DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jp3lpt/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Pharmaceutical & Biotechnology Outlook 2014: Mature Biotech" report to their offering.
Positive sentiments for the biotech sector have prevailed in the last two to three years, and the authors expect this trend to continue for the next year too. The optimism is based on the continuity in the flow of innovative products from the biotech pipeline, implementation of strategic decisions to improve cost efficiency, strengthen therapeutic leadership, and hedge against generic threats - which all lend stability to the business model.
Focus and interest in Orphan diseases remains and Alexion kept everyone guessing on the possible acquisition. BMRN, Alexion are likely candidates to be acquired in this space. In the next five years the distinction between some mature biotech companies and large global pharma may become blurred especially if there is consolidation within the sector.
AMGN was the first amongst the peers to declare a dividend and this has raised the bar/expectations from others too.
