Kuwait Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q1 2015

BMI View: With some of the largest financial buffers of any GCC member nation, Kuwait is well equippedto insulate health expenditure from the near-term effects of falling oil prices. Accordingly, drugmakers canexpect high and rising underlying demand for branded prescriptions to be well sustained, due to the sector'sperception as a critical source of economic diversification away from hydrocarbons. However, recurrentgovernment resignations and a recent stalemate between the opposition and cabinet, resulting in majordelays to budget approval, illustrate the political volatility created by the deeply dysfunctionalpolicymaking process. As such, we anticipate mounting uncertainty as to the future direction of publicspending, which will increasingly frustrate long-term investment.
