Biotech researchers across the world are experiencing a renaissance in their industry. Like the massive growth experienced by technology companies of the 90’s, the biotech industry is prepped and ready to realize the same growth. Technology has provided new ways to research treatments, therapies and distribute new drugs. Many small biotech companies have taken advantage of this new technology and are the source of these new drugs. With many patents expiring in 2012, the large corporations are beginning to acquire these smaller companies in an effort to attain new patents.
With new discoveries every day the biotech industry the shelf life of a new drug is becoming shorter. According to information gathered by Bloomberg, 676 biotech takeovers occurred in rising numbers over the last 3 years. Expect this trend to continue over the next 3 years, as more patents will expire and new drugs will be discovered at an increasingly higher rate.
Researchers have just started to scratch the surface in this young and exciting field. 2012 revealed many advances in the Anti-obesity, Myelofibrosis, cancer, HCV, RA, MS, psoriasis, HCC, and dyslipidemia fields. 2013 promises to discover new treatments for viruses, targeted cancer treatments, Alzheimer's, antivirals and orphan diseases. In addition, many oral therapies are being researched in the areas of RA, Psoriasis, and MS. Stem cell research will also be represented well in 2013.
Investors continue to be unafraid of the lengthy and difficult process to achieve FDA approval. In fact, many have plans to increase the M&A budgets. Many small biotech companies are also seeing the oncoming wave of advancements in this field and have decided to take on the challenge of doing their own marketing. The rewards well outweigh the risks for these small biotech companies.
The biotech industry has many up and coming companies that are worth taking a closer look.
