Chemistry and Pharmaceuticals

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries have been of great significance for the German economy for many years and have been essential drivers of growth, employment and innoviation in Germany. Owing to long development cycles as well as to high costs for research and development in these sectors, companies are faced with major challenges ─ innovations, mergers and acquisitions are therefore part of the daily business. For the chemical industry, limited natural resources and the related search for alternatives are important and ongoing issues. For the pharmaceutical industry,  factors such as legal parameters, the ins and out of VAT and changes in tax privileges for license and patent earnings influence the present course of business.
