Biometrics talent pools experienced underinvestment from the late 2000s to the mid-2010s as both sponsors and CROs began to outsource their Biometrics operations, often overseas. 

Fast-forward to today and the trend has changed again, with an influx of increased funding in the Biologics Research & Development space. The end result is an increasingly competitive sector, further exacerbated by continuing acceleration of technological innovation and the reshoring of many roles.

The Biometrics industry has witnessed year on year increases in investment, M&A activity, and in the growth of the Clinical trial index, with multiple studies being run in parallel at any one time.

The acute demand for Biometrics professionals in Europe means the strain on the talent pool is at an all time high.
