According to statistics presented by The Association of the British
Pharmaceutical Industry, the UK is Europe's largest source of

"...An analysis of the world?s top 100 medicines reveals that, after
the USA, Britain?s pharmaceutical companies? market share is more than
all its European competitors combined. ..."

GlaxoSmithKline, a UK-based pharmaceutical company, is the second
largest such company in the world (behind the number 1, Pfizer, based
in the US).

Astrazeneca, another UK-based company, is number 6 on the list.  

Switzerland is the only other European country that also has two
listings (Novartis and Roche) on the Top Ten list.

The presence in the UK of two pharmacuetical giants is enough to vault
the UK to the top of the heap of drug producers in Europe.
