Brazil spent 10.8% of its GDP on both retail and hospital prescribed pharmaceuticals in 2009, reflecting the government’s changing priorities, prioritizing healthcare including initiatives to expand access to medicines.

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 for investment from both multinational and domestic companies. Big Pharma players are gaining a stronger presence through M&A, expanding operations, and new product launches.
