Pharmaceutical Sourcing and Onshoring Survey – 2022 Edition

Pages: 36 Published: July 29, 2022 Report Code: GDUKPHAR100058

Recent geopolitical events are causing the pharma industry to consider its supply chain more carefully than ever. Highly developed pharma markets rely on foreign suppliers for their drugs, especially China and India. The COVID-19 pandemic, rising raw material and fuel costs, Russia’s war against Ukraine, and other events are prompting industry conversations about drug shortages and supply chain security.

In this report, GlobalData assesses the outlook for pharmaceutical supply chains over the next 12 months, to determine to what extent bio/pharmaceutical companies and their service providers are concerned, and whether they plan to “onshore” or “offshore” their manufacturing steps.
