Summary:The pharmaceutical market in Peru has doubled in recent years and contains public and private markets. The public market represents 70% of the total and the private market 30% as measured by units sold. But when measured by cost, public market is 30% and private market is 70%. The public market consists of three different sub-markets: 1) strategic medicines provided by the Peruvian state to all citizens like vaccines and others; 2) non strategic medicines, like most others provided by the public institutions; and 3) the critical sub-market, like oncologic medications, in which there is a high concentration of property that allows some companies to dominate the market.
