Over 4000 pharma trade professionals from across the region including Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and north African countries like Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia are expected to visit the show.

Promising market of
Jordan and West Asian region:

The growth of the pharmaceutical market in this region is driven by several demographic factors like rapidly changing population dynamics, where populations are expanding, but also ageing. Government policy is also encouraging local manufacturing of drugs, as imports currently outweigh exports. In addition, the rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases and rising healthcare costs are likely to attract foreign investment into the continent, as well as the further development of domestic manufacturing capabilities.

Jordan is currently the only country in the Middle East with a positive pharmaceutical manufacturing trade balance, as it has a well-established industry and many years of experience, exporting reportedly 70% of its pharmaceutical produce, with a generic penetration of over 50% in its market.

Lebanon is considered a hub for high-quality healthcare services in the Middle East. The market size of the pharmaceutical sector stood at USD 1.82 billion in 2017 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5% to reach 2.3 USD billion in 2022-23. The number of pharmaceutical factories in Syria has reached 63, producing 5700 types of products. Pharmaceutical industry has become one of the most important pillars of economic and social development in Syria. Iraq's pharmaceutical market is currently worth around $3-4 billion; according to Business Monitor International, the Iraqi pharmaceutical market is growing at a rate of about 10 to 15 percent per year. The MOH has registered 8,600 trade drugs, and Iraq has 28 national pharmaceutical companies.
