Cegedim: Romania’s pharmacy market posts growth for H1 2013

The pharmaceuticals market posted 3.5 % increase in the first half of the year, a rise that was driven by higher sales in the retail segment, despite limited public healthcare funding and late payment terms for drugs on the reimbursement lists. According to Cegedim, a data provider for the pharmaceuticals sector, said the market expanded by 3.4 % to EUR 647 million in the second quarter, although the drugs sales to hospitals shrank by 0.8 %. Craciun added the market is estimated to expand by 2.7 % in lei in 2014, given a “moderate” update of the reimbursed drugs list. According to Cegedim, sales of prescription based drugs expanded by 2.4 % to EUR 963 million in the first half, while over the counter medicines (OTC) added 9.1 % to EUR 202 million. The hospital segment posted a 3.1 % growth to EUR 180 million.
