M&A Surges, Companion Diagnostics Accelerate, and Early Detection Offers New Prospects, Finds PwC's Biennial Review of the In Vitro Diagnostics Industry
Date:12/6/2011

arket share in key segments.  Deals might be challenging because of increasing competition for the most compelling new technologies.
  • Private equity houses search for opportunities: An increase in bigger private-equity-backed deals are likely to crystallize — provided capital markets do not slump.
  • Major pharmaceutical companies buy molecular or tissue diagnostics businesses: Though this kind of deal activity has been slow in recent years, some major pharmaceutical companies will be increasingly motivated by the confirmation of the drug-diagnostic co-development model.  Those not part of a company with a significant IVD division have started building business development teams with diagnostics expertise to support better licensing decisions, and some of these companies will consider buying a diagnostics business to deepen their expertise, increase technology options, and provide direct commercial access.
  • A significant player moving into early detection: Several companies are driving the development of a wave of new tests for early detection of major cancers.  Only time will tell whether the market adopts the concept of using non-invasive in vitro diagnostics for early detection.  If it does, a major diagnostics or pharmaceutical company could move to acquire one or several of the promising new ventures in this field.
  • "With science and technology advancing so rapidly, and with in vitro diagnostics offering much promise, pharmaceutical companies can't ignore the role of diagnostics in their future strategies.  The key question is whether it is better to build, buy or partner," said Gerry McDougall, principal, healthcare advisory services, PwC US.  "The surge in deal activity and the diversity of buyers highlights a widespread belief in the growth prospects of selected IVD market segments as well as the potential for cross-industry synergies."
