An international overview of a highly complex scientific and technological sector where data collection and analysis make the difference. Pharmintech Monitor, the Observatory of Pharmintech Exhibition has been developed to provide a broad and documented overview and to offer interesting insights and forecasts for the world of Life Sciences.

A pool of experts and analysts, in collaboration with the UCIMA Study Centre, is responsible for studying the markets of reference of the different countries, offering privileged points of view based on economic data, statistics and sectoral studies. The new website not only provides access to constantly updated information, news and studies but also offers a section dedicated to Pharmintech Monitor, through which, with a simple email, you can get in direct contact with the researchers of the UCIMA Study Centre to obtain details and in-depth information on the published data and on the countries analysed.

To promote communication between visitors, buyers and exhibitors Pharmintech has launched a communication campaign on the social media platforms Linkedin, Linkedin Groups, Twitter e Facebook.

Previews reveal that – after satisfactory growth rates in the 2014-2016 period, 2017 suffered from a global slowdown.

Nevertheless, high performances were recorded in some specific markets.

Pharmintech Monitor is not merely a static picture of the industry situation. In fact, the data collected and processed showsa positive outlook for the four-year period 2018-2021, with an average forecast of 3.5 growth rate, globally.

The data produced by Pharmintech Monitor will be included in a detailed report that will be presented at the opening event of Pharmintech Exhibition on Wednesday 10 April 2019.
