Industry Trend Analysis - Opportunities Outweigh Challenges In Private Healthcare Sector - DEC 2017

BMI View : The role of private investment towards improving healthcare delivery in Egypt will become increasingly important over the long term, shaping commercial opportunities for private healthcare providers and foreign drugmakers. While newly proposed pricing legislation has led to major uncertainty in the Egyptian healthcare market, we maintain our view that Egypt will remain one of the more attractive destinations for private sector investment in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region ' s healthcare market.

Egypt's healthcare sector will continue to provide significant investment opportunities from foreign players as the rising demand for and access to healthcare services progressively expands. Despite this, exploiting these opportunities will remain challenging as the confluence of pricing complications for medical services, delays in the implementation of news laws and macroeconomic instabilities challenge foreign investors in the pharmaceuticals and healthcare sector.
