Whether due to the increasing global economy, the blurring of traditional industry lines, rapid advances in science & technology, regulatory harmonization, e-commerce, continued mergers, acquisitions and alliances, or the growing expectations of customers, the acute challenge to maintain competitive advantage is affecting life sciences companies of all sizes, in all lines of their businesses.
The future of the pharmaceutical industry depends on the ability of its major companies to discover, develop and market the best, most innovative, most effective and sought-after medicines and machines in the world. At the same time, the mid-size and smaller companies need to find their competitive niche in order to secure market share when operating within the same disease areas as the global giants formed by the mega mergers of recent years. To compete effectively in this fast-changing environment, market leaders recognize the need to monitor industry activity and competitor strategy as a regular part of doing business.
