NEW YORK, June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

South African Pharmaceutical Market Outlook to 2014: Policy environment, market structure, competitive landscape, growth opportunities

The South African pharmaceutical market was worth over $2bn in 2008. Nearly 75% of pharmaceutical demand in South Africa is met by imports and hence the market value is heavily dependent on currency fluctuations. During 2007-08, the market posted double-digit growth in local currency terms, while declining in US dollar value. Overall sales from the market is expected to pass $3bn in 2012. Factors contributing to growth include the upcoming overhaul of the pharmaceutical regulatory system and healthcare delivery mechanism as well as growth of certain therapy areas in the country.

In general, the replacement of the Medicines Control Council (MCC) with the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) and the establishment of a universal healthcare scheme namely the National Health Insurance (NHI) will benefit all companies similarly. The arrival of SAHPRA is being viewed positively by industry organizations as this will lead to expediting drug approvals that translates to faster commercialization and speedier returns on investments. The establishment of a universal healthcare buyer and provider promises increased drug delivery and utilization in the country. However, ramifications in pharmaceutical pricing will threaten margins as bargaining power of a central financier will be significantly higher than the existing fragmented consumer base.
