An overview of
Pharmaceutical
Industry
According to industry statistics, the pharmaceuticals market remains committed to recovery
despite the global economic slowdown, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5-8%
forecast for 2012-2015. This trend is supported by a consistent spending in R&D, about 18% of
revenue or $68 billion in 2011, and an ever stronger focus on supply chain management.
Pharmaceutical chemical spending approaches $100 billion and contract manufacturing
continues its double digit growth (CAGR 11%) exceeding $25 billion/year (Figure 1).

together with R&D productivity, cost cutting and M&A

industries with tighter margins and stealthier (Six-Sigma) performance
