Netherlands Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q1 2015 - New Market Study Published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Mon Dec 08 2014

Despite the Dutch economy expanding during the second quarter of 2014 at a time were the broader Eurozone have slowed, we believe the Netherlands ' patented and generic drugmakers face difficult challenges over the coming years. The government will likely remain committed to reduce drug prices as it tries to cope with the healthcare demands of a growing aging population. This coupled with a patent cliff along with health insurers looking to include cheaper generic medicines into their policies, keeps our outlook for the market subdued.

Headline Expenditure Projections

* Pharmaceuticals: EUR6.09bn (USD8.04bn) in 2013 to EUR5.92bn (USD7.93bn) in 2014; -2.8% in local currency terms and -1.3% in US dollar terms.
* Healthcare: EUR70.37bn (USD92.89bn) in 2013 to EUR71.34bn (USD95.59bn) in 2014; 1.4% in local currency terms and 2.9% in US dollar terms.

Risk/Reward Index

The Netherlands continues to rank in the lower half of BMI's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Indices (RRIs) for the 15 key Western European markets, remaining 12th for Q115. The country fell from eighth in Q413. At 65.1, its overall RRI score remains slightly below the regional average of 68. This was the result of the rise of Finland and the incorporation of Denmark in our ratings system, both of which overtook the Netherlands. While the country offers drugmakers a relatively low-risk operating environment, poor market prospects - due to pressures on pricing and reimbursement and the market's maturity - will continue to weigh down its overall standing.
