The Czech Republic pharmaceutical market is one of the most attractive markets in Central and Eastern Europe. The availability of cost effective skilled labour, high quality infrastructure and EU harmonious regulations are the main reasons for the fast growth of the Czech pharmaceutical industry. Most local drug manufacturers and distributors are owned by big international pharmaceutical firms. GBI Research valued the Czech pharmaceutical market at $3.1 billion in 2010, which grew with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.7% from 2004 to 2010. The Czech healthcare sector will witness many new healthcare reforms in the coming years, with the primary objective of reducing growing drug expenditure. In response to these healthcare policies, the Czech pharmaceutical market is expected to witness a lower growth rate in forecast period.

GBI Research has analyzed that in 2011, generics had a share of over 50% of the Czech pharmaceutical market. Czech government reforms encourage the manufacture and use of generic drugs, in an attempt to limit drug expenditure and provide low cost-effective public healthcare. Government healthcare policies, coupled with numerous active generic manufacturing companies in the country, will increase the share of generics in the market during the forecast period.

The Czech Republic is showing a moderate recovery from the economic downturn in 2009; increased industrial outputs and government structural reforms in various sectors including healthcare have contributed to the growth. GBI Research analyzed that the new healthcare reform policy which is expect to be implemented from 2012, with elements of standard and above standard care, in which patients pay more for above standard (expensive drugs and services) care and an increase in co-payments from the patients, reduces healthcare affordability for individual patients and will pose a major challenge to the Czech pharmaceutical market.
