The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in Northern Ireland's economy. It employs a significant number of people and has a track record of globally recognised research achievements to go with its valuable manufacturing base. The industry represents companies covering a range of activities, from research to manufacturing and sales. Northern Ireland's pharmaceutical sector has achieved strides in biomedical research, including developments in cancer, cardiovascular disease and cystic fibrosis research. The Fraser of Allander Institute has been commissioned by the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI) Northern Ireland to understand the economic contribution of the pharmaceutical industry to the Northern Ireland economy.
