Informa Markets, producer of the CPhI and Pharmapack Europe exhibitions, has launched Global Pharma Insights, our dedicated platform providing news, features, interviews and in-depth analysis on issues impacting pharmaceutical supply chains. 

The pharmaceutical product lifecycle is a complex process with several touchpoints that needs to balance efficient deployment of essential medicines to patients with strict safety compliance, in one of the world’s most heavily regulated sectors.

The global emergency that is COVID-19 has exerted even more pressure on pharmaceutical supply chains, as the industry races not only to develop potential vaccines and therapies for the virus in record time but also to scale up manufacturing to make these treatments available to a global population.

Each year we unite more than 100,000 pharmaceutical professionals through exhibitions, conferences and online communities. Global Pharma Insights provides information to aid effective decision making in all the following sectors and more:

• Drug development (pre-clinical and clinical) • API sourcing and procurement • Drug manufacturing and outsourcing • Pharmaceutical packaging and drug delivery • Pharmaceutical distribution • Cell and gene therapies • Cell and gene therapies • Artificial intelligence and machine learning
