The CPhI Worldwide 2002 Conference Preview - Where Science Comes First

This is where the CPhI conference comes in. The two-day programme will include high profile speakers presenting papers with in-depth scientific information on pharmaceutical techniques. The best way to measure the success of an exhibition such as CPhI Worldwide is to look at the actual number of attendees. Last year's combined event hosted 8,703 individual visitors, from over 110 countries around the world. Together with the exhibitors, the CPhI event in 2001 attracted almost 18,000 industry professionals.




France - A Major Market for Pharmaceuticals

'The French fine pharmaceutical chemicals industry is responsible for an annual turnover of US$3.7 billion and creates employment for over 20,000 people. Its 58 million residents - the second largest market in Europe and fourth largest in the world - are Europe's largest per capita consumers of pharmaceutical products. When calculated as a percentage of total health spending, France spends twice as much as the US does on medicine. Total turnover for pharmaceutical products amounted to US$20 billion in 1996 (approximately US$18 billion), about a quarter of which was exported.

The French pharmaceutical industry comprises 334 pharmaceutical companies in a very fragmented market. The top 20 companies in France controlled just 53 per cent of the domestic market in 1996. France ranked third after the US and Japan in a number of new pharmaceutical product launches in 1995. In 1996, France hosted the second highest number of biotech companies in Europe and, this year, hosts the third highest (1).

The Flexible Factory Concept: A flexible bioprocessing platform to meet the changing needs of biomanufacturing

GE Healthcare Life Sciences

For the past several years, the biopharma industry has been buffeted by dynamic market conditions that are rapidly reshaping manufacturing requirements. These factors include: • The rise of small-market pharmaceuticals that do not require the production scale of the previous “blockbuster” drug model • Increased titers and process productivity that generate more bulk-product within a much smaller manufacturing footprint • The emergence of biosimilars and continued evolution of healthcare reform, which will increasingly pressure drug pricing and require greater cost discipline • Greater competition and shorter patent protection timelines, which will further ratchet up time-to-market pressures • Tighter capital markets that will create heightened scrutiny for all new investment projects
