This report provides a sales data overview of the 2012 world pharmaceutical markets, using the Estimated Market Universe. US$ sales values and growth rates from 2008 to 2012 are displayed for all regions as well as for all IMS audited countries, allowing you to understand the performance of each country market and their evolution over the years.
To give you as complete a picture as possible, estimated sales through all distribution channels in all countries are shown (Market Estimates by Region), whether these channels are audited by IMS Health or not. These estimates are intended to include both prescription and most non-prescription products.
We provide these estimates to put into perspective the information contained in all other sections of IMS World Review Executive™, which is based on IMS Health audit information only.
For any country audited, the total market estimate is based on the audited figure, with allowances made for non-audited sectors of the market, based on information from IMS Health audits.
For non-audited markets we have used the technique of reverse evaluation of export statistics, export statistics of the major exporting countries are matched up with local import statistics. Retained local production is added in, to arrive at a total market estimate.
