Market Overview

Renewed Optimism at Home and Projected Growth Internationally

Researchers working in the life sciences market on drug discovery and development face a number of challenges including time-to-market, cost controlling, regulatory changes and product safety. Generic competition and comparative effectiveness are also big concerns. As a result, researchers need information on cutting-edge technologies, emerging trends and case studies to effectively do their job and develop drugs that will eventually come to market.

Pharmaceutical funding in the U.S. has experienced significant drops in the past two years, but is anticipated to level off in 2014. Internationally, specifically in India and China, a grow- ing middle class is demanding better healthcare resulting in increased funding and projected market growth.

U.S. pharmaceutical R&D is anticipated to remain at $36 billion in 2014, while globally, it is anticipated to grow 6.9% and reach $108 billion. Regardless of the decreased domestic funding over the past couple of years, the pharmaceutical market is still extremely large and robust.
