Global Healthcare and Pharma Market Highlights
- The rising inflation across many markets around the world has prompted policy makers to embrace measures to reduce inflation. In some instances (the UK is a case in point), resistance to policy sector worker calls for salary increases is triggering strike action and labor shortages which may adversely affect prescribing activity and contribute to waiting times for patients. Unaddressed inflation in API costs is also affecting profitability of pharmaceutical manufacturers, making them less willing to sell to market where the prices of finished pharmaceuticals are failing to keep up with the rise in production costs.

However, it remains to be seen if price hikes that are allowed will exceed the rate of inflation. In 2023, efforts to safeguard medicines supplies will continue, and some advanced markets are likely to offer pricing and reimbursement incentives to domestically produced medicines.
- In the US, the world’s largest pharmaceutical market, cost containment efforts would likely involve initiatives to boost use of biosimilars (with one major health plan already announcing plans to add biosimilar Humira to its formulary) and the implementation for the first time in the history of direct government price negotiation for selected Medicare medicines under the Inflation Reduction Act.
- Other initiatives will include reimbursement constraints and increased price pressure stemming from advances in health technology assessment (HTA) procedures (such as through the introduction of a cost effectiveness threshold in Brazil).
