This sector has invested $500 million annually in research and development. Nevertheless, moderate economic conditions, an ageing population, a greater emphasis on a healthy lifestyle and higher healthcare standards, innovation and technology advancements towards new products such as biologic medicines (any medicinal product manufactured in or extracted from biological sources) and more specialty drugs with higher prices, will all drive industry growth.
