This segment will grow at 9% a year going forward, following recent growth of 11.6%, but it will remain in fifth place for market size.     

Global Analysis

The global pharmaceuticals market was worth $934.8 billion in 2017 and will reach $1170 billion in 2021, growing at 5.8%, according to a recent pharma market research report by The Business Research Company.

The largest pharma market globally is for musculoskeletal drugs. These are treatments for diseases such as rheumatoid- and osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, rotator cuff tear, muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, lupus erythematosus and others. Major drugs in this segment include Piroxicam Glaxo, Dolonex, Felden, and Piroxicam Pfizer. The segment accounted for 14% of the global total in 2017. Cardiovascular, oncology and anti-infective drugs are the second third and fourth-largest markets.

Drugs for treating metabolic disorders such as diabetes and diseases of the thyroid and pituitary glands will be the fastest-growing segment of the global pharma market to 2021. This segment will grow at 9% a year going forward, following recent growth of 11.6%, but it will remain in fifth place for market size.

Pharmaceutical drugs are subject to a large number of laws and regulations that deal with patenting, testing, safety, efficacy and marketing and affect the size and growth rates of the market. Together with the high R&D costs involved in creating new drug solutions, these can act as barriers to entry for small companies. However, pharmaceutical companies produce both generic and branded drugs. Generics, which are copies of patent-expired drugs, are opportunities for smaller entrants. They are taking an increasing share of the market, particularly in developing economies, where governments are encouraging their production in order to make lower-price treatments more widely available.

In the overall market, top pharmaceutical companies include:

  • Novartis

  • Sanofi

  • Pfizer

  • Hoffman-La Roche

  • Gilead

Together the top ten pharmaceutical companies account for 30% of global sales, making the market moderately fragmented. Within individual segments, however, the share of these pharmaceutical companies varies: Hoffman-La Roche is by some way the leading pharmaceutical company in the large oncology drugs market, but Sanofi leads in the cardiovascular and metabolic disorders segments.

Markets Covered: Musculoskeletal disorder drugs, cardiovascular drugs, oncology drugs, anti-infective drugs, metabolic disorder drugs, central nervous system drugs, genito-urinary drugs, gastrointestinal drugs, hematology drugs, dermatology drugs, ophthalmology drugs, drugs for respiratory diseases.

Regional Analysis

Australia’s pharmaceutical market is set to rise from just over $22.85 billion in 2016 to $25.2 billion by 2020, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2%, according to research and consulting firm Global Data.

This modest growth will be driven by good market access to pharmaceutical drugs, increasing awareness of the need for the early detection of lifestyle and chronic diseases, the subsidised cost of prescription medicines through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) for all eligible patients, and the annual addition of new drugs to the PBS drug list, the report.

According to Global Data, Australia's pharmaceutical market currently represents a knowledge-based, technology-intensive industry, and is positioned to advance Australia’s economic output and social wellbeing.

The industry receives significant financial support from the government through the sale of medicines listed in the PBS and an R&D tax incentive.
