We are delighted to launch our second sector report, focusing on four key themes within the Healthcare sector.
The Healthcare sector has continued to grow strongly in recent years, with the Covid-19 pandemic reinforcing the importance of healthcare around the globe. Despite the pandemic’s lasting impact on us all, it has presented the Healthcare sector with the chance to accelerate innovation and reinvent itself to meet a new set of challenges. With that brings a wealth of new opportunities for leaders to drive growth and to create impactful change within the sector.
As a result, the private equity industry invested c.$151 billion into healthcare globally in 2021, more than double the prior year.
We believe there are four themes that are paving the way for the future success of the sector with regards to investment, including Pharma Services, Medical Devices & Diagnostics, MedTech and Health & Wellbeing. In this report we dive deeper to understand the key drivers and challenges of each theme, discuss the role the sector has to play in driving sustainable change and highlight the experience from our own portfolio – including case studies from Helios, Meet, Direct Healthcare Group, ramarketing and Platinum Stairlifts.
At NorthEdge we back management teams, in the Healthcare, Technology, Business Services and Specialised Industrials sectors, who recognise the value of having an experienced business partner alongside them. The next twelve months will provide a new set of exciting opportunities for the Healthcare sector, and we’re proud of the role we can play – continuing working closely alongside ambitious management teams to build better businesses together.
