Real Results from Pharmaceutical Manufacturers

The pharmaceutical manufacturing industry has been under heavy pressure to drive innovation. But the industry has had to adapt to challenges. These include:

  • Supply Chain Disruption
    These are caused by:

    • Raw material shortage
    • Unprecedented changes in demand pattern
    • Inability to plan lead times
    • Labor shortage
  • Delayed Regulatory Oversight of Medicine Production
    • Pandemic-related travel restrictions due to delayed inspection of drug manufacturing plants in China and India
  • High Investment, Low Success
    Between 2011-2020, only 7.9% of projects received the likelihood of approval (LOA) in phase 1. The US pharma industry on the other hand spent $90 billion in 2020 on R&D.

It is incentives like the R&D Tax Credit that are designed to mitigate these challenges and help pharmaceutical manufacturers stay ahead of the curve, while uncovering additional dollars for innovation and business growth.

Importance of the
R&D Tax Credit

The Research and Development (“R&D”) tax credit has continuously evolved since its inception in the 1980s. Introduced to increase the competitiveness of U.S.-based businesses and promote innovative activities, it has now grown into one of the largest tax credits offered by the government. The credit has since been made permanent to incentivize companies to hire technical talent and continue innovating.

The R&D Tax Credit not only applies to formulation and testing done in labs but also extends to include daily activities in drug production.
