2014-03-13 15:09:02 - The Pharmaceutical Market: Oman - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Oman´s commendable public healthcare system and high-class tertiary and quaternary care hospitals will increase the uptake of medical tourism by GCC citizens. The Omani pharmaceutical market will continue to remain heavily reliant on imports due to the costly need to source raw ingredients for local manufacturing and lack of R&D backing. However, despite t he strict drug pricing system, we are likely to see more multinational companies penetrating the market and expanding volume sales, by addressing the increasing burden of non-communicable diseases in the country.
