But for how much longer is the question occupying the minds not just of big pharma executives, but of health professionals and governments the world over.
There are already signs of trouble ahead – thousands of job losses and widespread consolidation are hardly characteristics of an industry in rude health.
But this is just the beginning of a process that could fundamentally change the pharmaceutical sector forever.
