The CPhI Worldwide 2002 Conference Preview - Where Science Comes First

This is where the CPhI conference comes in. The two-day programme will include high profile speakers presenting papers with in-depth scientific information on pharmaceutical techniques. The best way to measure the success of an exhibition such as CPhI Worldwide is to look at the actual number of attendees. Last year's combined event hosted 8,703 individual visitors, from over 110 countries around the world. Together with the exhibitors, the CPhI event in 2001 attracted almost 18,000 industry professionals.

When calculated as a percentage of total health spending, France spends twice as much as the US does on medicine. Total turnover for pharmaceutical products amounted to US$20 billion in 1996 (approximately US$18 billion), about a quarter of which was exported.

The French pharmaceutical industry comprises 334 pharmaceutical companies in a very fragmented market. The top 20 companies in France controlled just 53 per cent of the domestic market in 1996.

In 1996, France hosted the second highest number of biotech companies in Europe and, this year, hosts the third highest (1).
