The top ten pharmaceutical companies in Finland had combined sales of over 1.0 billion euros at wholesale prices in 2010, equal to a share of over half of the market.

The increasing pharmaceutical expenditure in Denmark has led to price freezes and caps in recent years. The savings made have been more than counterbalanced by the wider use of new and expensive pharmaceuticals, which are required to ensure the most effective treatment. This is especially true in areas such as hypertension, high cholesterol and so on, where many new therapies have become available recently. With Denmark pharmaceutical market having strong domestic production, many producers focus on the export market. Due to the presence of Novo Nordisk, Denmark is a major global supplier of insulin in retail form. In August 2011, Novo Nordisk announced it is planning to build two new office buildings in Bagsværd. Previously, in June 2011, the company announced it is to invest in a new plant in Kalundborg, for the production of biopharmaceuticals. Complete report @

Most global companies have some manufacturing presence in the pharmaceutical market in Ireland. Drugs are either produced in finished form for export, or exported on to other facilities for finishing. A number of branded drugs go off patent in 2012, including Pfizer's Lipitor and Eli Lilly's Zyprexa, which could have a negative impact on the industry. However, several multinational companies have been moving into the biologic sector in preparation for the loss of profit from these blockbuster drugs. While the multinational presence is very strong, Ireland has very few domestic producers. In September 2011, Alkermes completed its merger with Elan Drug Technologies (EDT) to form a new company, Alkermes Plc., which is headquartered in Dublin. In September 2011, Pfizer announced it was to invest US$200.0 million at its Grange Castle site, to add two processing suites and to expand current production and product testing capabilities. In September 2011, MSD opened its new R&D centre at its Ballydine site, creating 70 new jobs. Previously, in June 2011, MSD opened two new facilities at the site in Brinny. Complete report @
