The factors in favour of a rise in the Biomérieux share price:
First of all, the Biomerieux group is very well positioned in its business sector and ranks seventh worldwide in the field of in vitro diagnostics and is also the international leader in clinical and industrial microbiology. It is also very well positioned in the fields of infectious diseases, cardiovascular emergencies and oncology.
The Biomerieux group is also a reassuring company for investors as it benefits from the significant global growth of its main market.
We also appreciate the ability of the Biomerieux group to protect itself against the risks associated with a single activity by organizing its activities into two different divisions.
Biomerieux is also a company with strong geographic expansion potential. It has international coverage thanks to its 42 subsidiaries. More than 45% of the group's sales are in Europe, but it also covers the North American market with 25% of sales, the Asia-Pacific market with 21% of sales, Eastern Europe with 5% of sales, including the Middle East and Africa, and finally 4% of sales in Latin America. Thanks to this distribution, it is therefore protected against geographical risks.
Biomerieux can also rely on its high level of expertise in the field of infectious disease diagnostics and its substantial investments in research and development, which represent more than 12% of sales. This enables it to position itself among the market leaders.
Shareholders and investors also appreciate the Group's solid business model, which is based on a niche strategy with regular revenues and a wide variety of products. This strategy is also working with the rise of molecular biology, which it has been taking advantage of since its acquisition of the American company Biofire.
Biomerieux is also attracting significant and rapid market share gains in emerging countries thanks to its ability to adapt its offer with specific equipment.
