Pharmaceutical Industry Outlook

Pharmaceutical Industry in the Mena region

The MENA region is rapidly developing and extremely diverse, spanning both countries at the cutting-edge of innovation and technology as well as emerging economies. According to Trade Arabia, the territory’s pharmaceutical market stands to grow to USD 60 billion by 2025 driven by significant growth in the UAE as well as in North African giants Egypt and Algeria.

Pharmaceutical Industry in Egypt

Egypt’s pharmaceutical market is among the most attractive in the MENA region. With the reforming economic and regulatory environment, there has been an increase in interest and investment from multinational pharmaceutical companies to enter this market. Egypt’s healthcare market is set for a period of transformation as Egypt is attempting to achieve universal healthcare access through the implementation of a comprehensive health insurance system.
