Consolidation of Major Pharma Companies Challenges the Intermediates Market

Suppliers of pharmaceutical intermediates are being forced to rethink their production strategies due to the mergers of major pharma companies, significantly shrinking their customer base. The slow drug approval rate by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is another critical factor hampering demand for intermediates. Pharma companies are resorting to in-house technology, thereby reducing the outsourcing to custom manufacturers. Intermediate suppliers are, therefore, left with excess capacity and sluggish demand. To counter this problem, intermediate suppliers are focusing on restructuring their business, either by forming profitable alliances to expand their customer base or even exiting the market.

This research analyzes the major challenges and opportunities facing the pharmaceutical intermediates market. The sectors that have been covered include the carbon-carbon bond forming, chiral, nitrogen, phosphorus, photo, redox, and sulphur chemistries apart from condensation, saponification, and halogenation. The research also throws light on many of the key drivers and restraints READ MORE >
