Moldova Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare
BMI View: The Moldovan pharmaceutical market presents limited opportunities for investors in the short term, but with the country opening up to European free-trade zone, we expect the pharmaceutical market to feel the positive benefit of closer ties with the European Union. Moldova's economic outlook will continue to have a significant impact on the pharmaceutical market's growth trajectory over the forecast period.
Headline Expenditure Projections
Pharmaceuticals: MDL2.73bn (USD214mn) in 2013 to MDL2.9bn (USD226mn) in 2014; +5.7% in local currency terms and +5.4% in US dollar terms....
BMI View: The fixed broadband sector continues to outperform the mobile and fixed telephony sectors as huge investments in fibre optic network deployments are matched by strong demand for high speed internet connectivity and convergence services. This trend will continue for ost of our forecast period to 2018, although this could be counterbalanced by mobile broadband services following the roll out of 4G LTE services by the country's two biggest mobile operators. The demand for data services bodes well for telecoms service providers in Moldova which are hard-pressed by the decline in basic voice service revenues.
The mobile market grew by 3.9% q-o-q in Q314 and 4.4% y-o-y at the end of the same period to partially offset the market contraction in FY13.
