NEW YORK, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The US Pharmaceutical Market 2009-2024

What will happen next in the world's largest pharma market? Our new market study explains, letting you know the implications of change.

The United States has by far the world's largest pharmaceutical market. In the twelve months to Q2 2009, the US accounted for 41% of world pharmaceutical sales. Its vast economy, high standard of living, minimal pricing controls and strong intellectual property rights help make it the world's most dominant pharma market. The US also has one of the most stringent regulatory environments in the world. This brand new report - US Pharmaceutical Market 2009-2024 - will provide you with extensive information about the US pharma market and industry to benefit your work. This report presents the information you really need to know, to assess this market in light of impending changes.

US Pharmaceutical Market 2009-2024 gives you current information and analyses you need to understand the following aspects of the US pharmaceuticals market, in particular:

  • The regulatory environment
  • The healthcare distribution system
  • The prevalence and relevance of the insurance industry
  • The pricing system for pharmaceuticals
  • Government-run Medicare and Medicaid systems
  • Direct-to-consumer advertising
  • The legal and regulatory status of generics.

The US has been the world's most prominent pharma market for a long time, but what will happen next? Can the market sustain growth and, if so, by how much? What will happen when Lipitor's patent expires? Will the US market for cardiovascular treatments grow or shrink? What about the US market for cancer treatments? This report also includes interviews with three experts - Dr May Mak, Dr Donald Light and Mr Charlie Mayr - to provide additional insight into current market factors, looking ahead.

US healthcare reforms - impact on the market

The US is on the verge of reforming its healthcare system. Under most schemes, the reforms will not take full effect until 2013. However, the prospect of reform could have a psychological impact even before then. This market study discusses important US healthcare issues, and takes potential reforms into account in its forecasts. How would wider insurance coverage affect prescription drug sales? Will governmental price negotiations be approved? If governmental negotiation is approved, how would that affect sales revenues?

This report addresses these and other relevant healthcare questions, and gives you a tool to help predict the impact of expected changes in US healthcare policy. We believe that significant US healthcare reform will happen from 2010. This report tells you what the changes could mean for pharma companies serving the US, both domestic and foreign.

Comprehensive analysis of the United States' pharma sector

In particular, US Pharmaceutical Market 2009-2024 contains detailed sales forecasts and supporting information. The sections, data tables and figures include:

  • Forecasts and other analyses for the total US pharma market
  • Forecasts and other analyses for individual treatment categories, including mental health treatments, cardiovascular treatments, antiulcerants, cancer treatments, anti-epileptics, narcotics, HIV antivirals, human insulins and analogues

  • Forecasts and other analyses for the generics market (which the author believes will eventually include biosimilars)
  • SWOT tables outlining the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the current and future US pharmaceutical market.

This new report examines that sector critically, through a comprehensive review of information sources, both primary and secondary.
