Spain Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q1 2016 - New Study Released

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Feb 19 2016

We maintain our subdued outlook for the Spanish pharmaceutical market. Price caps on originator medicines have negatively impacted the country's generic drug sector, which lags behind other European markets. However, new measures to improve access to generic and biosimilar medicines will lead to greater opportunities for generic drugmakers operating in the country.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: EUR24.71bn (USD33.11bn) in 2014 to EUR25.18bn (USD27.70bn) in 2015; +1.9% in local currency terms and -16.3% in US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from last quarter.
Healthcare: EUR90.72bn (USD121.56bn) in 2014 to EUR91.69bn (USD100.86bn) in 2015; +1.1% in local currency terms and -17.0% in US dollar terms. Forecast in line with last quarter.
