The Algerian pharmaceutical market will remain attractive to multinational drugmakers , despite the slow pace of improvements in the regulatory and market access environment. Key market drivers such as growing demand for healthcare , rising chronic disease burden and sustained foreign investment in domestic drug manufacturing will continue to translate in strong market growth rates over the forecast period. Despite short-term economic and fiscal challenges, developing Algeria's pharmaceutical industry will remain a policy priority and therefore benefit from government incentives . This will remain in line with the broader interest by foreign drugmakers to sustain the country ' s ongoing plan to become a regional hub in pharmaceutical production.

Risk/Reward Index

In Q316, we have revised Algeria's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index (RRI) score upwards to 50.8 (out of 100) from 50.4 previously. This is above the regional average of 41.3. The score revision was driven by improved country risks indices. Algeria remains in eighth place out of 31 countries in the Middle East and Africa region in BMI's proprietary RRI matrix. Algeria's score is boosted by a large pharmaceutical market and a favourable long-term market development, but dragged down by the country's poor regulatory environment.
