The (new) top 10 pharma companies by 2017 revenue
Takeda CEO Christophe Weber will now be able to boast about his elevation into the top 10 global pharma companies, if you base the count on revenue.
I cobbled together the latest set of figures for fiscal 2017 to show you where the Takeda/Shire operation fits in to the big picture. I’ll note that while J&J is way out front, it’s a healthcare/pharma conglomerate with a wide range of products in its portfolio. And I backed out crop sciences revenue from Bayer to make this more about biopharma.
Finally, I added Gilead as number 11 to provide some added context on Takeda/Shire.
