• VC funding has slowed as a result of overall economic factors, limiting the ability for smaller life sciences startups from expanding space in the key hubs of Boston, the Bay Area, San Diego and the Research Triangle. • An influx of new construction deliveries will increase inventory, which has already grown by 18% since 2020. The current construction pipeline is twice as large as it was when the pandemic began (38 msf vs. 16 msf). • Continuous breakthroughs in biotechnology, including gene editing technologies like CRISPR and advancements in drug discovery, will continue demand in the life sciences sector as researchers and pharmaceutical companies seek to develop innovative therapies and treatments. • Evolving healthcare regulations and policies, particularly those aimed at expediting drug approvals and ensuring patient safety, will drive demand by shaping the development, testing and commercialization processes.
