This report covers the market developments in Q4/2014, FY 2014 and the data available as of February 2015.

The pharmaceutical sales performed above market expectations and increased at double-digit annual pace in Q4/2014 in RON terms. Sales of prescription based medicines (partly or fully subsidized) advanced by 9.6% y/y to RON2.4bn (EUR530mn), while OTC drug sales surged by 19.5% y/y over the quarter. Sales through hospitals also increased by 13.8% y/y in Q4.

In full year 2014, the pharma market accelerated y/y growth compared to the marginal 0.3% y/y advance in 2013 (in local currency), mainly driven by the good performance in Q4. Nonetheless, even though the pharmaceutical sales value increased on an annual basis in 2014, the profitability of pharmaceutical companies deteriorated notably last year, according to market data.

In 2015, pharmaceutical sales are expected to grow by 3.5% y/y, propped by the demand for treatment in areas that are insufficiently covered. On the demand side, the prospects indeed look optimistic, yet the market's future performance is also influenced by factors such as regulatory measures and public spending, which maintain a high degree of volatility.

Key points:

oPharmaceutical sales rise y/y in EUR, RON terms in Q4/2014, driving upwards FY performance

oPharma market value is expected to maintain positive annual performance in 2015

oPharmaceutical imports, exports decline in Jan-Oct 2014

oPharmaceutical retail market value advances 1.7% y/y in 2014, to continue rising this year-study

oZentiva reports double-digit y/y hike of revenues in 2014, profit, driven by rising exports, higher production capacity

oSensiblu launches new pharmacy brand targeting low income customers
