Kuwait Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q4 2014

BMI View: Notwithstanding a recent escalation in political uncertainty, Kuwait's healthcare sector isforecast to preserve its trajectory of modest growth throughout the remainder of 2014. Rising sales areunderpinned by an expanding population, whose levels of chronic conditions increasingly call for thesupply of long-term treatments and cutting-edge medical equipment. In addition, apprehension towards fakegenerics and an accompanying government crackdown have further solidified popular demand for brandeddrugs. However, a confusing bureaucracy and sluggish implementation of key foreign direct investment andintellectual property reform will continue to dampen overall investment and restrain Kuwait from matchingthe pace of other emerging economies.
