  • What Are the Opportunities in the Pharmaceutical Market in Egypt?
    Apr 12, 2022 What Are the Opportunities in the Pharmaceutical Market in Egypt?
    Straddling Asia and Africa, Egypt has obvious geopolitical advantages and can radiate the Middle East, North Africa and even Europe. Its population has exceeded 100 million, making it the most populous country in the MENA region, and it has a wide influence in the region. According to Aikunwei (IQVIA), the total pharmaceutical market in Egypt was USD 2.72 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 6.04 billion by 2022, with an average annual growth rate of 17.3%, making it one of the largest pharmaceutical consumption markets in the MENA region. Vigorous Promotion of Universal Health Insurance, Medical Investment in the Future Can Be Expected Limited by economic development and payment capacity, Egypt's financial allocation for healthcare in previous years was less than 2% of GDP, which is far below the global average (WHO: the average ratio of global health expenditure to GDP in 2016 was 7%). As a result of the epidemic, Egypt's FY2020/21 budget, has increased public health spending to about 3% of GDP. The Egyptian health service system is mainly composed of central hospitals under the Ministry of Health, university hospitals under the Ministry of Higher Education, military hospitals under the Ministry of Defense, police hospitals under the Ministry of Interior, and private hospitals and clinics. There are 1,798 hospitals with about 130,000 beds in the country. Among them, there are 691 public hospitals, accounting for 38%, but the bed share is as high as 77% (about 100,000 beds in public hospitals and about 30,000 beds in private hospitals). The lower quality of services in public hospitals has resulted in "serious diversion" from private hospitals. Although the supply of medical services is currently dominated by public institutions, private medical institutions are growing rapidly, including hospitals, imaging centers, and out-of-hospital laboratories, which are expanding rapidly. In line with Egypt Vision 2030, the Egyptian government is committed to promoting a comprehensive health care system. A new Universal Health Insurance Authority (UHA) was established in 2019, and health insurance will be financed mainly from participant contributions, with individuals able to pay 5% of their gross salaries to become insured, as well as through financing from international organizations such as the IMF. The new universal health care system is proposed to be implemented in six phases. the first phase in 2020 starts with a pilot in six governorates and is planned to complete full coverage by 2032. Egypt's current President Sisi is expected to rule until 2030 after the constitutional amendment, so that the promotion of universal health care has a political guarantee, the future health care investment is expected to continue to increase. Pharmaceutical Regulation Follows the West, Public Collection of Strong Price Pressure The Egyptian government has vigorously promoted the reform of medical supplies management institutions, with the new Egyptian Drug ...
