Between January and November 2020, Russia produced RUB 450.7 bln worth of pharmaceutical drugs (manufacturer’s prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 17.4% higher than in 2019. The production volume in physical terms (units) amounts to 4.4 bln units, with the growth rate of +6.5%. If calculated in minimum dosage units (MDU), the growth rate is higher (+10.7%) and the production volume is 74.6 bln MDUs.

Between January and October 2020, Russia imported RUB 134.1 bln worth of APIs (customs clearance and VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 20% higher than in 2019. The import volume in physical terms (tons) amounted to 12.1 thousand tons, with the growth rate of +12%.

12/9/2020 Pharmaceutical Drug Import to Russia (October 2020)

Between January and October 2020, Russia imported RUB 404 bln worth of ready-made pharmaceutical drugs (customs clearance and VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 29.6% lower than in 2019. That is clearly the high base effect, since back in October 2019 the importers were hard at work, preparing for the launch of the labeling system by actively stocking up the warehouses; the import volumes were 2-3 times higher than usual. The growth rates of the in-bulk import are still positive, although only +2.2%, with the import volume of RUB 110.8 bln.

Between January and September 2020, Russia exported RUB 40.2 bln worth of ready-made pharmaceutical drugs (customs duties included), which is virtually comparable of the total export volume in 2018. The dynamics in monetary terms (rubles) are as high as +23.3%. The export volume in physical terms amounts to 0.83 bln units, with the dynamics of +27.5%.

Between January and October 2020, Russia manufactured RUB 399.1 bln worth of pharmaceutical drugs (manufacturer’s prices, VAT included), which is in monetary terms (rubles) 17% higher than in 2019. These dynamics are significantly lower, compared to the dynamics of the period between Q1 and Q3. The dynamics in physical terms are even less promising: +12.4% in units and +15.2% in minimum dosage units (MDU). The production volume in physical terms amounts to 4 bln units, or 68.4 bln MDUs.

11/26/2020 Ranking of Russian Pharmacy Chains (Q1 – Q3 2020)

It seems that the moment of truth will come to the Russian pharmaceutical retail market next year. After several years of relatively stable development and a number of waves of rush demand in 2020, 2021 may become a period of a most severe crisis, making all the current problems associated with the launch of the labeling system seem like mere trifles.

11/23/2020 Ranking of Russian Pharmaceutical Distributors (Q1 – Q3 2020)

The incidence of COVID-19 has been going up since September, with November bringing records one after another, both in large cities and in Russia as a whole. Naturally, the demand for certain “corona-specific” drugs has also been increasing. With that more or less predicted, the market participants at all stages of commodity distribution, including wholesale, were preparing for an increase in morbidity associated with the end of the vacation season and the start of the school year when the labeling system altered the situation.
