Scientific KPO for Drug Discovery

Scientific KPO is helping pharma companies stay ahead in the drug discovery race. Outsourcing bioinformatics and cheminformatics to India helps the global pharmaceutical industry face the challenges of drug development and forge ahead in the competitive environment. The costs of production of a new drug in the US presently range from $800 million to $1.2 billion, but are expected to soar to $2 billion by 2010, according to predictions by industry leaders. These costs are compounded by the 10 to 15 years it takes from drug discovery to actual patient usage.

Multinational pharma companies are under pressure to find ways to substantially improve the process of drug discovery and clinical trials in order to:

  • Reduce R&D costs
  • Shorten lead times from drug design, development and testing to patient
  • Improve the quality, effectiveness and safety of drugs
  • Keep prices competitive
  • Protect intellectual property

Outsourcing contract research to India

Global pharma companies have found the answer to these challenges lies in outsourcing contract research to India. They are successfully drawing on India's expertise in scientific knowledge process outsourcing in biopharmaceutical and life science research to move up the drug discovery value chain.

India: a global hub for scientific KPO

India is a natural scientific KPO hub, with its large pool of trained scientific manpower, expertise in IT and BPO, lower costs of research and clinical trials. India's KPO industry is on a high growth path. Globally, KPO revenues will grow 46 per cent to $17bn by 2010, and India is slated to capture more than 70 per cent ($12 billion) of the global market.

India's expertise in biotech and biopharma research places it among the top 10 biotech hubs of the world today. The biotech industry in India is confidently looking forward to reaching the US$5-billion mark by 2010, which would place India among the world's top 5 biotech hubs.

In this scenario, Flatworld Solutions is poised to deliver scientific KPO solutions that make a difference to the way global pharma companies do business.
