Industry Showcase: Pharmaceuticals

The industry showcase is back! In this instalment, we delve into the diverse range of industries that EWFM serves, shedding light on their unique requirements and challenges. In the past editions, we’ve looked into key sectors including oil and gas, food and drink, chemicals, and cryogenics. This month, our spotlight is on the pharmaceutical industry, a vital sector with significant impact.

The pharmaceutical industry in the UK stands as a formidable force, boasting a staggering turnover exceeding £40.8 billion. Internationally, it proudly secures its position within the global top 10, commanding a notable 2.6 percent share of the worldwide pharmaceutical sector.

About the pharmaceutical industry:

Pharmaceuticals, in essence, encompass a wide array of substances designed and formulated to serve the critical purposes of diagnosing, treating, preventing, or alleviating a multitude of medical conditions in both humans and animals. This intricate process involves a fusion of scientific research, chemical synthesis, and rigorous testing to ensure the trifecta of safety, efficacy, and quality. With diverse forms such as tablets, capsules, liquids, injections, creams, and ointments, pharmaceuticals cater to an extensive range of medical needs. Governed by stringent regulations set by health authorities, these products must meet rigorous standards before they gain approval for public use.

The pharmaceutical industry has experienced a notable surge in revenue, driven by a combination of factors that have, unfortunately, stemmed from global challenges. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic prompted a heightened awareness and concern for health, causing a significant uptick in demand for pharmaceutical products. The rapid development of vaccines became a global imperative, resulting in substantial investments from governments worldwide to expedite research and production.

Notably, the United Kingdom stands as a stronghold in the pharmaceutical landscape. Home to industry giants such as GSK (GlaxoSmithKline) and AstraZeneca, the nation holds the headquarters of these global leaders. These companies play an instrumental role in shaping the pharmaceutical landscape, contributing products that touch and improve countless lives on a daily basis.
