Abstract Table of Contents Request Details Related
Well into our extended forecast period, market conditions in Chile remain very attractive for multinational drugmakers. Although cost containment and measures to promote the uptake of generics are ongoing, the pace of reform is slow and entrants will continue to enjoy a relatively flexible operating environment. Notably, the private sector, which constitutes a disproportionate share of total spending, is markedly less price sensitive than public consumers and will continue to exhibit strong bias towards patented treatments; maintaining strong demand for pharmaceuticals.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: From CLP1,792bn (USD2.98bn) to CLP1,984bn (USD3.33bn) in 2014; +8.7% in local currency terms and -6.2% in US dollar terms. Up from Q414.

  • Healthcare: From CLP10,237bn (USD16.84bn) to CLP11,167bn (USD18.37bn) in 2014; +9.1% in local currency terms. Unchanged from Q414.

Risk/Reward Index

With an RRI score of 53.9 out of 100 in Q115, Chile ranks 8thof the 18 markets covered in the Americas matrix, losing its 6thplace to Argentina. This figure is down from a score of 56.3 in Q414.

Key Trends a nd Developments

  • In October 2014, as reported by Reuters, Finance Minister Alberto Arenas announced that Chile's 2015 stimulus programme (authorising the government to issue up to USD8.0bn in local and foreign debt), which aims to boost investment in education and healthcare in order to counteract economic slowdown, may be scaled down from 2016 if growth hits targets above 4%.

  • In July 2014, Chilean authorities put a policy in place, altering decree 466/84 that applies to pharmacies, drug and pharmaceutical stores. It implements a series of measures to begin the reduction of excessive drug use and a move towards a more transparent pharmaceutical market.
