AMSTERDAM, April 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading events organiser UBM Live has revealed further details of the newest event to join the global UBM Pharma Portfolio, CPhI Southeast Asia (SEA) 2012.

"The ASEAN pharma market represents huge potential for companies looking to expand operations. Notably, there is strong interest in R&D for generics in this region, which are expected to grow from 8.3% of the total market in 2010 to 12.8% by 2015, when they will be worth USD 12.3bn(1)," noted Andrew Pert, UBM Live Regional Director. He went on to comment that, "Beyond generics, the Indonesian Pharmaceutical Association, GP Farmasi, forecasts a market value of USD 4.9 billion in 2012 which represents an increase of 10-12% year over year(1). The growth rate is phenomenal and UBM Live is pleased to debut CPhI Southeast Asia in 2012 to support this emerging market."
The ASEAN pharmaceutical market has experienced strong growth and a rise in the regional standard of living which have made it a region of interest for companies looking to explore new business opportunities. The growth has also impacted the import value of pharmaceutical raw materials which is projected to reach up to USD 1.39 billion this year, about 11-15 percent higher than last year, according to a recent article in Indonesia Finance Today(1).
CPhI Southeast Asia promises to offer direct access to the Indonesian and ASEAN pharmaceutical industry and provide attendees with the opportunity to gather information firsthand. The event will feature a zoned format for ease of navigation, with zones for APIs, intermediates, natural extracts, biopharmaceuticals, custom manufacturing, fine chemicals, excipients/formulations, and a general zone for the cross over between the different zones. There will also be international pavilions to cater to the diverse range of guests from across the globe. Specifically, the China and India Pavilions will offer contact with partners in the greater Asia pharmaceutical market.
