The Top Five Global Pharmaceutical Companies: Performance, Strategies and Competitive Analysis

DUBLIN, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Top Five Global Pharmaceutical Companies: Performance, Strategies and Competitive Analysis" report to their offering.


The fragmented market has observed some changes in the competitive landscape during the last five years. The top players are expanding their footprints in the emerging markets of China, India, Brazil, Latin America, and Eastern Europe. They are strengthening their technological and R&D structure by targeted merger and acquisition activities to help develop and market innovative drugs.

This report briefly discusses the subject companies, their geographic footprints, financial metrics, market performance, marketing and corporate strategies, and provides SWOT analysis of each. The report indicates that increased regulation of the pharmaceutical industry is expected to increase the industry's cost structure and reduce revenue as getting drugs to market becomes a longer and more expensive process. Regulatory approval for the introduction of biogenerics/biosimilars, generic versions of biologic drugs, increases the threat of uncertainty to the pharmaceutical market.

This report projects the major drivers of the industry. Growth in sectors such as health awareness among populations, R&D expenditures, sales of prescribed medicine and demand for generic medicines are expect to continue to provide huge demand for medicines. Various governments' increased spending in infectious and chronic degenerative diseases as well as anti-diabetes and cardiovascular drugs has driven the growth in sales of the pharmaceutical industry.

The report gives an overview of the top five global pharmaceutical companies:

- GlaxoSmithKline Plc
- Merck & Co., Inc.
- Novartis AG
- Pfizer, Inc.
- Sanofi-Aventis
