Indonesian pharmaceutical market to grow 6% annually
AMSTERDAM, May 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Leading events organiser, UBM Live, announces the return of CPhI South East Asia. Now in its third consecutive year, the leading pharmaceutical ingredients event, co-located with P-MEC and InnoPack, will take place at the Jakarta International Expo, Indonesia from 20th to 22nd May 2014.
Acting as the central hub within South East Asia, the Indonesian pharmaceutical market is growing faster than the world's average and is projected to be the fastest growing economy within the ASEAN, predicted to rise at an annual rate of 6% through to 2018. Further, pharmaceutical firms within the region are set to benefit from the government's universal healthcare system enforced this year. As a result, healthcare spending in Indonesia is anticipated to reach US$21.7bn by 2015. With the potential pharmaceutical market reaching a value of US$80bn by 2017, alongside an increased harmonization across all South East Asian nations. CPhI South East Asia and its co-located events provide an unparalleled regional platform for both domestic and international buyers and suppliers to meet, network and drive the South East Asian pharma sector.
Last year, attendance figures hit record levels with over 5,500 attendees from 51 countries and regions including USA, UK, India, Japan and Russia. A total of 264 companies were present as exhibitors and it is projected that these figures will be exceeded at this year's event to mirror the expanding domestic marketplace.

"The South East Asian pharmaceutical market is already expanding at a higher rate than the global pharmaceutical industry and there is strong evidence to suggest that this growth will continue. Further, we are now seeing an increase in harmonization across South East Asian nations, which will undoubtedly make the region a far more powerful player within the global marketplace. This will likely increase competition, meaning it is an ideal time for international buyers and suppliers to break into this attractive market," commented Chris Kilbee, Group Director, Pharma, UBM Live.
