The Life Sciences and Healthcare industry is undergoing revolutionary change across the developed and developing world. Digital technology, the increasing incidence of chronic disease and the growing demands of ageing populations are driving higher levels of investment and innovation than ever before.

Malta’s profile in this industry has traditionally been based on a well-established pharmaceutical manufacturing sector, with several international firms attracted to the island by the skilled human resources, reputable regulation and access to the European Union. This focus is now widening to include exciting new sectors.

These include medical device manufacturing, specialised software development and an emerging niche in health tourism. This growth is driven by Malta’s highly skilled resources and effective connectivity with foreign markets. Further momentum is being generated by the opening of a Life Sciences Park, containing high-end chemistry, biology and digital imaging facilities complemented by a range of industry-specific support measures, making Malta a leading option for investors in this industry.
