Argentina Healthcare, Regulatory and Reimbursement Landscape

  1. 1. RnR Market Research Offers “Healthcare, Regulatory and Reimbursement Landscape –Argentina” Report at US$ 1995 Single User License. The report got published in Apr 2013Contain 155 Pages.Value of Argentina’s Pharmaceutical Market to Almost Triple in Value over One Decade, Says GlobalDataAnalysisArgentina’s pharmaceutical market is expected to grow from a value of around US$5.6 billion in 2012 toUS$15 billion by 2020, thanks to a strong presence of domestic laboratories, high-quality manufacturingcapabilities and favorable clinical trial regulations, cites new analysis by research and consulting firmGlobalData.According to the new report*, domestic laboratories account for over 50% of the Argentinepharmaceutical market. Key domestic companies include Roemmers and Bagó, while multinationals suchas Bayer, Novartis, Roche, Abbott and GlaxoSmithkline (GSK) also operate in the country.The trend towards domestic pharma production has existed for several decades in Argentina. Localplayers are provided with government benefits such as favorable tariff protection, while raw materialimport costs historically undercut the transfer pricing generally applicable for multinationals. This givesdomestic players a competitive advantage in Argentina.The Argentine government enacted a law as part of the Health Emergency Act, enforcing physicians toinclude generic names of prescribed products, enabling pharmacies to use generic substitution. Theresultant increase in generic sales led to the growth of Argentine generic drug manufacturers.Get Report Details @’s regulations governing intellectual property rights have also historically provided a distinctadvantage to domestic companies, who were free to manufacture and sell products similar to patentedversions. However, since Argentina became a signatory of Trade Related Intellectual Property rights(TRIPS) and General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), local manufacturers could be negativelyaffected by restrictions on the manufacture and sale of patented products.Argentina is also considered a favorable destination for cost-effective clinical trials within the LatinAmerican region, and was one of the first Latin American countries to implement the recommendations ofthe WHO’s Good Manufacturing Practices and Control standards, endorsing compliance to aninternational set of quality standards for pharmaceutical production. Clinical trial standards are alsosimilar to the International Conference on Harmonization – Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP) standards.However, Argentina’s pharmaceutical industry faces some barriers. Argentine pharmaceutical companieslack the vast production capacities of Chinese and Indian companies, and are unable to compete withlower prices offered by them. Argentina also faces stiff challenges from other Latin American countriessuch as Mexico and Brazil, who have strengthened their pharmaceutical industries over the last decade.In addition, the research and development (R&D) efforts of domestic pharmaceutical companies do nothold a fruitful history, and although investment has increased over the past few years, no local playershave been able to develop new chemical entities, making it difficult for domestic companies to competewith innovative multinationals.
