BIO: A Cost Savings Partnership for Life Sciences Companies

Posted by: Mitja-Alexander Linss

The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted a need across biotechnology firms and other life sciences companies to find new ways to accelerate discovery—while containing R&D costs. Although the global pandemic has created a heightened sense of urgency to address these challenges, they are not new to the industry.

In fact, according to Deloitte's 2019-2020 Life Sciences Global Cost Survey, the vast majority of life sciences companies reported aggressive cost reduction targets of 10 percent or higher, but most (88%) failed to fully achieve their targets. The report also found that most life sciences companies are looking to digital solutions as a way to save time and cut costs—with automation noted as the technology expected to be most actively implemented over the next two years.
