Hungary's pharmaceutical market will stabilise and grow slightly in 2015. The challenging operating environment, regulatory burden and punitive taxes on the pharmaceutical sector will continue to stunt growth.

Headline Expenditure Projections
  • Pharmaceuticals: HUF579.14bn (USD2.50bn) in 2014 to HUF590.49bn (USD2.31bn) in 2014; +2.0% in local currency terms and -7.9% in US dollar terms.
  • Healthcare: HUF2,191bn (USD9.47bn) in 2014 to HUF2,232bn (USD8.72bn) in 2014; +1.9% in local currency terms and -7.9% in US dollar terms.
