are still getting acquired more than what’s considered average – which should provide hope for those in early stage.
