Trends Affecting Investment in the Medical Device Sector
Many healthcare trends could significantly affect the US medical device sector. The increasing elderly population, growing power of the middle class globally, and increasing healthcare consumerism are expected to change the way healthcare is delivered in the near future. Regulatory pressure due to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and accompanying reimbursement pressure are making companies cut costs and research and development (R&D) investments. More consolidation in the healthcare provider and payer industries is shifting bargaining power to buyers of medical devices.

Key Investment Findings
•The US medical device sector witnessed a decline in both the volume and value of venture capital (VC) investments in the study period (2010–2014).
•Private equity (PE) deals increased in both volume and value from 2010 to 2013 but have shown a significant decline in 2014.
•Merger and acquisition (M&A) volume and value decreased in the study period. Participants in the medical device sector are the primary buyers.
•M&As are preferred exit route for investors holding medical device assets since initial public offerings (IPOs) in the sector did not grow significantly over the study period.
Transactions
•M&As: An aspect of corporate strategy, corporate finance, and management by which corporations legally unify ownership of assets formerly subject to separate controls.
•Growth Capital/PE: Private placement transaction in which an investment is made in a mature or middle-market company with the purpose of aiding its growth.
•VC: Private placement transaction that involves an investment in an incubation or start-up-, early, mid-, late-, or emerging-stage company. Sectors

•Biotechnology: Companies primarily engaged in R&D, manufacturing, and/or marketing of products based on genetic analysis and genetic engineering. It includes companies specializing in protein-based therapeutics to treat human diseases.
•Healthcare Technology: Companies providing information technology services, including application, systems, and/or data processing software; Internet-based tools; and IT consulting services to doctors, hospitals, or businesses operating primarily in the healthcare sector.
