Growth in the Pharmaceutical Industry Shifting from the Developed to the Emerging Markets

Dr Kannan Vishwanath on Pharmaleaders Cover Page

Future growth in the developed pharmaceutical markets is expected to be buffeted by a massive wave of patent expirations coupled by numerous cost constraining measures.

February 14, 2013 9:44 am – The world market for prescription pharmaceuticals will grow at a CAGR of 5% exceeding revenues worth USD 1.1 trillion by 2017, according to a new report titled “Global Pharmaceutical Market Report & Forecast: 2012-2017”. The report which has done a comprehensive analysis on the global pharmaceutical industry expects this market to undergo a number of transitions which would impact the course of its growth.

The report expects the developed markets (United States, Western Europe and Japan) to remain the largest and the key markets for drug manufacturers. The total share of these markets in the overall global market, however, is expected to decline in the coming years. According to an analyst at IMARC Group, “although, the United States and other developed markets will continue to spend a significantly higher per capita on pharmaceuticals than other regions, future growth in these markets is expected to be buffeted by a massive wave of patent expirations coupled by numerous cost constraining measures. In the emerging markets, on the contrary, per-capita incomes are rapidly increasing. With increasing per capita incomes, the total spending on pharmaceuticals is also increasing. With emerging markets accounting for 45-50% of the global population, even a marginal increase in the per capita spending on pharmaceuticals represents a huge opportunity for drug manufacturers”. Apart from the shift of growth from the developed to the emerging markets, the report expects a number of other transitions which include – increasing focus onbiopharmaceuticals compared to small molecule drugs, an increasing preference for generics compared to their branded versions, an increasing focus on personalized medicine rather than blockbuster drugs, etc.
