South Africa Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare Report

BMI View: The continued commitment of the South African government to boosting spending on healthcare will be the primary driver for the growth of the pharmaceutical market in 2015. Although lower oil prices will improve the consumer environment for lower cost medicines, rampant unemployment will continue to hurt private consumption growth.

Headline Expenditure Projections

  • Pharmaceuticals: ZAR39.79bn (USD3.67bn) in 2014 to ZAR43.44bn (USD3.65bn) in 2015; +9.2% in local currency terms and -0.6% in US dollar terms.

  • Healthcare: ZAR332.81bn (USD30.68bn) in 2014 to ZAR362.91bn (USD30.45bn) in 2015; +9.0% in local currency terms and -0.7% in US dollar terms.

Expenditure is expected to increase steadily and reach ZAR178bn (USD15.1bn) in the 2017/18 fiscal year. The healthcare budget corresponds to 12.9% of the allocated expenditure, falling short of the 15% pledged as part of the 2001 Abuja Declaration. Economic Affairs, Defence, Public Order and Safety, Education, Social Protection and Local Development and Social Infrastructure all received a larger share of the budget than healthcare.

  • In March 2015, South Africa-based Bidvest, which owns a 34.5% stake in pharmaceutical group Adcock Ingram, has offered to buy the remaining stake for ZAR52 (USD4.45) a share. The proposal includes the purchase of current Adcock black economic...
