"In response to the uncertainty and disruption facing the biopharmaceutical industry, Merck has moved beyond old risk-management models and has adopted and is applying new strategies at the earliest stages of development and seeing them through to commercialization," said Udit Batra, Member of the Merck Executive Board and CEO, Life Science.
Study highlights include:
Manufacturers in the biopharma industry face unprecedented challenges as they enter unfamiliar geographies, aggressively replenish pipelines and expand into novel areas such as gene and cell therapies requiring more complex development and production. The EIU study, detailed in The Changing Biopharma Risk Equation, examines how new growth strategies are creating exposure to different types of risk and explores options for successfully navigating this unexplored territory.
Survey respondents offered a global view with 31 percent from Europe, 30 percent from North America, 29 percent from Asia and 10 percent from the rest of the world. Responses also reflect the differences in view depending on company size, with 50 percent of participants coming from biopharmas with less than $500 million in revenues and 50 percent from larger players.
