Global Vaccine Demand Driving Pharmaceutical R&D Industry Towards $813 Bn in 2026

New York, NY — (SBWIRE) — 01/28/2022 — The need to find ways to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic has created significant global vaccine demand that is driving the pharmaceutical R&D industry towards a forecast of $813 billion by 2026. This is almost double the figures for 2020 and 2021 and represents a spike that even the most positive of outlooks could not have predicted. It has created a whole new swathe of R&D jobs in pharma and opportunities for those looking to take bold steps in this career. There is no doubt that one of the driving forces behind the substantial value increase is the global vaccine demand but there has also been a spike in pharmaceutical R&D spending. Another factor that is considered influential in increasing the size of the industry is the increase in the size of the geriatric population and the incidence rate of chronic disorders. Two key factors will have an influence when it comes to making this expansion happen: logistics and the availability of skilled professionals.

EPM Scientific works with businesses across life sciences to ensure that the right skilled professionals are available to support growth in areas such as pharmaceutical R&D.
