2014-03-13 15:23:01 - The Pharmaceutical Market: Uganda - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
While geographic diversification and investment into the pharmaceutical and healthcare sector of emerging economies such as Uganda may be a favourable strategy for any multinational pharmaceutical company - it is vital that a company recognises both the rewards and the risks present in a market. With regards to assessing risks in the Ugandan healthcare sector, we have identified industry specific dangers (such as low per-capita spending and poor access to healthcare facilities) and those emanating from the state´s political/economic profile (such as high inflation) that call into question the likelihood of anticipated returns being realised over the assessed time period.
Headline Expenditure Projections
Pharmaceuticals: UGX676bn (US$268mn) in 2011 to UGX794bn (US$322mn) in 2012; +14.8% growth in local currency terms and +17.3% in
US dollar terms.
Healthcare: UGX3,942bn (US$1.56bn) in 2011 to UGX4,519bn (US$1.83bn) in 2012; 14.6% growth in local currency terms and 17.1% in US dollar terms.
In BMI´s Q1 13 BERs, Uganda is ranked 24th in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. While factors such as population growth and increasing healthcare needs will create a growing demand for pharmaceuticals, we note that a sizeable counterfeiting industry, poor healthcare funding, corruption, regulatory environment deficiencies and a number of other issues will conspire to keep Uganda in a similarly low position in the MEA matrix over the coming months.
