2022 Outlook: Health Care Investment Boom Is Likely to Continue This Year

In 2021, investors poured a record amount of capital into health care, and industry insiders say that the flood of cash is likely to continue flowing in 2022. Experts predict that investments in health tech, which drew the highest level of investment of any health care sector last year, will continue to grow — and carriers may want to make a splash in new areas of business.

According to a white paper prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), deals in the U.S. health care sector increased by 56%, for a total volume of $203 billion, through Nov. 15, 2021, compared to the same period in 2020. Meanwhile, a report by Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) found that venture capital funding of health care startups in the U.S. and Europe hit $80 billion, “beating 2020’s record by more than 30%.”
