As the COVID-19 pandemic remains a major global concern, pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers continue to adjust their operations, including with respect to supply planning, clinical trials, product launches, and the sales impact from new models of customer engagement from physicians and patients. In such a challenging and uncertain environment, pharmaceutical companies and their suppliers must keep fully informed on rapidly changing market conditions and the key trends impacting industry performance. Demand for products and how they are sourced and sold is changing constantly, as is the ability to conduct clinical trials, so industry executives must be fully informed in order to respond quickly and appropriately in this unprecedented market environment.

This 90-minute interactive webinar will provide up-to-the-minute market data and analysis on the current state and medium-term outlook of the global pharmaceutical industry. It will delve deeply into these crucial questions: (1) how have industry fundamentals been impacted in terms of growth prospects and product development; (2) what is the impact and projections for new product launches and the industry’s pipeline; and (3) what may be the “new normal” for the pharma industry, and what can the industry expect going forward?
