Central America Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: Costa Rica and Panama will continue to outperfor m other Central American countries, namely El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Belize . The business-friendly environment, high per-capita medicine spending and strong consumer demand still present strong revenue-generating opportunities for multimodal pharmaceutical companies.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: USD3.5bn in 2013 to USD3.7bn in 2014; +4.1%. Our forecast has been revised slightly down since Q314 due to less promising industry data.

  • Healthcare: USD16.0bn in 2013 to USD16.8bn in 2014; +4.8 %. Our forecast has been revised downwards since Q314 due to revised historical data.
