Bangladesh 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 Bangladesh's pharmaceuticals and healthcare industry.

Bangladesh’s pharmaceutical industry, which was worth US$1.40bn in 2010, is fairly typical for South Asia. Growth is high but per-capita spending remains low. The market is also characterised by the ability of those on high incomes to purchase expensive patented drugs, while the vast majority of the population make do with frequently sub-standard over-the-counter (OTC) preparations. Local pharmaceutical companies and those multinationals with manufacturing facilities in Bangladesh cater for approximately 95% of domestic demand. Of the 49 UN-decreed Least Developed Countries (LDCs), Bangladesh is the only one that is nearly self-sufficient in terms of pharmaceutical production.
