The Pharmaceutical Industry


The pharmaceutical sector, which researches, develops, markets and distributes drugs, as part of the wider healthcare system, is valued at R50bn at manufacturers’ exit price and R68bn using retail sales. The industry faces the challenge of expanding access to and affordability of drugs, on the one hand and growing South Africa’s drug manufacturing capacity on the other. The sector seeks to meet this challenge in the context of implementation of the National Health Insurance (NHI) and rapid technological developments.


Changing Regulatory Environment


Several developments that will affect the industry include the Medical Aid Schemes Bill, National Health Insurance Bill, intellectual property regime overhaul, Competition Commission health inquiry and the introduction of a new regulator for medicines, medical devices and complementary medicines. Following the legalisation of cannabis for private use, the first medical cannabis cultivation licences have been awarded. All of these issues are discussed in detail in the report.
