Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/08/2015 -- Kuwait's pharmaceutical sector will remain insulated from the impact of lower oil prices given the country's strong fiscal buffers. Risks to our outlook include increasing generic penetration as health insurance coverage increases.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: From KWD287mn (USD1.01bn) in 2014 to KWD300mn (USD1.01bn) in 2015; +4.7% in local currency terms and +0.6% in US dollar terms. Forecast unchanged from Q415.
Healthcare: From KWD1.53bn (USD5.38bn) in 2014 to KWD1.64bn (USD5.55bn) in 2015; +7.3% in local currency terms and +3.1% in US dollar terms. Forecast in line with Q 4 15.

Risk/Reward Index

In our Q116 Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index Kuwait scores 52.9 out of 100. Falling from a Q415 score of 53.7, the country has maintained its position as the sixth most attractive market in the region. The burden of diabetes will continue to expand in the region as the population ages and adopts increasingly sedentary lifestyles. Increasing insurance coverage and rising income levels will lead to greater spending on diabetes, and commercial opportunities will be sought by multinational pharmaceutical companies, health insurers and providers.
