THE PHARMACEUTICAL MARKET: BRAZIL - REVIEW
The Brazilian pharmaceutical market is the third largest in the Americas region, behind the USA and Canada; it ranks first in the Latin American region. Pharmaceutical demand will continue to rise, fuelled by increasing disposable income, therefore the market outlook is positive for the 2011-2016 period. Competition among the five leading pharmacy chains is fierce, and the sector has been consolidated by a recent wave of mergers. In September 2011, Drogaria Sao Paulo, the leader in the state of Sao Paulo, and Drogarias Pacheco, the leader in Rio de Janeiro, announced a merger, creating what will be the largest pharmacy chain in Brazil, DPSP. This merger took place after the merger between Drogasil and Droga Raia, announced in August 2011, creating the second largest pharmacy chain, Raia Drogasil.
Generics are expected to have a pharmacy market share of 20.0% by value and 25.0% by volume in 2011. Major developments in 2011 include Aspen's acquisition of six medicaments owned by a local company in August 2011; Prazzi-Donaduzzi's plans to increase production, announced in July 2011; a distribution agreement between Novartis' Sandoz and Sanofi's Medley, valid from June 2011; and Stride Arcolab's joint-venture with a local company, announced in January 2011. Major developments in 2009-2010 included Pfizer's purchase of 40.0% of Teuto in October 2010, Valeant's two acquisitions in May 2010 and April 2010, Sanofi's acquisition of Medley in 2009, and Hypermarcas acquisition of Neo Quimica in 2009. As a result, multinationals have increased their pharmacy market share and they represented 40.0% of the total in 2010.
Local producers have increased their investments to strengthen their position. Ache, which lost the race to acquire Mantecorp but acquired 50.0% of Melcon in November 2010, has tried to form a joint-venture with GlaxoSmithKline in 2011, but this has been aborted. Biolab established an R&D unit in 2010. Cristalia signed an agreement to purchase an Argentine company in September 2011. Additionally, the company signed a joint-venture with Eurofarma to launch Supera in August 2011. EMS has announced investments of R$360.0 million (US$205.3 million) in three new manufacturing plants. Eurofarma announced the acquisition of Segmenta in December 2010. The company also invested R$450.0 million (US$233.2 million) in its manufacturing complex in 2010. Additionally, Eurofarma strengthened its international position in 2009-2010. Hypermarcas reorganised its business units in August 2011, following a number of recent acquisitions, the most notable being that of Mantecorp.
ANVISA published a new regulation for biologic products in December 2010. Several local companies have recently announced plans to strengthen their capabilities: Biomm plans to start the construction of an insulin plant in 2012; Halex Istar inaugurared a manufacturing unit for the production of sera in September 2011; and Hebron, which inaugurated a subsidiary in the USA in August 2011, plans to start the construction of a haemoderivatives manufacturing plant in 2012. In September 2011, EMS also signed a product licensing agreement with the South Korean company ISU ABXIS. Foreign companies have also showed interest in the biologic market. Amgen, for example, acquired a local producer in April 2011, and reacquired a number of products previously licensed to Mantercorp, which was acquired by Hypermarcas in January 2011. Novartis, via Sandoz, plans to launch the biosimilar Omnitrope in 2011.
