Pharmaceutical companies have operated successfully for decades by following the premise that development of new drugs would allow success, growth and expansion. One of the success stories of believing to this premise is Schering - Plough's experience of Garamycin (gentamycin). From the late sixties to 1980 when the patent expired the aminoglycoside antibiotic market was dominated by this company's gentamycin, despite strong competition from comparable medicines such as Lilly's Nebcin (tobramycin), Bristol-Myers Squibb's Amikin (amikacin).

This kind of portfolio was built on the basis of the specific technological knowledge and experience of the company. The key ingredient for success was to heavily invest in technology and Research & Development. The companies have to re-invest the earning.
