What We Do

At Takeda, we put the patient at the center of everything we do as we strive towards better health for people worldwide through leading innovation in medicine. At the heart of that mission is our world-class research and development engine, complemented by external partnerships, collaborations and acquisitions. By translating science into life-changing medicines, we aim to improve the lives of patients around the globe.

Our business is strong, and poised for growth. Takeda is dominant in mature markets, which remain solid cornerstones of our business: Japan, the U.S. and Europe. In emerging markets, such as Brazil, Russia and China, Takeda ranks among the fastest growing multinational pharmaceutical companies. Our near-term growth will be driven by our focus in three therapeutic areas: Gastroenterology, Oncology, and Value brands, which include off-patent and OTC products in almost 40 countries within the emerging markets.
