Research and Markets announces the addition of this new report entitled "Egypt Pharmaceutical Country Intelligence Report" to its offerings
EgyptÂs pharmaceutical market is the biggest in the Middle East due to its large population of nearly 70 million. Per capita spending, however, is low and market development has slowed in recent years. Government cost containment measures and rising costs of raw materials, within a market still supplied largely by domestic production, have dampened spending growth and reduced profit margins. Issues pertaining to IP laws, TRIPS obligations and pricing, combined with currency uncertainty are likely to result in uneven market growth, averaging around 4.5% per annum. In 2004, the Egyptian pharmaceutical market was worth an estimated US$1.27 billion, equal to US$19 per capita.
