This study provides a detailed analysis that includes market overview, market engineering measurements, revenue forecasts, competitive analysis, and key trends for the pharmaceutical industry in Ghana and Nigeria.

Key Findings

  • Although the oncology therapeutic segment accounted for the smallest revenue share in 2013, it is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period, given the increasing awareness about cancer in Ghana and Nigeria.
  • The cardiovascular and diabetes therapeutic segments are also projected to witness high growth rates during the forecast period as a result of increasing adoption of western lifestyle, driving the demand for consumption of chronic drugs.
  • The continuous burden of anti-infectives, including malaria, tuberculosis (TB), and HIV/AIDS in West Africa is expected to be the major growth driver for this industry.
  • The increased prevalence of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as hypertension, diabetes, and cancer in Ghana and Nigeria is expected to have a high impact on the growth of the total pharmaceutical industry as the demand for chronic prescription therapy for these diseases rises.
  • The judicious efforts of the Food and Drugs Board (FDB) (Ghana) and National Agency for Food (NAFDAC) (Nigeria) to control parallel trading and imports of counterfeit drugs are expected to contribute to the growth of the legitimate pharmaceutical industry in Ghana and Nigeria.
