The Gold Coast’s biomedical industry has experienced remarkable growth since its inception just two decades ago. The city has evolved into a vibrant location for biomedical innovation, startups, emerging industries, forward-thinking SMEs, and a top-ten global pharmaceutical company. This rapid growth trajectory has set the Gold Coast on a path to become a leader in Australia, and globally, in specialist fields of biomedicine.
Our new Gold Coast Emerging Biomedical Industry Study 2023 provides a 10-year growth strategy for the industry. The long-term vision is to create a vibrant and thriving ecosystem that promotes a world-class research and innovation system, a pipeline of innovative, high-quality biopharmaceuticals and medical technology products, a globally recognised medical products industry, access to national and international markets, and the translation of research and development into commercial outcomes.
As part of the project, a Gold Coast Biomedical Industry Capability Guide has also been developed to help promote the sector nationally and internationally.

Around 30 of the Gold Coast's top biomed and medtech minds came together to provide on the ground intelligence and help us shape the 10-year strategy.
