"The pharmaceutical and biotechnology segments have become more mature, with a shift from VC investments to more strategic investments," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Dr. E. Saneesh.  "This is shown by the decrease in the number of VC deals in these segments; however, the healthcare equipment segment has displayed increases in the number of investments. The consolidating VC industry has also contributed to the reduction in the number of VC deals globally."
