Market Overview-In Brief

The Arab World Pharmaceutical Market  is valued at over 4 billion dollars. The region is one of the top 10 markets in the world with an annual growth rate of 9%.

The growth in the region can be contributed to several factors such as:  the rapid population growth of the region;  improved relations with western manufacturers, easing of business regulations and import controls in some countries,  and the overall demand by local governments to provide a higher quality and level of healthcare to its citizens.

Anti-infectives drugs account for the largest share of the private sector sector market, about 22%.  They also make up 23% of the public market sector sales.  However, in markets like Egypt, Kuwait, and the UAE, gastro-intestinal preparations are continually gaining larger market shares.

Local production accounts for 62% of the total regional market, although manufacturing is heavily dependent on the import of raw materials.  In Saudi Arabia, local production only accounts for only 15% of the total market.
