2014-03-10 23:14:03 - The Pharmaceutical Market: Saudi Arabia - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Saudi Arabia´ s transition to an increasingly privatised and comprehensive healthcare system will drive the demand for both patented and generic drugs . The country is investing heavily in healthcare infrastructure and we expect this will be borne out in double-digit growth forecasts across our three headline indicators.
Headline Expenditure Projections
Pharmaceuticals: SAR16.70bn (US$4.46bn) in 2011 to SAR18.95bn (US$5.06bn) in 2012; +13.5% in local currency and US dollar terms. Forecast broadly unchanged from Q3 12.
Healthcare: SAR78.63bn (US$21.00bn) in 2011 to SAR91.20bn (US$24.35bn) in 2012; +16.0% in local currency and US dollar terms. Forecast broadly unchanged from Q3 12.
Medical devices: SAR5.54bn (US$1.48bn) in 2011 to SAR6.53bn (US$1.74bn) in 2012; +17.8% in local currency and US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from Q3 12.
Arabia´s composite score remained steady in Q4 12 at 55.6. This places the country to firth place out of the 30 markets in the region. Its score is propped up by the country´s wealth and a sizeable population (exceeding 28mn in 2011). Furthermore, its forecast growth rate is high due to favourable public and private healthcare investments. The government is also in the process of creating more public-private health partnerships and encouraging private health insurance uptake, which should provide momentum for drug sales.
