The Egyptian pharmaceutical market is focused on generics. Per capita spending is low, but the large population means overall sales are worth around $3bn. Out-of-pocket expenditure accounts for around 75% of pharmaceutical sales. In the long term, increasing affluence and universal health insurance will boost sales.

Historically, intellectual property rights were not enforced, and firms were able to register generics/copies using data from the originator companies. Despite some changes, Egypt is on the Watch List of the US Trade Representative due to inadequate enforcement. This means that companies have been slow to introduce new products.

Egypt has certain key differences from many other markets. For example, the data protection period for drugs is five years from when the registration application is filed, rather than from the date of market authorization.
