Do you know who the leading pharmaceutical companies are worldwide? A new list has revealed the world’s top 25

The performance highlights of the Top 25 publicly traded global Pharma companies for the year 2017 have been confirmed in the latest research from GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company. The completed analysis reveals a number of interesting insights.

The pharma sector’s 2017 versus 2016 year-on-year performance created a mixed picture, Global Data said, with only half of the Top 25 companies’ market cap achieving double digit growth and five players, Merck US, Celgene, GlaxoSmithKline, Allergan and Shire seeing their market cap fall.

However, based on market cap J&J, Roche and Pfizer retained their market position among the top three players.
