The pharmaceuticals sector is a significant contributor to the Scottish economy and a key player in Scotland's life sciences sector. In this report, we use our detailed model of the Scottish economy to quantify the economic impact and wider spill-over effects of Scotland's Manufacturing of Pharmaceuticals sector. This report also includes analysis that considers a broader group of pharmaceutical contributors, which is most representative of ABPI members, that we call the 'Wider Pharmaceuticals sector'. Additionally, this report models the impact of the Life Sciences sector – a Scottish Government 'Growth Sector'. This report goes beyond economic impact assessment, highlighting these sectors' wider impact on the Scottish economy.
