The number of partnering, collaborative R&D and licensing deals announced varied year on year with a decline recently from the peak of 41 deals announced in 2008. This was probably due to the effects of the 2008 economic crisis making companies more selective in their deal making as budgets were squeezed.

The following figure shows the level of Bayer partnering deal announcements since 2005.
