Gross Value Added in the UK vs the European “Big 5”

Comparing Gross Value Added (GVA) per worker in the pharmaceutical industry across the EU “Big 5” countries (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain), the UK retains the highest GVA per worker over the period 2012-2014. GVA per pharmaceutical worker in the UK grew to reach €191,000 per worker. Although not at the previous values seen in 2008, it is a welcome increase for the British pharmaceutical industry.
