Eurozone recovery and an improving domestic economic outlook will provide a boost to healthcare expenditure in Slovakia in the short - term. Over the longer term, we expect healthcare spending to accelerate given Slovakia's ageing population and burden of chronic diseases. With public finances on firmer footing and a centre-left government promising more generous social spending, multinational drugmakers and medical device companies can expect to see growth in revenues from Slovakia.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: EUR1.85bn (USD2.46bn) in 2014 to EUR1.91bn (USD2.30bn) in 2015; +3.5% in local currency terms and -6.6% in US dollar terms.
Healthcare: EUR6.13bn (USD8.15bn) in 2014 to EUR6.37bn (USD7.64bn) in 2015; 3.9% in local currency terms and -6.2% in US dollar terms.

Slovakia's Risk Index score indicates that the country has one of the best business environments in the Central and Eastern European region, although its ranking is moderated by its less-than-impressive Rewards score. Consequently, Slovakia has a Risk/Reward Index score of 56.4 out of 100, making it now the third-most attractive pharmaceutical market in Central and Eastern Europe.

Key Trends And Developments

The European Commission has recommended Slovakia streamline its public procurement process in the healthcare sector in order to strengthen competition and improve overall control. The recommendations are part of a so-called 'European Semester' under which the European Commission assesses the reform programmes of each member state. The commission also suggested Slovakia increase its investment in infrastructure and simplify the administrative procedures to obtain building permits. The recommendations are focused on areas considered essential from a macroeconomic point of view and the country should take action to address these recommendations in the next 12-18 months.
