'Pharmaceutical Contract Sales Market Will Reach $3,912m in 2013' Predicts new Visiongain Report

LONDON, November 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

A new report by visiongain predicts that the global market for pharmaceutical contract sales will be worth $3,912m in 2013. Between 2011 and 2017, the worldwide market will grow with a CAGR of over 8%. Demand for outsourced sales teams will drive growth during this decade. Those findings and others appear in World Pharmaceutical Contract Sales Market 2013-2023, published in November 2012. Visiongain is a business information provider based in London, UK.

Personal promotion will account for the largest proportion of pharma contract sales organisation (CSO) revenues throughout the 10-year forecast period. However, faster growth will come from other sectors of the contract sales market. Outsourcing of non-personal promotion will increase from 2012 to 2023, driven in the early years by greater use of teledetailing. Innovation and improvements to current technology will provide greater opportunities for virtual detailing. In 2023, outsourced edetailing will account for close to $200m in CSO revenues, the report shows.

Richard Lang, a pharmaceutical industry analyst for visiongain, said: "Pharmaceutical sales models are changing rapidly. Healthcare payers have greater influence in prescribing decisions, complicating market access strategies for pharmaceutical companies. CSOs are expanding beyond traditional sales services to meet demand for market access expertise from pharmaceutical partners. Add-on services, such as medical education and patient compliance, will offer new sources of revenue for CSOs in the period 2013-2023.

"Our study forecasts the leading national pharmaceutical contract sales markets. In 2011, the US and Europe dominated the market, accounting for more than 75% of global revenues. However, market leaders, such as inVentiv Health, Quintiles and United Drug, already operate on a global scale. Recently these companies made advances into emerging markets, establishing offices in the BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India and China). Drug developers are increasingly interested in entering emerging markets, looking to take advantage of expanding healthcare coverage, rising wealth, and large patient populations. Outsourcing will provide local expertise in market access and sales models. Fast growth is forecast for all four of the BRIC nations, in terms of contract sales, to 2023."

World Pharmaceutical Contract Sales Market 2013-2023 provides original quantitative and qualitative analyses of the pharma contract sales market. It shows revenue forecasts to 2023 for the overall world market, submarkets and prominent national markets. It also identifies and discusses future trends likely to affect that industry and market. The study adds to visiongain's portfolio of analytical reports covering pharmaceutical outsourcing and service markets.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...
Electric power utilities face relentless pressure on their financial performance, and reducing distribution grid losses is one of the last untapped opportunities to meet their business goals. Combining IoT-enabled sensors and cloud-based data analytics, utilities now are able to find, quantify and reduce losses faster – and with a smaller IT footprint. Solutions exist using Internet-enabled sensors deployed temporarily at strategic locations within the distribution grid to measure actual line loads.
“In the past year we've seen a lot of stabilization of WebRTC. You can now use it in production with a far greater degree of certainty. A lot of the real developments in the past year have been in things like the data channel, which will enable a whole new type of application," explained Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, in this interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
