Hong Kong Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, pharmaceutical associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Hong Kong's pharmaceuticals and healthcare industry.

Growth of the pharmaceutical market in Hong Kong is expected to be steady over the medium term. The market should reach HKD10.56bn (US$1.35bn) in value at consumer prices by 2014, up from the calculated HKD7.19bn (US$926mn) in 2009. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.99% in local currency terms, which will somewhat decrease to 7.06% over our longer, ten-year forecast period to 2019. A testament to its attractiveness, Hong Kong now occupies fifth place in the Asia Pacific Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Business Environment Ratings (BER) matrix for Q111, which ranks 17 key regional markets.

The above forecasts are based on a number of trends and expectations. Private per-capita drug expenditure will continue to rise as the government aims to cut public sector deficits and as expected changes facilitate the creation of private pharmacies in hospitals. READ MORE >
