Executive Summary

Trends

Affecting Investments in the Medical Device Sector Many healthcare trends could significantly affect the European medical device sector. The increasing elderly population, growing power of the middle class, changing decision makers, and increasing healthcare consumerism are expected to change the way healthcare is delivered in the near future.

•While private equity (PE) deals did not show much variation in terms of volume between 2010 and 2013, deal value showed a tremendous increase in the same period.
•The decrease in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) volume was marginal; however, the decreases in M&A value was quite significant between 2010 and 2013.
•In terms of integration type, medical device companies are the top buyers.
•Initial public offerings (IPO) in the industry show a promising exit route for participants in the European medical device sector.
