Report Scope

This report is an analytical business tool whose primary purpose is to describe the botanical drug industry with the overall plant-derived drug industry as a backdrop and the global market for these drugs going forward.

For the purposes of this report, botanicals are those drugs that are FDA-approved under the botanical drug pathway, while plant-derived drugs are both botanicals as well as other approved drugs that contain a mixture of natural plant-derived and synthetic or semisynthetic substances.

The study’s main focus is on legal, prescription-required therapeutic medicines sold in the open market.  The study does not specifically cover herbals generally sold as dietary supplements (i.e., to promote overall “wellness” rather than to address a specific medical condition or symptoms).  While there is a substantial market for these products, the medical value of many of these substances has not been demonstrated conclusively.

The study also does not cover the following:

  • Underground or illicit drugs.
  • Home remedies.
  • Tribal medicines.
  • Drugs derived from Archaea, bacteria and fungi (molds and yeasts).
  • Non-medicinal plant substances such as laxative cellulose and pectin fiber.
  • Intravenously delivered nutrients of plant origin, such as dextrose.
  • Plant-derived substances serving as pharmaceutical excipients, such as starch, methylcellulose, guar gum, vegetable oils, fatty acids, cocoa butter and candelilla wax.
  • Plant substances serving in cosmetics, toiletries and personal care products.
  • Microbial fermentation products, even those made with culture media incorporating corn steep liquor, starch or other plant-derived nutrients.
  • Marine life.

The format of the study is organized around the following topics:

  • Major types and applications of botanical drugs with plant-derived drugs as their backdrop.
  • Industry structure.
  • Market size and segmentation, including the breakdown of sales by therapeutic area and geographic area.
  • Market drivers.
  • Market projections through 2017.
  • Competition.
  • Observations and conclusions regarding the future of the botanical and plant-derived drug industry.
