Pharma in Indonesia: Key International Players Join In

18 Feb, 2016, 04:04 ET from CPhI SEA - UBM

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The pull factor of Indonesia's pharmaceutical market is increasingly shifting from leveraging its celebrated potential to actual realities on the ground. The country's expanding middle class, its growing and ageing population and the implementation of a series of policy packages including the public health insurance all spur a current rising demand for healthcare services and pharmaceuticals in particular. 

For foreign investors, which the government announced on February 11th will soon be allowed to own 100% of local companies, a key driver is the possibility to access Indonesia's 250m strong population and other ASEAN countries to which Indonesian exports do not have to pay import duties. Therefore sales to the region become an increasingly interesting proposition for higher-value brands, where the sourcing of raw materials has less impact on total costs.

These and other positive factors have contributed to the international expansion of CPhI SEA, the only trade exhibition dedicated to the pharma industry in the region, held at Jakarta International Expo during April 6-8, 2016. New global exhibitors like Catalent, Croda or Tecnomaco, join an already crowded group made of companies like Evonik, Colorcon, Bahrain Pharma and Clariant.
