With the global prescription drug market due to exceed $1.2 trillion by 2024, pricing pressures on healthcare systems are driving innovation and demanding differentiation across all therapeutic and technology areas. A huge rise in collaboration to maximise opportunity and bolster pipelines has driven M&A and BD&L activities over the past 5 years. Deal structures are evolving and Big Pharma is increasingly focused on balancing their level of risk with a need for new opportunities.
