Following on from the success of last year's survey, Outsourcing-Pharma is running another 'state of the industry' survey to gauge views about the current state of the pharmaceutical contract services industry.

Last year presented several challenges for the industry, yet, overall, survey respondents felt more positive than previously. This sentiment prevailed despite 80% agreeing that the current political environment is creating challenges for the industry. Additionally, many agreed that an increasing amount of negative news focused on the industry also has caused difficulties.

What is the current state of the industry?

We’d love to hear your views on the outsourcing landscape – the trends, challenges, and opportunities it presents.

As an incentive for answering our 5-minute survey​, all named entries will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad mini.

All surveys must be completed by 15th June 2018. We will communicate the name of the lucky winner and the results of this survey in July.

We would also like to reassure you of the anonymity of your response. No mention will be made of either you or your company in the published results.

Thank you in advance for your time and feedback,
