"The worldwide pharmaceutical sector represents a significant opportunity," said Bruce Carlson, Publisher of Kalorama Information. "The financial struggles of 2009-2014 have created an impressive buyer's market for larger companies, as smaller firms struggle to extend financing."

The pharmaceutical industry is facing a tougher environment in general, due to harder regulations for gaining approvals for mainstream products, economic issues, and a dwindling pipeline of new products. Reliance on blockbuster drugs is all but over, causing a shift of focus for many drug research and development entities. By focusing on cosmetic medications, many manufacturers are realizing less scrutiny from the FDA and a growing need in the niche markets such as dermatology. This transition will play a role in the future development of the dermatological industry in the years ahead. The pharmaceutical sector has little choice but to continue expanding through mergers and acquisitions for some time to come. True globalization of pharmaceuticals has arrived. Most of the growth in the next few years will be outside the US, Europe and Japan. It's a very dynamic time for the industry focusing on a worldwide market.

LEO Pharma, an independent, research-based pharmaceutical company that develops, manufactures, and markets pharmaceutical drugs to dermatologic and thrombotic patients in more than 100 countries globally, is acquiring the assets related to Tokyo-based Astellas' treatments of acne and skin infections, including Protopic® for atopic dermatitis (except in Japan).

The driving forces for the prescription dermatological drugs market include growth and aging of the worldwide population, new products and technologies, and focus on lifestyle treatments that improve the effects of aging and damage to the skin. Within the pharmaceutical industry as a whole, financial depression, consolidation and economic downturns have influenced the market.

The worldwide market for prescription dermatology drugs includes products in the following categories:

  • Prescription Acne and Rosacea Drugs
