India Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q3 2014 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Jun 27 2014

The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA)'s decision to list India as a Priority Foreign Country illustrates pharmaceutical companies' escalating dis contentment with the country due to a series of patent disrespect issues. We maintain that low government spending on healthcare is the root of the problem, as it limits patients' access to services . However, we do not expect the situation to improve in the near term, and the affordability of patented pharmaceuticals will remain an issue between the US and India.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: INR904.0bn (USD15.4bn) in 2013 to INR1,000.6bn (USD17.3bn) in 2014; +10.7% in local currency terms and +11.8% in US dollar terms. Forecast broadly in line with previous quarter.

Risk/Reward Rating

India's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Rating (RRR) score for Q314 is 53.0 out of the maximum 100, in our newly improved RRR system. The country scored above average for some indicators and sub-indicators including overall market expenditure, sector value growth, population growth. Nevertheless, it scored below regional average for most indicators under industry and country risks. Consequently with the moderate score, India is ranked tenth, behind New Zealand, out of the 19 key markets in Asia Pacific.

Key Trends And Developments
