Pakistan holds great potential for pharmaceutical and healthcare companies, with the world's sixth largest population. However, poor medical infrastructure, low per capita incomes and the high levels of counterfeit medicines prevent the market from realising this potential. This leaves the majority of the population without access to healthcare, save for Pakistan's elite class who can afford innovative medicines.

  • Pharmaceuticals: PKR209.43bn (USD2.06bn) in 2013 to PRK231.22bn (USD2.22bn) in 2014; +10.4% in local currency terms and +7.8% in US dollar terms.
  • Healthcare: PKR717.84bn (USD7.07bn) in 2013 to PKR791.64bn (USD7.61bn) in 2014; +10.3% in local currency terms and +7.7% in US dollar terms.
Risk/Reward Index: Pakistan's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index (RRI) score for Q115 is 41.7 out of 100. As a result its place in our rankings has risen to 15th, from 16th previously, out of the 19 markets in the Asia Pacific region.

Key Trends & Developments
  • In September, officials revealed that the new government has put on hold plans to restructure the financing of healthcare projects. The restructuring plan created by the former government was intended to decentralise the system in an attempt to speed up decision making.
  • In September, the Japanese government provided USD70,660 to Pakistan through the True Worth Foundation. These funds will go towards the improvement of the organisation's health centre in Chatta Bakhtawar, Islamabad. Estimates suggest that approximately 5,400 people from the outskirts of Islamabad will benefit from this project every year.
  • In October, Pakistan recorded its 200 th new case of Polio in 2014. This is the highest transmission rate in the country for more than a dozen years, alarming health experts both locally and internationally. Pakistan now accounts for 80% of the global cases of Polio and is at risk of exporting the disease out of the country.
