Abstract: Comparative analysis of the industrial concentration and turnover of the pharmaceutical industry in Brazil for the segments of mark and generic drugs - This paper analyzes the evolution of brand-name and generic drugs structure in Brazil since 1997. After the introduction of generic drugs it was not verified a significant decrease in the concentration of Brazilian pharmaceutical industry. The process of mergers and acquisitions in the 90?s enhanced the process of concentration in the international market. However, a non-expressive turnover can be demonstrated in both pharmaceutical and generic markets. At the same time, the entrance of the generic industry in Brazil explains the invigoration of the national industry. The mergers and acquisitions process in the pharmaceutical industry is quite intense in Europe and in the USA, although in Brazil it is still not significant.
