Takeda's Businesses

Takeda is a research-based global company with its main focus on pharmaceuticals.

Ethical Drugs
Ethical drugs are Takeda's core business, constituting about 81.5% of total net sales. Our two research centers in Japan conduct basic and applied research to create new breakthrough drugs. Development operations in Japan, the U.S. and Europe then work to move these drugs swiftly through development so that better treatments can be delivered as early as possible to patients around the world.

Takeda has an international marketing network including Japan and 13 overseas bases in the U.S., Europe and Asia. From these bases, Takeda markets its original products such as the anti-prostatic cancer agent leuprolide acetate (marketed as Lupron Depot®, Enantone®, Prostap® and Leuplin®), the anti-peptic ulcer agent lansoprazole (marketed as Prevacid®, Ogast®, Takepron® and other names), the anti-hypertensive agent candesartan cilexetil (marketed as Blopress®, Kenzen® and Amias®) and the anti-diabetic agent pioglitazone hydrochloride (marketed as Actos®). Including sales through licensees, Takeda's pharmaceuticals are available in over 100 countries worldwide.

Our production network includes the Hikari, Osaka and Shonan plants in Japan, as well as Takeda Ireland Ltd., which was newly established in 1997 and manufactures drugs for the European and U.S. markets. In addition, Takeda has two production facilities in Asia.

Consumer Healthcare

In Japan, Takeda has also built a strong presence in the over-the-counter (OTC) drug market, in which we now hold the number-two domestic share. The increasing emphasis on self-medication among Japanese consumers should help drive further growth in this field. By taking the viewpoint of consumers, we provide products and services that are closely matched to consumer needs.

Our main brands in the Consumer Healthcare segment are well recognized among Japanese consumers and include Alinamin® (vitamin B1 derivative preparations, etc.), Benza® (cold remedies), Hicee® (vitamin C preparations).
