Client Background:

The Europe-based Pharma Company is a leading research and development (R&D) company with a vision to launch more affordable drugs and improve productivity through cost-effective R&D. Despite its track record of successful drug development, the company had faced challenges in the production of drugs to higher costs and longer development timelines. To address these issues, the company decided to collaborate with a renowned healthcare consultancy firm to identify and implement strategic solutions.


  1. High R&D costs as the existing drug development process had become costly, with high investments spendings required by the company for drug discovery, clinical trials, and regulatory approvals.
  2. Long R&D cycles of the company had delayed product launches leading to high spending on drug launching, leading to missed market opportunities, and reduced competitiveness and market share.
  3. The company aimed to develop more affordable drugs to cater to a broader patient base and more product lines, but the high R&D costs hindered this objective of the company.
