Lithuania Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q1 2013

Publisher Name :
Date: 16-Jan-2013
No. of pages: 96

We continue to hold our subdued outlook for the Lithuanian pharmaceuticals market during the next few years, on account of the changing economic and demographic situation. We expect limited low single digit growth in 2012, with the market expected to increase by a local currency margin of 2.5 %year-on-year (y-o-y) to reach LTL1.68bn (US$618mn) in 2012 at consumer prices. However, in US dollar terms, the market’s value will shrink by 6.3%, indicating the challenges facing companies operating in the market.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals:LTL1.64bn (US$659mn) in 2011 to LTL1.68bn (US$618mn) in 2012; +2.5 %in local currency terms and -6.3% in US dollar terms. Forecast slightly up from Q412 on account of new macroeconomic data.
  • Healthcare:LTL6.99bn (US$2.81bn) in 2011 to LTL7.29bn (US$2.68bn) in 2012; +4.3% in local currency terms and -4.7% in US dollar terms. Forecast slightly up from Q412 on account of new macroeconomic data.
  • Medical devices:LTL679mn (US$273mn) in 2011 to LTL749mn (US$276mn) in 2012; +10.3% in local currency terms and +0.8% in US dollar terms. Forecast slightly up from Q412 on account of new macroeconomic data.

Risk/Reward Rating:

In our Q113 Pharmaceuticals Risk/Reward Rating (RRR) matrix, Lithuania is 15th, out of the 20 markets surveyed in Emerging Europe, below its Baltic peers. Although Lithuania boasts a largely risk-free operating environment, its muted rewards prospects will continue to impact its standing in the regional matrix. Globally, Lithuania ranks 60th out of 95 markets surveyed.

Key Trends and Developments

In October 2012, Seimas of the Homeland Union-Lithuanian Christian Democrats (TS-LKD) faction George Razma appealed the government to reconsider additional funding of LTL60.0mn (US$22.7mn) for healthcare institutions in the country. Lithuanian patients have to pay extra for medical services that should be available for free, Razma said. The additional funds are expected to partially solve the issue of lack of funding for treatment services. Razma asked the government to evaluate the proposal after considering the difficult situation of Lithuania’s hospital system.

BMI Economic View:

We have revised up our growth outlook for 2013 economic growth on account of improved financing conditions and signs of a tightening labour market. However, Lithuania’s construction sector remains a long way off from a meaningful recovery, and coupled with a weak external climate, we maintain a tepid outlook for the economy over the coming years.

BMI Political View:

Controversy surrounding an ongoing criminal investigation into key members of a majority newly-elected coalition party means that the incoming administration of Prime Ministerdesignate Algirdas Butkevicius will be under enormous pressure to acquire political credibility by honouring its anti-austerity mandate. Although we have long accounted for a looser fiscal policy in our view that Lithuania would continue to progress towards euro adoption, the risk of major coalition instability and a rift with the president’s office threatens to force the government into a far more aggressive policy direction than under our current baseline scenario.

  • Germany Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 134
    BMI View: Germany's medicines pricing regime will continue to restrict drugmakers' revenue streams. The AMNOG has proved to be tough, with the majority of medicine reimbursement prices lying under the average of or below the lowest of the European reference country basket. Additionally, legislators have voted to continue the 2010 implemented price freeze on reimbursed drugs until the end of 2017. However, the long term and clear nature of the measures implemented by the government is a much more......
  • Canada Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 122
    BMI View: The Canadian pharmaceutical and healthcare market will become increasingly attractive to pharmaceutical companies over the next few years as economic growth in the country gradually accelerates. The hospitable business environment, improving healthcare coverage and broader drug reimbursement lists will continue to provide revenue-generating opportunities for drugmakers. Headline Expenditure Projections ? Pharmaceuticals: CAD25.6bn (USD24.9bn) in 2013 to CAD25.9bn (USD22.5bn) in 2014; +......
  • Turkey Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 125
    BMI View: Data released by the Turkish drugmakers association for 2013 sales corresponds with our own forecasts. We have also modified our pharmaceutical sales forecast for 2014 and beyond to reflect the volatile exchange rate situation. We now see Turkey's lustre as an emerging pharmaceutical market regressing over the medium term. We believe that the business environment will continue to impede the industry and see very little scope for the central government to enact business-friendly reform ......
  • Cameroon Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 58
    BMI View: Mobile health has strong growth potential in Cameroon, given the lack of health infrastructure and medical professionals. The use of mobile health will help to improve accessibility to healthcare, to some extent. However, we maintain that in order for Cameroon to reach its full potential, there needs to be much greater commitment to invest in healthcare services. Headline Expenditure Projections ? Pharmaceuticals: XAF148.82bn (USD300mn) in 2013 to XAF166.95bn (USD320mn) in 2014; +12.2%......

    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 69
    BMI View: Sourcing accurate and reliable quantitative data on Tanzania's pharmaceutical market remains challenging due to substandard audits, porous sales channels, a high prevalence of counterfeits, questionable national statistics, dispensing without prescriptions, sizeable 'grey markets' and the widespread use of traditional remedies. BMI takes into account the import dependence of countries for medicines and assumes that economic growth as well as the resulting increase in the size of Tanzan......
  • Bulgaria Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 101
    BMI View: The Ministry of Health's plan to increase MAH fees, coupled with price cuts for generic drugs and freezes on OTC medicine prices indicate that the Bulgarian pharmaceutical market will not see meaningful growth in 2014. However, we expect a pickup in demand for innovative drugs to reinvigorate interest in the country, although it will continue to present a relatively small opportunity for drugmakers in the region. Headline Expenditure Projections ? Pharmaceuticals: BGN2.32bn (USD1.58bn)......
  • Taiwan Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report Q3 2014
    Published: 28-May-2014        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 136
    BMI View: BMI believes that cost-containment policies will not place significant pressure on healthcare expenditure in Taiwan. This is because the majority of spending in the medical services sector goes towards salaries for doctors and nurses, which are difficult to cut back on without arousing political opposition. Meanwhile, the needs of the ageing population mean that demand is increasing for innovative pharmaceuticals and medical devices, which will sustain higher health expenditure. Taiwan......

We have revised the healthcare and pharmaceutical market forecast slightly upwards to reflect this. The EUR-USD exchange rate continues to provide investment opportunities for overseas investors. In the medium term, Austria's pharmaceutical and healthcare spending will post weak growth as the government caps growth in public healthcare expend......

In addition, we highlight that high inflation, volatile currency exchange rates and civil unrests are some of the key risks that will continue to limit pharmaceutical growth potential in Sudan and South Sudan.
