According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Growing pharmaceutical sales. It was accounted that the global pharmaceutical market witnessed a remarkable growth rate of around 9.5% between 2005 and 2015. This growth is expected to continue for next few years. In 2016, the US alone contributed around 45% to the growth of the global pharmaceutical market. Followed by the US, Japan and China are the other major growth contributors to the market. The increasing healthcare reforms in developed and developing countries are also triggering the growth of the global pharmaceutical market.


Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Reduced price of generic drugs in Europe. Unlike the US, Japan, and China, Europe has a higher percentage of share in generic drugs than innovator drugs. For instance, around 62% of the pharmaceutical market in the UK is acquired by generic drugs, whereas the pharmaceutical market in the US holds only around 43% for generic drugs. Generic drugs are the bioequivalent imitations of branded drugs with the same chemical formula and slight variations in coloring and flavoring. The cost of production is less for license holder generic drug manufacturers because the market for the drug already exists. The lower cost of production makes licensed generic drug manufacturers sell the drugs at a lower price than the originator. In addition, one-third of the European pharmaceutical manufacturers deal in generic drugs and cause supply demand mismatch. All these factors have been reducing the generic drugs prices in Europe since the past five years.
