Why Visit

Why Middle East & Africa?

  • The pharmaceutical market in MENA is worth $31.8 billion in 2018 (accounting for 4% of the global pharma market), and is forecast to grow with a compound annual growth rate of 6.9% to $41.5 billion until 2022
  • The scale of the Middle Eastern & African pharma market, its opportunities and complexities, its need for a platform that can help to facilitate connections amongst regional and multinational businesses, calls for a unique event to bring the industry together.
  • With strong government investments in innovative medicine and as a market driven by under-served medical needs and increased awareness, the United Arab Emirates has become a hub for the region’s pharma market.
