JNJ’s business segments

Johnson & Johnson operates three business segments:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Consumer
  • Medical Devices

The Pharmaceuticals segment is the largest revenue contributor for Johnson & Johnson, with contributions exceeding 45% of total revenues. The Pharmaceuticals segment is expected to report growth in revenues at constant exchange rates during 3Q17.

This growth takes into account the strong performance of Imbruvica, Stelara, Xarelto, Invega Sustenna, Xeplion, and Edurant. It is partly offset by the expected lower sales of hepatitis C products during 3Q17.

The Consumer segment is expected to report revenue growth at constant exchange rates during 3Q17. This growth is due to the expected growth considering the strong performance of three franchises: 

  • Wound Care
  • Beauty Products
  • Over-the-Counter

The Consumer segment’s growth is partially offset by lower sales in the following franchises:

  • Baby Care
  • Oral Care
  • Women’s Health

The Medical Devices Segment is expected to report growth in revenues at constant exchange rates during 3Q17. This growth would be due to the strong performance of advanced surgery, cardiovascular, vision care, and hips, knees, and trauma products. This growth would be partially offset by lower sales of diabetes products.

We’ll discuss the company’s key products later in this series.
