GlobalData Reports Sales for Big Pharma Companies Have Increased Due to COVID-19

July 1, 2020

GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company, has found that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to temporarily increased drug sales for big bio/pharma companies in the first quarter (Q1) of 2020. This increase was due to people stockpiling in preparation for limited medical access during the lockdown.

GlobalData’s Pharma Intelligence Center Drug Sales and Forecast Database reveals that global sales in Q1 2020 for companies that were not developing a COVID-19 drug saw an 8% increase in sales when compared to the archived global sales forecast for the same time period. In contrast, companies that were developing a COVID-19 drug only saw a 3% increase.
