"Germany Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q4 2015" now available at Fast Market Research

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 11 2015

As the German economy observes signs of a tentative long-term rebalancing in which private consumption will play a more significant role in economic growth, recent improvements in high frequency indicators have lead us to an upward revision of the pharmaceutical market growth forecast for 2015. However, the pharmaceutical market growth potential will continue to suffer significant downward pressure due to a challenging reimbursement and pricing environment, setting a pattern of marginal market expansion over the next few years.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: EUR44.31bn (USD59.38bn) in 2014 to EUR44.49bn (USD48.94bn) in 2015; 0.4% in local currency terms and -17.6% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised upwards from last quarter.

Healthcare: EUR317.55bn (USD425.51bn) in 2014 to EUR326.18bn (USD358.80bn) in 2015; +2.7% in local currency terms and -15.7% in US dollar terms. Forecast broadly in line with last quarter.

Risk/Reward Index

In Q415 Germany retains a RRI score of 69.2 out of 100 after a downward revision in H115. Germany remains ranked as the fourth most attractive market to pharmaceutical investors out of 15 markets in the Western Europe region in our RRI matrix. While high market expenditure indices and risks scores are illustrative of the country's relative attractiveness and favourable operating environment, potential industry rewards are capped by increasingly burdensome reimbursement and pricing regulation.
