Biotechnology can make a positive difference in everyone’s lives. From cancer to the common cold, biotech companies have become instrumental in helping understand the ailments that have mystified the medical community for decades. Biotech companies work hard to study diseases and, more importantly, find treatments and cures for them.
The biotechnology sector of the market started getting headlines as companies scrambled to find a solution to the COVID-19 pandemic.
My research shows a growing trend in the sector that can earn investors sizable profits in the years to come. Plus, chief investment strategist Adam O’Dell considers biotech the next big wave in the stock market.
In this episode of The Bull & The Bear, I tell you about the biotech sector and explain the best way to invest in this growing trend moving forward.
Biotech Sector Grows at a Hypersonic Pace
The biotech sector started, like many others, very small. Biopharmaceuticals was dominated by only a few players in the game. Its $149 billion in revenue for 2012 accounted for only 19% of the global pharmaceutical revenue that year, but its growth has been on a rapid upward trajectory ever since.
By 2026, as the sub-sector continues to expand, pharma revenue from biotechnology is expected to grow to $505 billion — more than 35% of all pharmaceutical revenue.
That puts the biotech sector growth at 239% from 2012 to 2026.
This is massive growth for the biotech industry. Listen to The Bull & The Bear to find out how to play it.
