Worldwide Market for Prescription Dermatological Drugs

30 Nov 2010 • by Natalie Aster

New York – The pharmaceutical industry is facing a difficult environment in general, due to tougher regulations for gaining approvals for mainstream products, economic issues, and a dwindling pipeline of new products. Reliance on blockbuster drugs is all but over, causing a shift of focus for many drug research and development entities. By focusing on cosmetic medications, many manufacturers are realizing there is less scrutiny from the FDA and a growing need in niche markets such as dermatology. This transition will play a role in the future development of the dermatological industry over the forecast period.
