An understanding of the market for anesthesia could be worthwhile to any pharmaceutical marketer and any equity company investing or consulting in this area. Anesthesia markets are in one sense simple: growth in these drugs are correlated to prevalence and incidence in disease, and the resulting increase in procedure volumes. But as this market continues to grow, increased competition is steadily escalating in the United States and Europe, which is encouraging more participation in other areas of the world. New products in development may change the market landscape dramatically.
