What is Pharmaceutical? 

In order to treat patients, immunise them, or relieve their symptoms, the pharmaceutical industry finds, develops, produces, and promotes medicines or pharmaceutical drugs for usage as medications to be delivered to patients (or self-administered). Pharmaceutical companies may sell both brand-name and generic drugs and medical equipment. They must abide by a number of laws and rules that control the marketing, testing, safety, efficacy, and patenting of medicines. In 2020, the global pharmaceuticals market will have generated therapies worth $1,228.45 billion with a CAGR of 1.8 percent.

What various types of pharmaceutical are there?    

Mainline: These are the bigger pharmaceutical firms with a wide range of medications under their belt. Additionally, these well-known businesses, like Pfizer, employ thousands of researchers and operate numerous production facilities.

Research and development: These are more compact research institutions and pharmaceutical companies. Additionally, even though they don't have any medications on the market, they work as subcontractors on bigger projects for bigger companies to assist with clinical trial observation.

Generic: Since the loss of medicine patent protection helps to lower manufacturing costs, generic drug businesses support the mass production of pharmaceuticals. Additionally, these pharmaceutical firms contribute to the more affordable distribution of patent-expired medications by focusing less on R&D.

Manufacturers of AIs: These businesses create biomolecules, bulk chemicals, and other AIs for pharmaceutical companies. Additionally, they contribute to the production of serums, vaccines, and other goods.
