“Respecto a la referencia mundial de la innovación que representa USA, cabe señalar que supone un mercado 7 veces más grande aproximadamente que el Europeo pero con una tendencia bastante similar en el 2Q 2014 con 13,3Bn $ (+41% vs. 1Q 2014) y con 915 operaciones (+14% vs. 1Q 2014) “comenta Diego Gutierrez de ABRA INVEST.
