By the end of 2019, the global biopharmaceuticals market is expected to be worth USD $269.3 billion. An increase in the elderly population, a surge of chronic diseases and illnesses, increases in cancer as well as HIV/AIDS and diabetes, and expanding interest in biopharma are behind the industry’s rapid growth. As more and more innovations lead to the treatment of previously untreatable diseases, more research is being focused on biopharmaceuticals because of their high effectiveness and low side effects. Businesses and labs are working on new therapies, drugs, and devices that have the potential to guarantee food security, accessible healthcare, and improved quality of life. In an ever-changing landscape, it is essential to stay two steps ahead of the game. Here are the top biopharma conferences and events to attend in 2019.
