2014-03-13 15:24:03 - The Pharmaceutical Market: United Arab Emirates - a new market research report on

The United Arab Emirates´ healthcare and pharmaceutical markets continue to be the strongest in the region. Its growth prospects are strong - we forecast high single-digit CAGRs over the course of our 10- year forecast period. Several factors are driving growth: incomes are high, as is the UAE ´ s expatriate population. These elements combine to increase private healthcare expenditure and demand for innovative drugs. Local drug production facilities are also gaining strength, with domestic player Julphar opening a new factory, and multinational drug firms are also entering the market. In addition, there are plans for several new hospital and healthcare facilities, which will boost future demand for pharmaceuticals. The UAE ´ s appeal as a medical tourism destination is



another driver of growth. W e therefore remain optimistic about the growth potential of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ´s pharmaceutical and healthcare markets.
