2014-03-10 23:18:01 - The Pharmaceutical Market: Poland - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The Polish pharmaceutical market contracted severely in 2012, owing to harsh pricing measures and strict margins imposed on wholesalers, pharmaceutical makers and retailers. Moreover, over the course of the year, the burden of pharmaceutical spending has shifted towards the Polish consumer , as the harsher reimbursement regime has caused private contributions to prescription payments rise. We forecast a return to growth in 2013, driven by private consu mption as the Polish government entrenches cuts to drug expenditure.
We expect strong growth in the mediu m to long term as Poland´s economy diversifies and aligns with developed countries. The growth of private medical companies is a positive development in the Polish healthcare market, and the possible introduction of voluntary health insurance could
lead to a greater role for the private sector in healthcare provision.
