Angola Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: Growth in Angola's healthcare sector will remain subdued over the near term as lower oil prices persist. A consequence of the oil price crash has seen a sizeable cut in the much-needed government funding for the healthcare sector following the revised state budget in February 2015. The funding cuts and weak consumer purchasing power amid the economic slowdown will result in increasingly unfavourable conditions for multinational pharmaceutical companies.

Headline Expenditure Forecasts

  • Pharmaceuticals: AOA32.09bn (USD326mn) in 2014 to AOA34.25bn (USD302mn) in 2015; +6.7% in local currency and -7.4% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised downwards from last quarter.

  • Healthcare: AOA514.17bn (USD5.22bn) in 2014 to AOA494.91bn (USD4.36bn) in 2015; -3.7% in local currency and -16.5% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised downwards from last quarter.

Risk/Reward Index

Angola's Pharmaceutical Risk/Reward Index (RRI) score for Q415 is 26.0, just lower than Nigeria (26.8). It falls three places from last quarter's ranking, making it the least attractive pharmaceutical market of the 31 countries in the Middle East and Africa region.
