A marketing analysis of the pharmaceutical market for drugs - derivatives of 9,10-anthraquinone was carried out. It is shown that in the Ukrainian market, the vast majority of the assortment of these drugs is formed by foreign-made drugs, the leaders of which are the manufacturing countries Austria, Italy, Germany and India. It has been determi ned that the majority of anthraquinone drugs are represented by agents for the treatment of diseases of various types of cancer and strengthening of the intestinal reticulum. It has been established that «Sinbias Pharma» LLC is engaged in the production of four anticancer substances in Ukraine. For preparations based on anthraquinone-containing medicinal herbal raw materials, domestic manufacturers are PJSC «Liktravy» and PJSC Pharmaceutical Factory «Viola», and the producers of senna glycosides are JSC «Lubnypharm», «Ternopharm» LLC and Pharmaceutical company «Zdorovye». Injection solutions, lyophilisates, tablets and hard capsules are the main dosage forms of drugs - derivatives of 9,10-anthraquinone
