BMI View:
With structurally higher prices than many regional markets and quickly rising pharmaceutical onsumption, Belgium will continue to present a high level of potential reward to drugmaker. Notably, a distinct lack of price transparency within the pharmaceutical value chain will combine with patient and prescriber bias towards patented drugs to hamper initiatives that seek to reduce public sector pharmaceutical reimbursement spending. However, an increasingly credible threat of domestic terrorism and the destabilising potential of Flemish separatism will weigh on the country's risk profile, increasing the
costs and administrative burden borne by investors.

- Pharmaceuticals: From EUR5.78bn (USD7.75bn) in 2014 to EUR5.80bn (USD6.38bn) in 2015; 0.24% in local currency terms and -17.7% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised upwards from previous quarter.
- Healthcare: From EUR43.87bn (USD58.77bn) in 2014 to EUR44.96bn (USD49.46bn) 2015; +2.5% in local currency terms and -15.8% in US dollar terms. Forecast revised upwards from previous quarter.
