London, UK (PRWEB) June 04, 2012
With its fast-growing, young population and projected pharmaceutical sales in excess of $20 billion in 2014, countries in the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) represent a great opportunity for Pharma.
However, with regional marketing practices, uncertain production values of locally manufactured generics and a huge diversity in healthcare delivery across ten nations of varying income levels, there are also great challenges.
Despite the disadvantages large multinationals face, major pharmaceutical companies are diving into the region, focusing on revenue from new chemical entities and developing ‘branded’ generics as key investments.
