The pharmaceutical industry is perfectly positioned to enjoy the benefits of industrial IoT technologies.

The evolving and strict regulatory landscape within the sector has resulted in  cautious approach to adopting emerging technology. 

However, recent years have seen falling R&D productivity, cost increases, compliance and non-adherence challenges, patents expiring and stakeholder expectations evolving which is driving the pharma sector to look at IoT (Internet of Things) and other technologies for a solution.
