The Case for Pharmaceutical Manufacturing

The drug industry is at a critical point: yesterday’s blockbusters have already come off patent, or soon will. The pipeline of new blockbuster drugs has slowed to a trickle. At the same time, healthcare reform in the U.S., global price controls and growth in international markets promise a future of increased production at lower prices. Drug companies can only meet these challenges, and stay in business, by improving manufacturing efficiencies, either in-house or with their CMO contract partners. If you offer products or services that can improve drug quality and manufacturing efficiency, or streamline drug development, scaleup and manufacturing, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing has over 50,000 print and digital audience members who need to hear from you. These readers base their selection of equipment and technology on the urgent need for efficiency and compliance. In fact, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing’s 2010 Media Consumption study identified that 91.4% of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing’s print and digital audience either plays a key role in vendor/solution decision making and/or makes the final decision. Pharmaceutical Manufacturing can help you capitalize on upcoming opportunities in the new life sciences landscape.

The Opportunity

What does one new customer mean to your company? What is the value in having your messaging delivered to and readily available to 50,000 plus Pharmaceutical Manufacturing audience members…in print and online? How can we help you identify your sweet spot in the pharma market and maximize the opportunity?

  • In 2010 the global pharmaceutical market will exceed $825 billion dollars in sales.
  • Manufacturing costs represent approximately 25% of sales.
  • R&D currently averages approximately 15% of sales.

In short, pharmaceutical manufacturing, research and development is approximately a $330 billion opportunity. Do you have products and solutions that would remove a fraction of these costs while allowing the industry to achieve stringent quality and compliance mandates?

Another perspective on the pharmaceutical industry opportunity:

“The pharmaceutical industry is waking up to the fact that operational excellence is important. After decades in a world where patents protected revenues and regulatory concerns constrained operational change, companies now understand that they will need to be faster, more productive and more flexible to compete in tomorrow’s industry. In response, most are embarking on operational improvements of one sort or another.” “Pharmaceutical companies risk being too cautious in their quest for productivity improvements. New research shows that the widespread adoption of the best practices in operations will deliver cost reductions of 50% for typical pharma firms.”

–McKinsey & Company, Philipp Cremer, Martin Lösch, Ulf Schrader “Outpacing Changein Pharma Operations” report
