Market figures are based on revenues at the manufacturers’ level and are projected at 2014 dollar value. Inflation is not computed into the projection figures. Trends are assessed based on projected sales for existing products, new product introductions, expanded indications for existing products, and projected changes in the prevalence, diagnosis, and scripting rates for certain diseases.
Included in this report are forecasts by product, product category and by company from 2014 through 2019. The study is arranged to offer an overview of the biologics market accompanied by product, company, geography and mechanism of action with forecasts broken down and covered by geographic region or country. The revenues stated in the tables represent only actual sales of biologic drug products. They do not contain revenues from reagents, special administration equipment/devices, or other services associated with the use of the drug. Virtually the entire globe is covered to include prevalence data for each disease subsegment.
Excluded from this report are over-the-counter (OTC) medications and other consumables that do not require a physician’s prescription.
Sales figures are reported in U.S. dollars and in each case reflect currency fluctuations within the performance of revenue change. Revenue figures do not account for variation in local currencies.
All market share data presented are on a global basis unless specifically noted.
