Netherlands Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: The healthcare market in the Netherlands will continue to offer considerable commercial opportunities. As a part of the Health Insurance Act, implemented in 2006, private insurance for curative care and supplemental benefits is mandatory for the entire population. However, the Act is based on the principles of managed competition: insurers and providers of care compete on price and quality while the government has set certain rules to guarantee universal access to good-quality care - creating a highly competitive business environment and acting as a challenge to company revenue streams.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: EUR5.92bn (USD7.93bn) in 2014 to EUR5.85bn (USD6.43bn) in 2015; -1.2% in local currency terms and -18.9% in US dollar terms. Forecast in line with last quarter.

  • Healthcare: EUR73.31bn (USD98.23bn) in 2014 to EUR74.73bn (USD82.20bn) in 2015; +1.9% in local currency terms and -16.3% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised upwards from last quarter due to the release of WHO confirmed data.

Risk/Reward Index

The Netherlands continues to rank in the lower half of BMI's Risk/Reward Index (RRI) for the 15 key Western European markets, ranking 11th in our ratings for Q315. The country has moved up a position from last quarter. At 64.7, its overall RRI score remains only slightly below the regional average of 66.8. While the country offers drugmakers a relatively low-risk operating environment, poor market prospects - due to pressures on pricing and reimbursement and the market's maturity - will continue to weigh down the country's overall standing.
