South Korea ranked 13th in the world pharmaceutical market in 2016. Both Western and Asian medicine are offered at over 80,000 healthcare centers throughout the country. The market is highly fragmented, with about 300 pharmaceutical companies and 1,800 wholesalers. According to the IMS Health Market Prognosis March 2017, the Korean pharmaceutical market is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.5% between 2016 and 2021.

There is an increasing demand for change and innovation in the South Korean healthcare environment surrounding its pharmaceutical industry. South Korea’s rapidly aging population, coupled with the government’s plans to expand National Health Insurance (NHI) coverage for four major chronic disease areas is expected to drive growing demands for healthcare services and drugs over the next five years. The government’s implementation of new policies such as the disclosure of big data is also expected to bring a seismic change in healthcare business and marketing.

Companies will face greater sales challenges as new regulatory measures take effect. The Health Insurance Review and Assessment Service (HIRA) and National Health Insurance Service (NHIS) play key roles in setting up reimbursement guidelines, sophisticated monitoring activities and pricing policy for medicines.
