Promotion through field representatives is the most dependable strategy followed by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies. However, communication through this channel is not effective as desired, especially for highly potential novel molecules. This can be effectively addressed by medical animation as it allows customer engagement and visual understanding of the product. Medical animation was initially a niche area within the animation and graphics industry. The medical animation market is developing, due to interest of various pharmaceuticals manufacturers, medical organizations, medical device manufacturers, and life sciences research firms. For instance, Amgen, Pfizer, Inc. and Salix Pharmaceuticals are developing a drug delivery animation for patient education. As the medical and pharmaceutical products are getting more complicated, the demand for medical animation is increasing more frequently to explain the function of the products clearly and to emphasize specific values of individual product by animating their complexity and uniqueness. For instance, Random42 scientific communication has worked with 23 top pharmaceutical companies including Abbott, Allergan, Pfizer, Merck, and Janssen for creating medical animation, where the company has also created digital assets for over 550 global pharmaceutical products. Random42 Scientific Communication also launched a new medical animation showreel in March 2017, as the showreel is the selection of Random42’s best medical animation work that were produced over last few year, which is expected to attract the pharmaceutical or medical device manufacturers to the medical animation. The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, with the support of Rubin Postaer and Associates (RPA), a Californian advertising agency, is working to combat childhood cancer with their newly established Imaginary Friend Society, which consists of 20 animated short films that provide comforting and empowering narratives for the children undergoing cancer treatment, in turn supporting the growth of medical animation. Key players in the market are engaged in adopting various medical animation technologies to promote their product brand which in turn will boost their overall sales.
