2013 Life-Science Global Trends Forecast Review

By Daniel R. Matlis

“Past Performance is No Guarantee of Future Results, “goes the disclaimer; but it is a good practice to look back and evaluate past performance for accuracy.

At the beginning of the year, we issued our “Life-Science Global Trends Forecast” where we identified the following as key areas impacting the industry in 2013:

  1. Regulatory Environment → Tougher global regulatory environment
  2. Emerging Markets → Growth in emerging markets
  3. Brand & IP Protection → Protecting brand equity and intellectual property
  4. Supply Chain → Need for supply chain resilience
  5. Smart-Sourcing → Focus on value instead of cost

Looking back at 2013, I think few would disagree that our forecast was On-Target.
