Health care Statistics:

Health care is one of the notable, rapidly growing industries globally. It includes various segments such as medical devices, pharmaceuticals, information technology, and services, all of which are developing at a fast pace. Today, the health care industry is under immense pressure to deliver high-quality medical care owing to an increasing demand for better facilities and services from patients around the world. But it is also rife with the omnipresent threat of increasingly expensive delivery of quality services. Although constant efforts are being taken by health care providers to reduce costs by eliminating waste and improving their operations, often the chief aspect of supply chain, which is responsible for an estimated one-third of all the operating costs, is missed out. The health care supply chain involves three main groups: producers (manufacturing companies), purchasers (wholesalers and distributors), and providers (hospitals, pharmacies, and clinics).

The global hospital pharmaceuticals market is forecasted to exhibit a moderate CAGR of 3.9% between 2015 and 2023. Nevertheless, the increasing prevalence of chronic ailments worldwide, coupled with increasing healthcare spending is expected to keep the demand for hospital pharmaceuticals high in the near future. As per Transparency Market Research, the market stood at US$197.3 billion in 2014 and is expected to reach US$280.3 billion by the end of 2023. Emerging economies in Asia Pacific and Rest of the World are currently exhibiting highest demand for hospital pharmaceuticals.

As per reports from the World Health Organization (WHO), annual cases of cancer globally are expected to reach 22 million by 2030. This combined with the rising incidence of parasitic infections will boost demand for anti-parasitic drugs, thus driving the global hospital pharmaceuticals market in the forthcoming years.


 Fig 2: Health care Statistics

The global pharmacy market reached nearly $3.2 billion in 2014. This market is expected to grow to nearly $3.8 billion in 2017 and $4.9 billion in 2020 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.8% over the five-year period, 2014 to 2020. Clinical pharmacy has a rich history of advancing practice through innovation. These innovations helped to mold clinical pharmacy into a patient-centered discipline recognized for its contributions to improving medication therapy outcomes. The next few years will see spending on drugs in established markets in North America, Europe and Japan grow by just 1-4% annually.

R&D Spending in the Pharmaceutical Industry

The pharmaceutical industry's lifeblood is R&D. The success of major drug companies is almost wholly dependent upon the discovery and development of new medicines and their allocation of capital expenditures reflect that fact. On average, pharmaceutical companies dedicate approximately 18% of their budget to R&D, and some companies within the industry spend substantially more than that.

As of 2013, many of the largest pharmaceutical firms spend nearly 20% on R&D. Of the 20 largest R&D spending industrial companies in the world, pharmaceutical companies make up nearly half the list. Eli Lilly is currently spending roughly 23% on R&D. Biogen is right behind, at approximately 22%. Both Roche and Merck are spending just under 20%. Pfizer and AstraZeneca are closer to the 15% level, along with GlaxoSmithKline. Abbott Laboratories is on the lower end of the spectrum, dedicating about 12% of revenues to R&D spending. Many smaller pharma companies have lower revenue totals to work with, so they spend significantly higher percentages of their budget on R&D – up to 50% for some firms.

The high level of R&D expenditures in the pharmaceutical industry is easy to understand given the cost of developing a new drug and bringing it to market. The average R&D to marketplace cost for a new medicine is nearly $4 billion, and can sometimes exceed $10 billion.
