REPORT HIGHLIGHTS

  • In 2005, the herbal supplements market for products covered in this report was only 0.47% of the prescription market for drugs to treat these conditions.

  • The global market for herbal supplements covered in this report was $5.5 billion in 2005 and $5.6 billion by the end of 2006. Growing at an average annual growth rate (AAGR) of 1.7%, this market sector will cross just over $6.1 billion by 2011.
  • The global market for prescription drugs was worth more than $114 billion in 2005 and almost $120 billion in 2006. At an AAGR of 4.6%, this market will grow to reach almost $150 billion by 2011.
