H2Ocean Adding Jobs in Martin County, as Sea Salt Line Launches|
|A View from the Microscope - A Jones Lang LaSalle team explains how four locations are maintaining and honing their edge as magnets for life sciences investment.|
|Monday, June 11, 2012|
|In laboratories around the world, researchers are racing to find cures that will drive business. But meanwhile, their own world — the business of life sciences — is profoundly changing. Driven by the implications of patent loss, rising research and development costs and declining return on investment, downward pricing pressure and other factors, the industry is regrouping to increase productivity and business performance.
Life sciences cluster locations are experiencing the effects of these global trends in their own local ways. In Jones Lang LaSalle's Global Life Sciences Cluster Report we explored clusters around the world, highlighting established life sciences regions, identifying emerging clusters and providing insights into the dynamics behind each. The list on p. 50 shows the top established and emerging clusters worldwide; more information on each can be found in the full report.
Site Selection wondered if we could dig deeper to deliver some on-the-ground observations. So here we present our insider's view from four of these prominent life sciences clusters, chosen for their varying histories and current responses to industry pressures: the Boston area, Central and South Florida, Singapore and Bavaria, Germany. Boston and Bavaria are both long-established centers of excellence. Singapore, on the other hand, represents an emerging cluster that has through concerted and innovative effort relatively recently come into its own. And Florida is a state to watch, with a focused effort to develop the life sciences industry.
The divergent ways that these markets are evolving indicate that future industry success will not be defined by a single strategy. Instead, business strategists will need to approach each location differently, accounting for each region's unique blend of human resources, academic infrastructure, business community dynamics and ability to invest, and finally, each community's aspirations for their life sciences sector.
