Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/06/2014 -- The political instability and underdeveloped economies in many Central American countries make the region less attractive to multinationals, compared with most neighbouring countries. However, the heavy reliance on imported medicine in the region provides revenue-generating opportunities for generic drugmakers from neighbouring Latin American countries and India. We highlight that Costa Rica and Panama can be the premier countries in the region for foreign drugmakers to expand their presence.

The Pharmaceutical Market: Australia
The country's health expenditure will continue to increase with the increasingly ageing population and the need for the government to subsidise more drugs to treat chronic, non-communicable disease. Such a rise in expenditure will attract pharmaceutical firms despite the low growth potential in the developed market. However, given the poor fiscal outlook in the general economy, we believe such a generous healthcare system will be unsustainable over the long term and the country will continue look at cost-cutting measures, negatively affecting the earnings of pharmaceutical firms.

The Pharmaceutical Market: New Zealand
New Zealand was ranked 10th out of 18 pharmaceutical markets surveyed in the Asia region in Q1 13. Its score is dragged down by a low industry rewards score, due to its small and relatively low-growth potential market, and a low industry risks score because of its regulatory processes. In terms of Rewards, New Zealand is rated highly thanks to a stable economic and political environment and developed regulatory regimen.
