The population of South Africa in 2015 was 54.96 million, having grown at a CAGR of 2% from 2008. In 2011, the government introduced the National Health Insurance (NHI) policy to promote the pharmaceutical market. To increase the growth rate of the pharmaceutical industry, the government also introduced the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA). Through SAHPRA, the government aims to increase the pace of the drug approval process, while maintaining the highest possible quality standards.

In 2015, the government spent 0.59% of GDP in 2015 on R&D on medical and health science and exported $2.31 billion of pharmaceutical products. The pharmaceutical market in South Africa was worth $5.16 billion in 2015 and is projected to reach $7.28 billion by 2020, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 7%. The medical device market was valued at $1.8 billion in 2015 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% to $2.19 billion by 2020.
