A Global Biopharmaceutical Giant

Biopharmaceutical R&D Benchmarking Guide

The Challenge

Conduct a detailed assessment of the R&D and relevant business activities of top biopharmaceutical companies to garner an understanding of research and business-related strengths and weaknesses.

Provide recommendations to the client that will guide them during their annual strategic business planning across in target technology platforms, applications, and investments


  • Important parameters of the study included analysis of platforms, pipeline, financials, people/expertise and strategy
  • The project also involved benchmarking the R&D capabilities and strategies of the competing firms and develop a quantitative assessment of relative technological positioning of client versus their competitors.

Our Approach

Led by Frost & Sullivan’s VP of TechVision, based in New York, the team:

  • Established networks with SVP, VPs and Directors across top biopharmaceutical companies to understand under the radar developments.
  • Collated and assimilated primary data points across pertinent categories i.e. Strategy, Technology, and Emerging opportunities.
  • Developed a weight metric system to analyze qualitative information and arrive at a suitable comparative assessment.


The main deliverable was a Benchmarking and Competitive Intelligence Report, highlighted by an on-site client presentation with the following structure:

  • The client’s peers benchmarked and evaluated across multiple parameters
  • The overall pipeline database with in-depth information on all pipeline products
  • Interactive pipeline visualization platform on iFrost
  • Frost & Sullivan’s Recommended Approach
  • We also delivered an interactive iFrost platform during the client presentation, which enables continued access to growing database information.

White Space Analysis, IP Perspectives

The Challenge

The client was interested in analyzing the white space pertaining to a given drug delivery process.


Evaluate the white space that exists for a particular form of drug delivery technology, such that the Client can venture and develop further with respect to technologies in the space which had little or no IP activity.

Our Approach

  • F&S assembled a team of subject matter experts (technical experts and patent analysts) to do the stated work.
  • Several parameters were ascertained with respect to which the white space was to be analyzed.
  • The entire portfolio (patent as well as non-patent literature) for the given technology was studied to understand the existing patenting activity in the given technology space.
  • The study of the existing IP activity threw light on the gaps that persist, where the Client can further act on for R&D.

Our Outcome

  • Analysis of the portfolio with respect to the pre-decided parameters.
  • The application areas of the given technology
  • The different manufacturing methods of the drug delivery system.
  • The different components that are used to develop the particular technology.
  • The various bioactive materials that can be delivered via this method.
