If the rate of growth for specialty-drug spending were to continue at 20% a year, it would account for more than 25% of all outpatient pharmacy spending by 2008, as reported in the CuraScript's Specialty Pharmacy Management Guide and Trend Report. The estimated size of the specialty pharmacies market grew to approximately $40 billion in 2005, with projections reaching nearly $75 billion in 2008.
