Kuwait's pharmaceutical sector will remain dominated by multinational drugmakers given the preference for branded products among both prescribers and consumers. Development of the local generics sector will be stimulated by the implementation of cost-containment measures within the healthcare sector.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: From KWD287mn (USD1.01bn) in 2014 to KWD300mn (USD1.01bn) in 2015; +4.7% in local currency terms and +0.6% in US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from Q315.

Healthcare: From KWD1.56bn (USD5.49bn) in 2014 to KWD1.67bn (USD5.64bn) in 2015; +6.9% in local currency terms and +2.7% in US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from Q315.

Risk/Reward Index

In our Q415 Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index Kuwait scores 53.7 out of 100. Falling from a Q315 score of 56.1, the country has dropped from its position as the third most attractive market in the region to the sixth most attractive. The burden of diabetes will continue to expand in the region as the population ages and adopts increasingly sedentary lifestyles. Increasing insurance coverage and rising income levels will lead to greater spending on diabetes, and commercial opportunities will be sought by multinational pharmaceutical companies, health insurers and providers.
