Through this launch, the company expanded its product offering in the UNICORN software segment. In addition, GE Healthcare has also adopted inorganic strategies such as agreements. For example, GE Healthcare Life Sciences entered into an agreement with Zenith Technologies (Ireland), a company which delivers manufacturing execution systems (MES), automation, and process control excellence to life science companies across the globe. The agreement enabled GE Healthcare to integrate Zenith’s process control systems, MES, and other supporting technologies with its start-to-finish technologies and solutions to support biopharmaceutical manufacturing
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (U.S.) is one of the leaders in serving science. In order to sustain its strong position in this market, the company mainly concentrates on product launches. For instance, in July 2016, the company launched the Axiom Precision Medicine Research Array for epidemiologists and genomics researchers. The company also focuses on inorganic growth strategies such as agreements to strengthen its market position in the HTPD market. For instance, in August 2016, the company signed a distribution agreement with Hamilton Bonaduz AG (Switzerland), a leading provider of manual and automated liquid handling, process measurement, and storage solutions for forensic applications. Under this agreement, Thermo Fisher will distribute Hamilton’s automation instruments and consumables in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and China, and helped to strengthen its geographical presence.
Merck Millipore (Germany) is a leading company that offers a broad range of bioreactor systems and consumables for biomanufacturing. To strengthen its position in the life science industry, it acquired Sigma-Aldrich (U.S.), a multinational chemical, life science, and biotechnology company which enhanced its product portfolio, capabilities, and geographical presence.
The company strives to launch new products in order to strengthen its business position in the market. Besides the product launches, the company also focuses on other strategies such as expansions. In accordance with this, in January 2017, the company established its process development centers in Boston (U.S.) and Shanghai (China). These centers will provide a full range of process development services, which include cell line development services, both upstream and downstream process development, as well as non-GMP clinical production
Agilent Technologies, Inc. (U.S.) is one of the leading players in the HTPD market. It has been adopting organic as well as inorganic growth strategies to ensure its key position in the global market.
