2022 is an eventful year in terms of restructuring the global biomedical industry. Many major pharmaceutical companies are benefiting from the huge demand for pandemic prevention brought about by COVID-19, and have generated impressive revenues from vaccines, pharmaceuticals, and products related to testing equipment. This is why they continue to allocate funds to further R&D investments in 2022, or to reorganize their product lines through licensing, strategic alliances, and mergers and acquisitions.

According to statistics from PwC as of mid-November 2022, the number of deals in the pharmaceutical and life sciences sector in 2022 is 266, marking a 28% decrease compared to 2021, and the total deal value is $137 billion, registering a 49% reduction from the previous year.
