France Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q4 2015 - New Report Available

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Wed Sep 23 2015

The French economy's moderate growth acceleration will continue to pose upside risks to our pharmaceuticals and healthcare forecasts over a multi-quarter horizon. However, although gradually recovering, the pharmaceutical market is expected to remain in negative growth territory in 2015 and 2016 before resuming expansion and ultimately picking up by the end of our forecast period. While the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sector long-term growth fundamentals bode favourably to drugmakers operating in the country, the slow pace of reforms to the labour market will ensure minimal competitiveness gains in France's operating environment, which will continue to translate in subdued rates of investment, including in the pharmaceutical sector .

Risk/Reward Index

In Q415 we have revised downwards France RRI score to 70.5 from 71.7 in the last quarter, out of a maximum 100 points. France remains ranked as the third most attractive market to pharmaceutical investors out of 15 markets in Western Europe. The downward revision was due to lower drug spending per capita indices. France's score is boosted by the large multi-billion dollar drug market (market expenditure score of 16.0 out of 20), and large pensionable population (pensionable population score of 8.0 out of 8), but dragged down by poor market expansion (sector value growth score of 0.0 out of 12).
