Previewing the year to come, our journalists contacted more than 80 industry executives and experts for their views on what 2020 could hold for the biopharma sector. A series of articles based on these discussions were published by In Vivo’s sister publication Scrip. The following are highlights of the key issues that are top of mind for industry leaders this year, including digital tools, advanced therapies, the US election and manufacturing.
From the general to the particular: drug developers are increasingly tailoring therapies to individuals. Driven by important advances in understanding biology as well as new tools to harness big data, industry participants expect significant progress in biopharma’s approach to the patient.
The US election will intensify the spotlight on drug costs, regulators will have their hands full with advanced therapy filings, and the need to address rising infectious disease threats will mount. Biosimilars, cannabis and Brexit are among other hot topics for 2020.
Executives and analysts predict trends spanning M&A, leadership diversity, curative gene therapy commercialization, biosimilars strategy and more. Expect technology innovation to continue to drive investment and deal making in biopharma.
Advances in multiple scientific areas will mature into novel therapeutics, often tailored for the individual patient and increasingly curative, making biopharma an exciting place to be in 2020.
