Marketing Communications Manager,
Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection, UK
The global pharmaceutical industry is booming. While North America still leads production with 41% of world pharmaceutical sales, Europe is catching up with 26.7%. According to the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, the European market alone generated more than 205 billion Euros in 2011, with Italy contributing about 25 billion. The worldwide healthcare industry is further boosted by growing market and research efforts in emerging economies such as Brazil, China and India, leading to a gradual migration of economic and research activities from Europe to these fast-growing markets.
