Figure 1 displays the sales profiles of the top ten products in atrial fibrillation and the global value. The majority of the products shown maintain constant sales or slowly increase or decrease over the eight years. Xarelto, however, is predicted to increase at a much higher rate. This growth gives way to a large global growth.

Figure 2 shows the global total growth of the products. This growth has been compared to the growth of Xarelto. Figure 2 shows that the majority of growth in product sales (98.89%) for atrial fibrillation is from Xarelto. However, other products are increasing and decreasing during this period.
