While the report looks at the entire pipeline to 2015, a key focus of the report is the increasing role of biopharmaceutical products. The growing interest in biotechnology development has transitioned the pharmaceutical industry to biopharmaceuticals in less than a decade. Companies such as Pfizer, Merck and Novartis have been unable to ignore the benefits of investing in biotechnology and have focused on a pipeline in this direction through strategic acquisitions and partnerships with biotech companies and/or through their own in-house research efforts.
This Kalorama Information market research report captures these trends, extracting sales for all pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products (excluding prophylactic vaccines and OTC products) and providing estimates and forecasts of the world biopharma market.
As part of its coverage, the report provides the following:
For the purpose of this study, Kalorama Information has extracted sales for human pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical products; consumer pharmaceuticals and products; diagnostics; devices; chemicals; agriculture; and animal health. These are areas where many of these companies also compete with significant market shares.
The industry has struggled in recent years but many observers see biopharmaceutical as the key to continued success for market leaders. Biopharmaceuticals are defined as any substance produced by natural organisms or recombinant techniques consisting of proteins and other products derived from living organisms for the treatment or management of diseases or injuries. Biopharmaceuticals are created through fermentation, recombinant DNA technology, and other bioprocesses. The complex nature of biopharmaceuticals and the growing interest in development of these products has resulted in a flood of new issues affecting the already complicated healthcare market. There are a number of issues and trends which are experienced by the healthcare industry as a whole and others which are unique to biopharmaceuticals, their development and commercialization.
Issues and Trends discussed in this report include:
