The Global Biotechnology industry comprises a large range of firms engaged in diverse biotechnology activities such as pharmaceutical development, genetic mapping for livestock breeding and the development of pest-resistant crops. Industry firms also span a wide spectrum of operational models. On one end, some small, dedicated biotechnology companies are research and development (R&D) intensive and operate primarily with venture capital, grants, initial public offerings and collaborative agreements. On the other end, large, diversified companies hold significant in-house R&D resources and well-established production, commercialization and distribution processes.
Firms in this industry primarily use living organisms or molecular and cellular techniques to develop products that are used in agriculture, food, industrial and medicine production.
