But pharmaceutical business is also a slow one as compared to the other one as it grows slowly over time. So you need to have enough patience if you are not getting quick results. Below some reasons are given which justify why pharma business and marketing is a slow one.
Competition– Pharma market is a highly competitive market. Many new start-ups introduce themselves every day in the market.
