New Report Available: Russia Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report Q2 2013

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.

The main transformation in the market over the last decade has been the growth of the state's role, both in establishing an industrial policy and investing in production for the first time since the end of the Soviet Union. Key drivers of growth for pharmaceuticals include programmes to fund medicines for specific segments and disease groups, as well as a pledged universal medicines insurance system due to be put into place later in the decade. Russia's recent World Trade Organization accession should drive improvements in the country's intellectual property (IP) environment, and enforcement in particular, which has been conspicuously lacking.

Risk/Reward Ratings: Russia's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Rating (RRR) score for Q213 is unchanged from the previous quarter. This is the case for all other countries in BMI's proprietary system, which ranks pharmaceutical markets according to their attractiveness to multinational drugmakers. A minor re-weighting of one of the RRR components is being implemented to improve the tool, and the adjusted scores for all markets will be published in the Q312 updates of the Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare reports. Russia has a RRR score of 58.0 out of 100.0, making it the second-most attractive pharmaceutical market in Emerging Europe.
