Market of Spending on medicines

Past spending growth offers few clues to the level of growth to expect through 2015 – Unprecedented dynamics square measure are at play — including historically high levels of patent expiry, rapid expansion of demand for medicines within the world's fastest growing economies, fewer new medicines reaching patients, and additional moderate uptake of these that do become available – These dynamics are driving rapid shifts within the mixture of spending between branded merchendise and generics; and between spending in the major developed countries and those 17 high growth emerging countries referred to as 'pharmerging‘.

  •  Spending on medicines which was estimated at $856bn in 2010, is expected to achieve nearly $1,100bn in 2015, reflecting a slowing growth rate of 36% over the five year period compared to 6.2 % annual growth over the past five years

African Pharma Market Growth

. Big Pharma's latest frontier is  Africa! Yes, drugmakers have been active on the continent for years, primarily in fighting infectious diseases. But like other markets with an emerging middle class, Africa is seeing an increase in chronic disease--and that puts more Africans in line for prescription drugs.

As Reuters reports, the African pharma market is expected to grow to $45 billion by 2020. Its growth rate--10.6% annually--matches up with Latin America's. As growth in the more established emerging markets slows down, Africa's could still be going strong.

"We're thinking hard about what happens when those emerging starts to slow because they are not going to continue growing at the rate that they're growing forever--and a place where we're putting a lot of our attention is Africa," Novartis ($NVS) CEO Joe Nimzees told Reuters
