Declining government reimbursement for prescription medicines does not bode well for innovative drugmakers selling their products in Sweden, particularly as the government is the primary purchaser of pharmaceuticals. Furthermore, over the long term, pushing costs onto a population with fewer young people to financially support the elderly will ultimately work to reduce the consumption of higher-value innovative pharmaceuticals.

Headline Expenditure Projections
  • Pharmaceuticals: SEK36.28bn (USD5.70bn) in 2013 to SEK36.41bn (USD5.36bn) in 2014; +0.38% in local currency terms and -5.9% in US dollar terms.
  • Healthcare: SEK351.16bn (USD55.18bn) in 2013 to SEK356.95bn (USD52.56bn) in 2014; +1.6% in local currency terms and -4.7% in US dollar terms.
Risk/Reward Index: We continue to view Sweden as a moderately attractive regional market. On the positive side, factors such as the country's high per capita incomes and strong regulatory foundations will continue to promote per capita spending on pharmaceuticals and healthcare in general. However, the downward pressure on pharmaceutical prices will continue to be acutely felt in this small market of fewer than 10mn people.

Sweden only needs to improve its prevention under 'Exercise in compulsory school', according to the HCP.
