Drivers for Healthcare R&D Investment in Asia-Pacific

Investment in Research and Development (R&D) is the key to sustaining innovation and promoting growth in the healthcare industry. This report broadly tracks the events and crucial reasons that have transformed the APAC region into a preferred R&D investment destination. We highlight four countries—China, Singapore, South Korea, and Taiwan—which showed the highest increase in R&D investment between 2009 and 2012. Driven by healthcare market growth in the region, these countries have emerged as hotspots for R&D investment as a result of improved Intellectual Property (IP) regimes, governments’ promotions and incentives, and increased research capabilities.
