About the pharma & biotech industry
Despite political, technological and social changes which have occurred in the last decade, the biopharmaceutical field is still one of the most important when it comes to maintaining public health, quality of life and even a regular lifestyle, both in developing and developed countries.
The pharmaceutical and biotech sectors include companies engaged in the development and manufacture of drugs and medicinal products, which are used to prevent disease, detect, cure and relieve symptoms in humans and animals. The “main suppliers” of the pharmaceutical industry are companies that develop investigational drug substances and/or drug products. These products must pass different clinical stages, and may be registered and sold only after their safety and efficacy has been proven.
The many changes in recent years include mergers between “big pharma” companies, price pressure, relocation of production facilities to developing countries, and the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Nevertheless, the biopharmaceutical industry is considered very profitable and stable, and shows impressive growth rates.
The biopharmaceutical industry manufactures products for humans (most patients), and there are many risks involved. Thus, this industry is characterized by complex regulation and, as a result, complicated access barriers.
Several factors influence the success of the pharmaceutical industry, such as competition, political involvement, socio-cultural changes, technological advances, and regulation.
Israel is considered one of the world leaders in drug development and medical technologies, and in recent years we have witnessed the expansion of the field of medicine in many areas such as cellular therapy, genomic therapy, biological drugs, and preventive medicine, to name a few.
