Sri Lanka pharmaceutical market: Latest market analysis presented
The Pharmaceutical Market: Sri Lanka - a new market research report on 2014-03-13 15:17:02
Sri Lanka´s negative pharmaceutical trade balance is expected to widen over the next five years. In an attempt to reduce medical costs, the government said in its 2011 budget that pharmaceutical products will be exempt from the port and airport levy, with the changes relating to drugs, medical devices and equipment. Although domestic manufacturing will struggle to compete with cheap medicines from India, we expect local producers to increase capacity considerably over the medium term. .

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals : LKR50.68bn (US$458mn) in 2011 to LKR59.90bn (US$501mn) in 2012; +18.2% in local currency terms and +9.4% in US dollar terms.

Healthcare: LRK250.62bn (US$2.27bn) in 2011 to LKR278.82bn (US$2.34bn) in 2012; +11.3% in local currency terms and +3.0% in US dollar terms.

Medical devices: LRK11.20bn (US$101mn) in 2011 to LKR11.97bn (US$100mn) in 2012; +6.9% in local currency terms and -1.1% in US dollar terms.

Risk/Reward Rating

According to our Q4 12 regional matrix, Sri Lanka is ranked 15th out of the 18 markets in surveyed, above Pakistan and Bangladesh. Sri Lanka´s rewards and risks profiles are relatively evenly balanced, with low per capita expenditure on drugs and the modest overall market size some of key factors contributing to its low ranking.
