Impact & Expertise


Biopharmaceutical companies are pressured by increasingly sophisticated and price-sensitive customers, regulatory regimes that are more conservative than before, reduced research and development (R&D) productivity, and increased intensity in competition. Executives seeking competitive advantage, therefore, are asking a number of questions:

  • How can we sustain growth in the face of patent expirations, a dearth of blockbusters, pressures on price and reimbursement, increasing competition, and lower-cost substitutes?

  • What organizational changes should we make to thrive in the new environment?

  • How can we reduce our cost base without sacrificing critical capabilities?

  • How should we transform our commercial organizations in light of quickly evolving conditions?

BCG supports biopharmaceutical clients on all major issues facing the industry. We offer broad experience and deep expertise in key areas such as strategy formulation, business transformation, and all functions of the biopharma value chain. Read More
