The rules of your market have changed. How will you adapt?

With patent lengths decreasing, new pricing regulations emerging and global supply chains still recovering from the disruption caused by COVID-19, it’s never been harder to maximise the value and profitability of blockbuster drugs.

Today’s Life Sciences leaders are facing a vast array of challenges. To overcome them, they must:

  • Bring new blockbuster drugs to market quickly and effectively to extend the total value generated by a drug before it reaches its patent cliff
  • Navigate crowded global supply markets for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients and accurately assess which suppliers can meet their needs
  • Keep materials costs low to mitigate the impact of decreasing R&D returns and shift towards a strategy of cost control for profit maximisation
  • Identify innovation opportunities quickly and move fast to make the most of emerging drug, supply chain and promotion opportunities
  • Stay ahead of numerous regulatory changes and pressures impacting everything from drug lifecycle length to how drugs are priced

Here's how we can help

Supplier Risk Intelligence

For businesses with a large supplier base and complex supply chains, managing third-party supplier risk is a major challenge. 61% of CPOs feel procurement risks are increasing, 59% say they are unprepared to address them (Deloitte Global CPO Survey 2019 and The Hackett Group Survey 2019).
