Pharmaceutical Deal Trends 2017 Factbook: Partnerships and Acquisitions Shift Focus Towards Early Stage Development, Emerging Markets, and Biologics

Summary
Pharmaceutical market is continuing to see global growth, whereas pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are facing challenges due to disruptive events in the healthcare market such as increasing costs of production and R&D, shifts in patent laws, and challenges in the economy. Companies are considering various strategies to overcome the current challenges, with deal making being foremost among these as a means of boosting revenues over a short period of time.

Agreements between companies for drug discovery, which allow them to share the risk of co-developing products, have become more common. Small companies that primarily carry out early-stage research, development and production activities are entering into agreements with key industry leaders to out-license the rights to their products, utilizing the strengths of the larger companies in terms of commercialization expertise, manufacturing, distribution and marketing capabilities and global presence.

Meanwhile, key players keen to secure novel and promising molecules are willing to co-operate with small players to in-license promising early-stage assets to expand their portfolios, reduce R&D risks and move ahead in the market. Also, therapies have historically been manufactured in a one-size-fits-all approach for chronic diseases, among other therapy areas. Recently, a more personalized approach is being chosen by pharmaceutical companies, which are increasing the development of targeted therapies even for rare diseases.

The report "Pharmaceutical Deal Trends 2017 Factbook: Partnerships and Acquisitions Shift Focus Towards Early Stage Development, Emerging Markets, and Biologics" analyzes the importance of deal making in the pharmaceutical and healthcare market.
