Netherlands Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: Despite Netherlands ' expectations for a return to positive economic growth in 2014, its government will continue with austerity measures to comply with EU budget criteria. Drugmakers have generally charged what the market will bear in both developed and emerging markets. With the advent of health economics, coupled with increasing budget deficits, there will be more caps on medicine expenditure in the near future, particularly on essential drugs. We therefore maintain that further restrictions on medicines prices will work to create a subdued outlook for patented and generic drugmakers operating in the country.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: EUR6.09bn (USD8.04bn) in 2013 to EUR5.94bn (USD7.78bn) in 2014; -2.4% in local currency terms and -3.1% in US dollar terms.

  • Healthcare: EUR74.69bn (USD98.59bn) in 2013 to EUR76.21bn (USD99.83bn) in 2014; 2.0% in local currency terms and -1.3% in US dollar terms.

Risk/Reward Ratings

The Netherlands continues to rank in the lower half of BMI's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Ratings (RRRs) for the 15 key Western European markets, falling one place to 11 th in our ratings for Q314.

This was the result of the rise of Finland and the incorporation of Denmark in our ratings system, both of which overtook the Netherlands. While the country offers drugmakers a relatively low-risk operating environment, poor market prospects - due to pressures on pricing and reimbursement and the market's maturity - will continue to weigh down the country's overall standing.

Key Trends And Developments

In April, The Dutch Health Performance Report had found that Dutch families spend up to a quarter of their incomes on healthcare. Families with an aggregate income of less than EUR50,000 (USD69,324) spent about EUR11,500 (USD15,944) on health costs in 2012 or around 23.5% of their...
