A Well-Balanced Pipeline

Boehringer Ingelheim has a rich pipeline showing a number of new molecular entities and a high share of products in late phase development. The company has brought a range of products from its own research & development to market. A number of these drugs have either achieved blockbuster status with annual sales exceeding one billion US dollars or have blockbuster potential.
