Summary

The pharmaceutical industry is in the midst of fundamental changes, brought on by the increasing concerns over the expiry of patents, weak product pipelines, and competition from generics. However, increasing prosperity in emerging markets is creating new avenues for pharmaceutical companies to increase their top-line growth. Thus, to meet the challenges and exploit the opportunities, pharmaceutical companies are increasingly looking towards advanced technologies to stay ahead of the intense competition in the field.

Key Findings

  • To offset declining sales from the patent cliff, companies are expanding into emerging markets in order to increase their market share, which is in turn leading to increasing investments in their core ICT categories of hardware, software, and IT services.
  • Kable expects mobility and cloud computing to gain momentum in the next two years, and companies are set to increase spending on these advance technologies in order to enhance their competitiveness.
  • Meanwhile, pharmaceutical companies are prioritizing their ICT investments relating to clinical and pre-clinical research to drive future RandD requirements.
