#CPHI22: Sup­ply chain woes are still bear­ing down on man­u­fac­tur­ers

It’s no se­cret that the wider events in the glob­al land­scape, such as the lin­ger­ing ef­fects of Covid-19 as well as the on­go­ing con­flict in Ukraine and in­fla­tion costs, have made man­u­fac­tur­ers feel the pinch this year. These el­e­ments have cre­at­ed chal­lenges for man­u­fac­tur­ers and man­ag­ing sup­ply chains.

Look­ing deep­er in­to the sup­ply chain is­sues, Au­re­lio Arias, the en­gage­ment man­ag­er for thought lead­er­ship at IQVIA, said in an email to End­points News that now ris­ing en­er­gy costs are the lat­est sup­ply is­sue to hit. This was brought up by Elis­a­beth Stam­pa, pres­i­dent of Med­i­cines for Eu­rope, a group that rep­re­sents the gener­ic in­dus­try on the con­ti­nent. Stam­pa had sent a let­ter ad­dressed to en­er­gy min­is­ters and com­mis­sion­ers con­cern­ing in­fla­tion and the costs of en­er­gy on the sup­ply of gener­ic med­i­cines.
