Understanding Indonesia's Regional Healthcare Markets

BMI View: The rollout of Indonesia's national health insurance programme for one of the world's largest populations will provide significant revenue-generating opportunities for pharmaceutical companies. We address the challenges faced by the healthcare sector in each region, and how economic, demographic and other factors shape the provision of healthcare across the country. We also point out the strengths and weakness in each region's healthcare system, and highlight the opportunities and risks for businesses and investors.

Indonesia's large population, wealth of natural resources, strong economic growth prospects and local governments' determination to improve healthcare service are the key factors to drive the country's healthcare expenditure growth. However, Indonesia has an extremely young population, with 44% of the nation younger than 25. In general, ageing populations are expected to consume more healthcare resources than young populations. In addition, part-time workers make up nearly 70% of the total employed Indonesians, while official unemployment was 5.9% in Q113. This means that there is a substantial pool of people that are unemployed or underemployed, and hence less of a contribution to the national healthcare resources.

The rollout of Indonesia's national health insurance programme will have a significant impact on the country's healthcare landscape.

Indonesia’s national health insurance programme has now been rolled out across the country. Being one of the world’s largest populations, this will provide significant opportunities for pharma companies in the future – but which regions will have the biggest opportunities, and risks? And what effect will this have on the national health infrastructure?

Any assessment of Indonesia must consider the potential variations across Java, Kalimantan, the Lesser Sunda Islands, Maluku Islands, Sulawesi, Sumatra and Western New Guinea, as well as down to provincial levels. Geographical diversity will impact on medical services and this report answers those key questions that will arise:

  • How is the population distributed? How is healthcare divided?

  • Health funding: How is the Government expenditure vs. private expenditure indicated?

  • What are the long-term macroeconomic forecasts?

  • Which regions are better provided for and which still need investment?

Identifying opportunities in Indonesia’s growing health economy requires detailed knowledge of the economic performance and health infrastructure at a regional and province level. Being able to see that in the context of neighboring provinces and the national picture, brings focus to areas of opportunity.
