Summary of the Swiss Biotech Report 2013

For 2012, net sales in the Swiss biotech industry remained stable despite the European debt crisis. Biotech activities of Swiss companies remained high as revealed by the number of products in the clinical pipeline.

  • Net sales amounted to a total of CHF 4,642 billion, about 1% less than the previous year.
  • Capital investments in Swiss biotech companies amounted to approximately CHF 260 million. Though significantly lower than 2011, the overall picture looks similar when debt financing is removed from the analysis.
  • The number of biotech firms increased slightly from the previous year to 250 developers and suppliers. The number of employees totals over 13,700.

"A well-functioning transfer of knowledge and technology combined with a high degree of innovation are key components of Switzerland's prosperity," Mr. Bangser said.  "Swiss biotech companies play an important role in this process.  Success is largely due to the excellent cooperation between universities, research networks, government institutions and the many small and large biotech companies. The Swiss Biotech Association will continue to support and promote this cooperation in the coming years with a broad range of measures."
