According to the new research report, Ukraine promises to be one of the most lucrative pharmaceutical markets in the world. In 2007, the Ukrainian pharmaceutical market grew by nearly 21% to register revenues in excess of US$ 2 Billion. The market is characterized by an increasing proportion of imported and high-priced drugs. In 2007, the average unit price of drugs sold in Ukraine increased by nearly 20%, strongly pushing the value of pharmaceutical sales, despite a relatively ordinary growth in sales volume.
The future outlook of the industry also seems very positive as the market is expected to be driven by a number of reforms recently proposed by the government. Factors such as increasing penetration of health insurance and increasing disposable incomes of consumers will also fuel growth. The lack of effective price controls and high margins are also expected to lure foreign players in this market. The country's unstable political environment, however, will be the biggest hurdle for investments. But overall, the market is expected to grow strongly, exceeding US$ 4.5 Billion in revenues by 2012.
