No. of Pages: 77

GBI Research’s latest report, ""Pharmaceutical Deal Trends (2010–2015) and In-Depth Analysis of Recent Deal Activity"" discusses deal-making trends for a range of deal types, such as Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and strategic alliances. It also examines preference by deal type, along with disclosed deal values from 2010 to July 2015, covering start-ups, mid-level players, and big players.

Pharmaceutical companies use deal activity to enhance their research activities, regulatory approach, geographic presence, commercialization, and sales. The increasing development of biologics, especially in oncology, has given a significant boost to activity in recent years. Analysis suggests that while the number of deals in 2015 (until July) was lower than the number of deals in 2014, deal value in 2015 has already exceeded that of 2014. Looking at the entire period, although strategic deals were more numerous, M&A deals had the highest deal value. Partnerships were the most preferred type of deal activity, but saw the lowest deal value. North America led in terms of region, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Key deals covered in this report include the acquisition of Allergen by Actavis, asset transactions between Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, and the partnership between Pfizer and Merck.
