Ageing populations in both developed and emerging nations are driving up demand for healthcare. This hugely significant shift in demographics is just one catalyst for change as technological advances in life sciences open up previously utopian possibilities.

From personalised medicine to preventative healthcare, and virtual diagnostics to streamlined drug discovery, convergent and emergent technologies are catalysing progress in every field from fertility to longevity.

As technologies disrupting most industries – the Internet of Things, Big Data, artificial intelligence and machine learning – combine with developments in genomics, implantables and wearable monitors, gene editing and bioengineering, the effects can be truly transformative. Market dynamics are changing at pace too as healthcare and pharmaceutical companies join with digital and medtech partners.

While keeping abreast of research and development, companies must navigate the complexities and risks of government regulation, patent law, licensing agreements, joint venture and partnerships, and supply chain disruptions.

Amid this intense innovation and competition for breakthrough advances, and service pressures post-pandemic, the healthcare and life sciences sector is inevitably also fertile ground for conflict and disputes.
