EvaluatePharma 2018 Outlook: Novartis #1 and Pfizer Sole USA Co in Top 5

LONDON, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

EvaluatePharma Ltd, a leading source for life science sector analysis and the first to supply reliable consensus forecasts of global drug sales, revealed today that Novartis is expected to take the top spot amongst the world's pharmaceuticals manufacturers, in terms of prescription (Rx) drug sales, starting in 2014 and remains at the top through 2018. Only one US-based drug maker, Pfizer, will rank among the top five, with Sanofi, GlaxoSmithKline and Roche also topping the table. Further down the league table sizeable shifts both up and down the rankings are forecast, as pipeline successes and failures drive the future fortunes of the world's biggest pharma companies (see table).
