Last week, industry publication BioSpace released an article entitled the “Top 5 Bay Area Biomed Hot Spots” based on the data in our new biomedical infographic. Fremont was featured along with Sunnyvale, San Jose, San Francisco, and Berkeley as “hot spots” for biomedical activity due to the clustering of companies in these locations and the trends they represent.Case in point, Fremont is seen as a sweet spot for biomedical manufacturing – an important distinction as the convergence of hardware and software becomes more critical to biomed growth.

Drug pricing might be dominating biomedical headlines these days, but there’s a lot more happening beneath the surface that’s driving innovation—specifically in California’s San Francisco Bay Area. In this region, a vibrant and robust biomedical industry is quickly growing.

Today, the Bay Area is home to more than 1,100 biomedical companies and 140,000 biomedical jobs, according to the Biomedical Manufacturing Network—and within the next two years, an estimated 14,000 more biomed jobs in the Bay Area are expected to surface.
