I've seen this type of data for the U.S., but not for the global
industry.  Are you interested in having the US-only data as an answer
to your question?

Request for Question Clarification by pafalafa-ga on 30 Jun 2003 12:57 PDT
Actually, I've located some data for the US, Europe and Canada...interested?

Clarification of Question by shibl-ga on 30 Jun 2003 13:41 PDT
US, Europe and Canada is OK if no world data seems to be available.

Hello shibl-ga,

Thanks for asking a challenging question.

According to an in-depth report on the biotechnology industry by
Burrill & Co., which is summarized in considerable detail at:

the figures for the biotech industry for 2001 (or, for 2002 if the
data has a * next to it) are as follows:


Sales/Revenue.....$42.6*....... 7.5......1.0 billion $

Annual R&D........$13.5*........4.2......0.474 billion $

No. of companies..1,457........1,879.......474

No. of employees...157..........61.1........7.0 thousand

There is also a considerable amount of additional statistical details
on the biotech industry in the U.S. at this site of the Biotechnology
Industry Organization:

The site includes statistics on patents granted, number of drugs
approved, regional breakouts, and basic financial data.

Because BIO uses different data protocols, the figures aren't exactly
comparable to the Burrill & Co. data.  Nonetheless, I thought they
would be of interest to you.

I hope this data fully meets your needs.  If anything here requires
additional explanation or elaboration, just let me know through a
Request for Clarification, and I'll be happy to assist you further.
