The value of the global Biotechnology market is mind-boggling. In 2019 it was valued at $449 billion and projected to grow by 8.3% annually through to 2025 reaching a $729 billion valuation! With the whole world now in the grip of the Covid-19 pandemic and the continued growth in chronic ailments like cancer and diabetes, these figures look to be markedly higher than previous predictions suggest.

In the UK, the biopharmaceutical industry represents a highly important and resilient sector for growth, with a year-on-year increase in the number of pharmaceutical enterprises, who now employ approximately 63,000 people and generate a market value of some £21 billion. The top half a dozen pharmaceutical companies by market share operating in the UK in 2018 were: Pfizer, Novartis, GlaxoSmithKline, Marck & Co., Bayer, and Roche.

In a thriving and expanding market, new investment inevitably leads to a healthy supply of second-user equipment and machinery coming onto the market.

The auctions we cover on our website and in our weekly digital magazine, give you access to quality used and sometimes even new Pharma, Biotech, and Laboratory Equipment at auctions where machinery and tooling are often available at a fraction of the cost of buying through the usual supplier channels.
