Market study medical technology 2020 – with data on equity and M&A transactions

The M&A consultancy Clairfield and Luther Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft prepared this informative study with the support of the German Medical Technology Association (BVMed) and the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). The study gives you an overview of the current development of medical technology in Germany, Europe, the USA and Asia: from a legal, technical and transaction-oriented perspective.

Due to our focus on equity solutions in the medical technology environment, the authors of the study asked us to contribute our assessments of industry trends and transaction markets.

The study contains statements and interviews with SHS partners Steinbacher, Zimmermann, Ulmer-Weber and Leonhardt. In addition, you will read an interview with the managing director of a medical technology medium-sized company that was recently added to our portfolio. A conversation with Prof. Dr. Koziol (Chair of Finance at the University of Tübingen), with whom we jointly developed the SHS Medical Technology Index, rounds off our article.

The authors of the study also provide recommendations for action for start-ups and medium-sized companies: The latter are recommended, for example, to review their business model in order to be prepared for progressive price erosion and increasing digitalization. They also point out that the development of new technologies and business models is often only realised by new investors or through mergers. And of course this market study also contains a lot of interesting transaction data.
