Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/20/2013 -- Despite a challenging pricing and reimbursement situation, BMI still believes the market is attractive in the long term as higher y-o-y growth rates return from 2013/14. In contrast to European markets where manufacturers can expect to achieve higher prices, but with a stagnant growth outlook, Turkey offers strong growth potential if drugmakers are able to accept a price that is considerably below the European average and turn a profit on the low margins available.

Turkey's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Rating (RRR) score for Q114 is 56.5, down from 58 in the previous quarter. Turkey's comparative ranking remains unchanged. The country is again ranked the fifth most attractive business environment out of the 20 markets surveyed in Emerging Europe. Turkey's large drug market, coupled with the sector's long-term growth potential, means that the country scores relatively well for rewards in spite of a slight downward adjustment to our appraisal for this quarter. In terms of risks, several rounds of pricing reforms mean that the country scores closer to the regional average.
