The turnover of pharmaceuticals in 2021 is almost unchanged compared with the same period last year, with a rise of just DKK 18 million.

The turnover of pharmaceuticals in the first half-year of 2021 was DKK 4.09 billion, which is only 0.4% more than for the same period last year. There is a great difference between the two quarters in the half-year.

In the first quarter, we saw a decrease of around 5%, whereas there was a corresponding rise of 5% in the second quarter. Overall, therefore, the figures remain largely unchanged.
