Taiwan pharmaceutical market: New market research published
The Pharmaceutical Market: Taiwan - a new market research report on 2014-03-10 23:04:01
We continue to view Taiwan as a challenging market for multinationals, mostly on account of the difficult pricing and reimbursement environment, which is due to undergo further changes. Specifically, as part of the Second Generation National Health Insurance (NHI) programme, which becomes effective in 2013, a new reimbursement system is expected to be rolled out in Taiwan. The American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei (AmCham), in its latest White Paper published in 2012, wrote that it hoped that the new system - known as the Drug Reimbursement Item and Payment Scheme (DRIPS) - will not become so complicated as to cause delays in patient access to innovative new drugs.

Pharmaceuticals: TWD135.10bn (US$4.59bn) in 2011 to TWD140.44bn (US$4.71bn) in 2012; +4.2% in local currency terms and +2.6% in US dollar terms. US dollar f orecast back in the positive territory, unlike in Q412, on account of exchange rate fluctuations.
