Taiwan is undergoing a boom in biotechnology, rewarding years of dedicated effort from its stakeholders. More and more locally-developed drugs are entering late-stage clinical trials, and new companies, service providers and manufacturing facilities are emerging to fill rapidly growing industry needs. Overseas interest is picking up as well, with licensing, partnering and investment agreements at an all-time high. The total market capitalization of local publicly-listed biotech companies has soared, increasing 700 percent since 2008’s capital market crash, rewarding stakeholders for their patience and support.

The biotech industry in Taiwan has a set of unique characteristics and strengths that make it an appealing prospect to the global life science community looking for partnership, investment or licensing opportunities. These include:

  1. Vibrant VC industry and capital markets
  2. Strong business and cultural ties to the Greater China & Asia-Pacific market
  3. World-class clinical trial capability
  4. Transparent legal and business environment, with strong IP protection
  5. Well established private-public partnerships with deep innovation pipelines
  6. Highly-educated, motivated and cost-effective workforce
  7. Executives with overseas training, global view and Big Pharma experience
  8. Strong government support, subsidies and tax breaks
