The global pandemic has put scientific health research in the spotlight. The healthcare sector is one of the fastest changing industries. This industry of the future needs more space, both for research & development and for production and administration. Life science property is a growing niche with great significance for the business and science location. Accordingly, investor interest in life science properties is high, as they are often highly specialised and combine production, laboratory and office space in varying proportions. From an investment perspective, these properties increase diversification and strengthen the profitability of the property portfolio.
Life science is an interdisciplinary science that deals with the processes and structures of living organisms. The life science market is therefore highly differentiated: from biotechnology and medical technology to the pharmaceutical sector. Real estate can be divided into properties focussing on research and development, production space, pharmaceutical logistics and administration. The research-intensive sector has experienced strong national and international growth in recent years.
