11/29/2019 Database Update: Pharmaceutical Drug Import to Russia (September 2019)

Between January and September 2019, Russia imported a little over 462 bln RUB worth of ready-made pharmaceutical drugs and 91.7 bln RUB worth of in-bulk drugs (customs clearance prices), which is monetary terms (rubles) 22.3% and 12.5% higher than that of the same period in 2018, respectively. The dynamics of the import of ready-made drugs are record-worthy.

11/29/2019 Database Update: API Import to Russia (September 2019)

Between January and September 2019, Russia imported 98.3 bln RUB worth of APIs (customs clearance prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 42% higher than that of the same period in 2018. This is the highest dynamics since the ruble devaluation in 2015, and the import volume of the first 9 months of 2019 exceeded the total import in 2018.

11/26/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmacy Chains (Q1 – Q3 2019)

This year, the rather modest dynamics in monetary terms (rubles) demonstrated by the Russian pharmaceutical retail was in fact positive only due to price increases. The dynamics in physical terms, especially of over-the-counter drugs and parapharmaceuticals, continues to drop, which has become nearly common. In addition to stagnating household incomes, the non-pharmacy segment, which systematically steals consumers from conventional pharmacies, is also a significant problem. Online marketplaces are actively increasing in number as well, and foreign players are also trending. In particular, American iHerb announced their plans to open an office in Moscow, which is hardly good news for the Russian pharmaceutical retail.

11/13/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmaceutical Distributors (Q1 — Q3 2019) November 13, 2019

The Russian pharmaceutical market is developing extremely unevenly in both individual market segments and specific product groups this year. Due to significant cash injections into the public sector, the dynamics in this segment is very different from that in the pharmaceutical retail.

10/29/2019 Database Update: Pharmaceutical Drug Production in Russia (September 2019)

Between January and September 2019, Russia manufactured 295 bln RUB worth of pharmaceutical drugs (manufacturers’ prices, VAT included), which is monetary terms (rubles) 22% higher than that in the same period in 2018. This is also the highest dynamics since 2016. The dynamics in physical terms (units) are +4.7%, or +4.2% if calculated in minimum dosage units (MDU). While these dynamics are far from those in 2016, these can still be considered high after the constant negative dynamics during 2017-2018.

9/26/2019 Database Update: Pharmaceutical Drug Production in Russia (August 2019)

Between January and August 2019, Russia produced 255.8 bln RUB worth of pharmaceutical drugs (manufacturers’ prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 20.2% higher than that of the same period in 2018. In physical terms, the dynamics are +4.5%, with the production volume of 2.83 bln units. If calculated in minimum dosage units (MDU), the dynamics are +3.5%, with the production volume of 47 bln MDUs.

9/24/2019 Database Update: Import of Veterinary Drugs, Feed Supplements, and APIs to Russia (July 2019)

Between January and July 2019, Russia imported 37.7 bln RUB worth of veterinary products (free circulation prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 0.1% lower than that of the same period in 2018. The negative dynamics are only due to the import of feed supplements dropping by 12.4%. However, the import of feed supplements is the leader in the volume of import in monetary terms with 19.2 bln RUB. The dynamics in physical terms (units) are only negative, -2.4%.

9/23/2019 Database Update: API Import to Russia (July 2019)

Between January and July 2019, Russia imported 69.5 bln RUB worth of APIs (free circulation prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 26.5% higher than that of the same period in 2018. As earlier, a significant price increase contributed to the high dynamics. In physical terms (tons), the dynamics are +4.5%, with the import volume of 7 thousand tons.

9/20/2019 Pharmaceutical Drug Import to Russia (July 2019)

In July 2019, Russia imported 61.5 bln RUB worth of ready-made pharmaceuticals (free circulation prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) +31.5% higher than that of July 2018 and the highest volume since August 2010. Higher dynamics were witnessed in June 2016. However, the dynamics in physical terms are only +7.3%, with the import volume of 183.3 bln units.

8/27/2019 Ranking of Russian Pharmaceutical Distributors (Q1 – Q2)

It is unlikely that by the end of this year the pharmaceutical wholesale will have seen any significant achievements or failures. As of yet, the market is only developing in terms of public procurement. The public procurement segment has always been a very specific area, with a limited circle of players and its own rules, which are also very vaguely worded. For example, that massive breakdown in trading due to difficulties in setting the initial maximum price of the contract.
