Slovenia Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View:   Slovenia is facing deflationary pressures on cons umer prices ,   which will impact pharmaceutical spending - especially as an increasing proportion of high - value drugs is met by co-payments. We have therefore downwardly revised our pharmaceutical forecast for 2014. A high budget deficit limits room for the new government to increase funding for health services, and we expect healthcare spending to decline this year and next, before returning to modest growth in 2016.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: EUR720mn (USD960mn) in 2013 to EUR700mn (USD940mn) in 2014; -2.5% in local currency terms and -1.6% in US dollar terms.

  • Healthcare: EUR3.1bn (USD4.1bn) in 2013 to EUR3.0bn (USD4.0bn) in 2014; -1.9% in local currency terms and -1.1% in US dollar terms.

Risk/Reward Rating

 Slovenia's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Rating score for Q414 stands at 50.4 out of a total of 100, below the regional average of 51.4. This rating has remained unchanged from the previous quarter.

Key Trends & Developments

  • In July 2014, Slovenian generic pharmaceutical company Krka was fined by the EC due to alleged violation of anti-trust rules by preventing a blood pressure drug from entering EC markets.

  • In July 2014, Krka recorded a 0.4% year-on-year increase in sales to EUR599.4mn (USD813.39mn) in H114. The firm saw robust performance in Southeast Europe, with an 11% increase in sales - although it posted a 17% decrease in net profit to EUR42.5mn (USD58.19mn) in Q114. The decrease has been attributed to the negative impact of exchange rates on earnings, particularly the depreciation of the Russian rouble.  

BMI Economic View: We have lowered our inflation forecasts for Slovenia and now expect a period of mild deflation in 2014, which should help to support real wage growth and household purchasing power. Demand-side pressures will remain absent for the foreseeable future. While the economy is slowly emerging from recession - we...
