The 200 Largest Drug / Pharmaceutical Companies by Market Cap 2017

Legal drugs are a big business, with over 200 companies each worth at least US$200 million, and 7 worth over $100 billion.  Medicines are one of the few types of products I find advertised about equally in the US and in Hong Kong (otherwise I think of the US as mostly advertising cars and consumer goods while Hong Kong advertises more educational and financial services).  Many pharma companies are defined by their unique intellectual property in specific drugs, or processes in making generic drugs, and this certainly is a sector where understanding how to value such intellectual property is an advantage.

Here is a reference list of 200 of the largest drug / pharmaceutical companies by market cap as of January 2017:
