2012-10-07 00:16:07 - New Pharmaceuticals research report from IBISWorld is now available from Fast Market Research
Getting generic: The expiration of brand-name patents will open the door for growth
Drug, Cosmetic & Toiletry Wholesaling in the US
Prescription for success
Wholesalers of drugs, cosmetics and toiletries emerged from the recession largely unscathed, bolstered by demand for pharmaceutical products. With the US population aging rapidly, the need for prescription and over-the-counter drugs increased. As patents for major drugs expire, demand for generic medications will soar, supporting industry profitability. Meanwhile, the recently passed healthcare reform law will boost demand even further as more Americans will have access to doctors.
Drug, cosmetic and toiletry wholesalers primarily distribute medicines intended to diagnose, treat or prevent diseases; preparations designed to modify or improve the appearance of physical features; and articles used in personal grooming
or dressing. Industry operators take ownership of the goods to be distributed. The industry does not include manufacturers that sell medicines, equipment and supplies directly to hospitals or doctors' offices.
