The Pharma & Healthcare industry is of vital importance for human and economic development, providing a wide range of goods and services relevant to the promotion of health at all stages in the healthcare process – from prevention and treatment to rehabilitation and palliative care. It is one of the fastest-growing industries, supported by profound demographic changes, the rising incidence of non-communicable diseases, and surging per capita health spending in both developed and emerging markets. The industry is also one of the major innovators, with increasing expenditures on development of new molecules, biotechnology and adoption of new technologies that provide advanced healthcare and ensure the longevity of the population.
The Pharma & Healthcare industry comprises the manufacture of pharmaceuticals for human and veterinary use, medical equipment and related supplies. It also includes providers of ambulatory health services, medical and diagnostic laboratories, hospitals, and nursing and residential care facilities.
