Women's Health: Worldwide Prescription Drug Markets - 3rd Edition


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

During the last 25 years, there have been unprecedented advancements in the area of women’s health and there is widespread recognition of the importance of addressing conditions that overwhelmingly affect women. Likewise, pharmaceutical marketers have increasingly understood the potential that the women’s health market represents and the increasing clout female consumers are wielding in the prescription drug marketplace. Women’s Health: Worldwide Prescription Drug Markets is a comprehensive study of the pharmaceutical markets aimed at diseases and conditions that affect women.

Scope and Methodology

For this study, the worldwide prescription drug market for women’s health is discussed in total manufacturers’ revenues for the following product categories:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Cancer
  • Gynecological and Sexually Transmitted Diseases
  • Hormones
  • Osteoporosis
  • Urinary Disorders

The information and analysis presented in this report are based on an extensive survey of senior management in the prescription women’s health drug industry. Background information was obtained from a comprehensive search of published literature and reports obtained from various government, business, medical trade, and international journals. Key information from published literature was used to conduct interviews with over 62 industry executives and product managers to validate and obtain expert opinion on current and future trends in the women’s health industry. Interviews were also used to confirm and/or adjust market size and market share estimates, as well as in formulating market projections.

All market data are presented at the manufacturers’ level in current U.S dollars. The base year for data was 2002. Historical data are provided for each of the years 1997 through 2002, and forecast data are provided for each of the years 2003 through 2007. Historical, base year, and forecast data are provided for each market segment and subsegment. Market shares are provided for each market segment for the 2002 base year.


$36 Billion Women’s Health Prescription Drug Market to Double by 2008

New York, March 11, 2003 /PR Newswire — The worldwide market for prescription drugs for women’s health will nearly double by the year 2007, according to a new study released today by Kalorama Information. Manufacturers’ revenues for 2002 approached $36 billion, according to the study, and will be near $64 billion in the year 2007.

The study, Women’s Health: Worldwide Prescription Drug Markets, reveals that the market has been growing at nearly 17% over the past five years and predicts that growth will continue to be in the double digits for the foreseeable future. Growth will be supported by the aging of women around the world, particularly in the United States, and an increase in product demand spurred by a still-growing women’s health awareness movement should expand the total market significantly.

"The importance and potential in this market can be seen in the dynamism of the competitive landscape," notes Steven Heffner, acquisitions editor at Kalorama Information. "Pharmacia’s strong number-two position in women’s health certainly was a factor in Pfizer’s decision to move in, and generic companies are aggressively attacking the patent positions of top companies like number-one Merck. The opportunity is too large to ignore."

The study covers the products and markets for prescription drugs in all sectors of women’s health such as autoimmune diseases, cancer, gynecological infection and sexually transmitted disease, hormone-related indications (including menopause, contraception, and sexual dysfunction), osteoporosis, and urinary bladder disorders. The comprehensive report provides market size and growth projections, competitive market share, and epidemiologic and clinical trends for a wide range of individual conditions from breast cancer to yeast infection.
