Significant decline of financing volumes for life sciences across all stages in Europe


During the first six months of 2022, we find that the funding for life sciences markets declined significantly compared to 2021. The trend affects all relevant life sciences subsectors of Biotech, HealthTech, and MedTech.

The financing volumes reduced by almost one-third from EUR 9.5bn to EUR 6.6bn. Biotech and MedTech experienced the most significant reductions in funding activity.

Except for Series B companies, this negative trend is consistent across all funding stages and ranges from -20 percent to -52 percent.

Interestingly, Series B HealthTech financing increased by 85 percent.
