Sector in brief

There are in fact several BioTech regions where companies from this sector with approx. 14,800 employees in total are concentrated. These include the BioTech region Munich/Martinsried with the Campus Martinsried-Großhadern as well as the BioTech regions Regensburg, Franconia and Straubing. To date, a total of more than 400 companies from the life science sector exist in Bavaria and the infrastructure offers space for even more players. Compared to the rest of Europe, Germany ranks third. This is due not least to the many nationally and internationally renowned research institutes based here in Bavaria.

companies from the life science sector exist in Bavaria

One focus of the Bavarian biotechnology scene with over 400 companies is the development of new therapeutics and diagnostics. To make it as easy as possible for new BioTech companies in Bavaria to enter the market, networks such as IGZ/BioMed Würzburg, BioPark Regensburg GmbHand BioM in Munich offer individual support, effective knowledge and technology transfer, advice on financing issues and integration into the well-developed network structures right from the start. More than 25 new biotechnology companies have joined the Bavarian network in the last two years alone. This positive development is very encouraging. In addition, the Biotechnology Cluster is successfully working on Bavaria’s uniform image as a biotechnology location, including at major trade fairs and international events. Overall, 40 percent of all Germany-wide orders were brought to Bavaria in 2018. In the same year, biotechnology companies benefited from venture capital of 240 million euros.
