Risk/Reward Index

Qatar's risks are particularly low in comparison with the rest of the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region, although its potential rewards are dampened by the small market size. Nevertheless, Qatar's high level of urbanisation, rapid population growth and rising prevalence of chronic lifestyle diseases creates an environment in which there is strong potential for market growth. In BMI's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index for the MEA matrix in Q415, Qatar has retained its position in the MEA matrix of fourth place, with the country's score this remaining at 55.5 out of 100.
