NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Increasing Volume and Decreasing Value
Objectives of the StudyRationale for M&As
The challenges posed by expiring patents, the global economic slowdown, generic competition, reduced healthcare spending, and price premium pressures are forcing the pharma and biotech industry to restructure and streamline strategies to increase profitability. M&As have become key for the reversal of reduced profitability by opening access to new markets while creating more revenue pools and to some extent compensating for the depletion of the R&D pipeline.
- Big pharma's contribution to M&A deal value has been decreasing, unlocking big pharma's inability to participate in high-value deals over the past few years.- The trend of increasing low-value deals is expected to continue. However, big pharma's balance sheets show signs of a few mega deals.- North America remains the most active region in terms of both number and value of deals.- The pharmaceutical and biotechnology stock market indices continue to outperform the S&P 500 index.- Biotechnology deals witnessed higher stock premiums compared to the pharmaceutical sector.- Horizontal integration remains key in both the pharmaceutical and biotechnology sectors.
