Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnology
Pharmaceutical companies are located in both the United States and abroad. Many companies are multinational, but there are also thousands of start-ups—especially in biotechnology—that have one location. Pharmaceutical companies range from large companies with many approved drugs on the market, to newer firms that have products in the development pipeline but none on the market, to generic drug manufacturers. Medical equipment and device manufacturers are also often classified as part of the pharma/biotech industry.
