Overall, health expenditure as a percentage of GDP is increasing which reflects the fact that healthcare and access to treatment (and thus pharmaceutical spending) is an increasing priority for the government.

Intellectual property protection remains problematic for branded pharma, with issues associated with patent linkage, drawn-out patent reviews, conflict between the two agencies involved in assessing patent applications, and the fact that there is no set period of data exclusivity.

Strong market growth in conjunction with improving regulatory standards has led to Brazil becoming a hotbed of investment from both multinational and domestic companies. Big Pharma players are gaining a stronger presence through M&A, benefiting from strong brand image of the local manufacturers.
