Texas is an energy state. But, energy isn’t alone in driving Texas forward. We also have a burgeoning life sciences industry that – with the right policies and strategic investments – is poised to be a driving force in the Texas economy for decades to come.
The life sciences industry is good for the Texas economy. We contribute more than $3 billion in state and federal taxes annually. Our economic output is $61.5 billion and the average salary in our industry is $110,000. The pharmaceutical sector alone indirectly supports more than 228,000 Texas jobs. There are also many indirect economic benefits.
