Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/14/2014 -- We expect the Lithuanian pharmaceutical market to post a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.8 %, rising to a value of LTL2.1 1 bn ( USD 7 32 mn) in 2018. The upcoming switch to the euro promises to boost purchasing power and stabilise the pharmaceutical market , albeit at the cost of increasing healthcare expenditure . Ceding control of monetary policy to Brussels leaves Lithuania with little leeway to increas e its healthcare spending dramatically over the next five years. The Lithuanian market will continue to pose a modest opportunity for drugmakers due to its small absolute size relative to its neighbouring markets.
Headline Expenditure Projections
- Pharmaceuticals: LTL1.74bn (USD667mn) in 2013 to LTL1.82bn (USD689mn) in 2014; +4.1% in local currency terms and +3.3% in US dollar terms.
- Healthcare: LTL7.68bn (USD2.94bn) in 2013 to LTL8.01bn (USD3.04bn) in 2014; +4.3% in local currency terms and +3.5% in US dollar terms.
