In 2001, worldwide revenue for the pharmaceutical market was around $390.2 billion U.S. dollars. Ten years later, this figure stood at nearly one trillion U.S. dollars. In 2014, the market surpassed one trillion and hit $1057.2 trillion. This growth is expected to continue, making pharmaceuticals one of the fastest growing, largest, and most lucrative industries in the world. With so much growth and need, it’s not surprising that most positions in this field command a sizable piece of the pie, with science, engineering, research and development, pharmacy, and management leading the pack. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), people working in these fields rarely earn less than $100,000 annually (average), with managers and top executives averaging $156,590 and $163,210 per year, respectively.
