Trends in Outsourcing by Big Pharma

Whether it's for pharmaceutical drugs, or consumer packaged goods, outsourcing is now commonplace for manufacturers. This study referenced shows the expected behaviors of the pharmaceutical "giants" to use outsourcing for the next year.  What's interesting to me is the very, very slight uptick--you might even attribute it to a sampling error--in the use of outsourcing for 2013/14.  Could it be that the benefits expected aren't there?  Or that it's just easier to regain those internal competencies?  In any case, this study doesn't, in my opinion, show a strong, sustainable drive for outsourcing for this industry in the future.
