Highlights

For an increasingly risk-averse industry, licensing deals represent a more affordable, less risky alternative to M&A transactions. They are being used to strengthen pipelines, manage major brand life-cycles, expand or restructure portfolios, access new technologies, and enter new geographical markets.
Cancer has emerged as the therapeutic area in which most deals are being struck. Other key therapy area targets include infectious disease, CNS disorders, metabolic/endocrine disease and auto-immune/inflammatory conditions. Rights to assets in these five therapy areas were traded in around two-thirds of all deals.
Declared financial commitments to assets licensed by the world's ten biggest pharmaceutical companies totaled more than US$78bn in the five-year period to 2010. GSK was the biggest contributor to that figure, signing deals involving up-front fees and potential milestone payments that could exceed US$19bn.
