La industria de la salud ha demostrado una y otra vez gran resistencia a las turbulencias económicas. En adelante, el crecimiento estará impulsado por varias tendencias inmutables a largo plazo: Población mundial envejecida, mayor incidencia de enfermedades crónicas, creciente demanda de servicios de calidad y la necesidad constante de prestar esos servicios de manera más eficiente.

En Emmergia-CDI Spain creemos que el sector salud continuará siendo un motor clave en el impulso de la actividad de M&A y, por ello, es prioritario para nosotros.
