The pharmaceuticals & health market worldwide 

Médicament injectable

The world market in medicines was worth more than $1.046 trillion in 2018. This strong market growth (up 5% on 2017) can be put down in particular to the latest scientific innovations, as well as to the ageing of the world's population, to the extent that companies are continuing to invest and research into new levers of growth, such as the latest cutting-edge injectable medicines.

The biotech revolution, the development of generic medicines and the reinforcement of international patent regulations have generated major upheavals in the sector in the past 30 years. These developments have led to a transformation in the production model.
