Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/06/2016 -- Despite being among the smallest pharmaceutical and healthcare markets in the GCC, Oman's ambitious expansion projects will attract investments from numerous international players. Engagement of the private sector will provide the most significant growth prospects, although the public sector will still remain the dominant healthcare payer.

Headline Expenditure Projections

Pharmaceuticals: OMR205mn (USD532mn) in 2014 to OMR219mn (USD568mn) in 2015; 6.8% in local currency and US dollar terms. Forecast in line with Q 3 15.

Healthcare: OMR855mn (USD2.22bn) in 2014 to OMR942mn (USD2.45bn) in 2015; +10.1% in local currency and US dollar terms. Forecast in line with Q 3 15.

Risk/Reward Index

Oman has limited longer-term commercial potential due to its small population and the fact that the government is responsible for the bulk of healthcare costs, which will increase the need for cost containment in the coming years. In Q415, Oman scores 49.0 out of 100 in the BMI Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index, which has seen the move up one position to ninth place in the Middle East and Africa matrix out of 31 countries.
