Morocco Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: Our outlook for Morocco ' s pharmaceutical market remains relatively optimistic over the short-to-long term. Increased access to healthcare in Morocco following the implementation of the final phase of its universal health insurance scheme will drive an increase in pharmaceutical spending. The country's reliance on pharmaceutical imports will provide opportunities for multinational drugmakers, though the inefficient regulatory environment is a risk to operating in Morocco .

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: MAD10.37bn (USD1.23bn) in 2013 to MAD10.53bn (USD1.28bn) in 2014; +1.6% in local currency terms and +4.0% in US dollar terms. Forecast increased from last quarter due to upward revision of historical data.

  • Healthcare: MAD57.78bn (USD6.87bn) in 2013 to MAD62.58bn (USD7.62bn) in 2014; +8.3% in local currency terms and +10.8% in US dollar terms.

The market's constraints include low per capita consumption and an underdeveloped reimbursement system, although such factors are to a degree offset by a relatively predictable operating environment.
