Who are the Top Big Pharma Dealmakers by Volume, and How Does Their in-Licensing Activity Compare With out-Licensing? – Research and Markets

DUBLIN, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Big Pharma Licensing Trends, 2011-15” report to their offering.

Key to predicting future trends in Big Pharma deal-making is reviewing the peer set’s most recent activity. Between 2011 and 2015, Big Pharma – a peer set of approximately 16 firms across the world with large R&D and sales organizations, and sales valued at $10bn or more – signed over 1,100 drug-focused deals, growing at a compound annual growth rate of 10%. Overall, Big Pharma represented the majority of the monetary value of all biopharma partnerships: the peer group was responsible for $133bn of deal-making during the five-year period versus the $254bn in all comparable biopharma alliances (including the Big Pharma peer set).

As of mid-2015, Big Pharma companies had in the pipeline for cancer approximately 279 candidates, which is well over two times that of any other therapeutic area. This was reflected in deal-making; between 2011 and 2015, nearly two-thirds of Big Pharma’s in- and out-licensing deals were in oncology, and immuno-oncology was the key driver of oncology in-licensing.

This report addresses the following questions:

– Who are the top Big Pharma dealmakers by volume, and how does their in-licensing activity compare with out-licensing?

– How has the emergence of immuno-oncology affected overall oncology dealmaking and values?

– Besides oncology, what therapeutic areas are driving Big Pharma dealmaking and why?

– What therapeutic areas and deal structures are driving Big Pharma out-licensing?

– At what stages of development does the Big Pharma peer set tend to partner, and what are the average payments per phase?
