Best list of Pharmaceutical companies in Kazakhstan 2022

The Pharmaceutical companies in Kazakhstan have shown positive dynamics over the years. In the first 9 months of last year, the finished drug market size grew to KZT 460 billion (US$1 billion), a 22% year-on-year increase.

According to the state pharmaceutical industry development program, the government’s priority task was to supply 50% of the market with locally produced medicines and healthcare products by 2018.

To achieve this goal, modernization of existing pharmaceutical production facilities and construction of new ones were planned.

Overview of the Pharmaceutical companies in Kazakhstan

In January 2014, Kazakhstan adopted the international GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards for drug manufacturing.

There are currently 112 pharmaceutical manufacturers in Kazakhstan, seven of which are GMP certified.

Entry into the Eurasian Economic Customs Union (EAEU) has impacted the pharmaceutical market as customs tariffs on medicines imported into CU member countries have increased from zero to 5,712 depending on the type of medicine.

This local production aims to focus on a broad generic niche, accounting for 85% of the total market.

Major Sub-Sectors

The pharmaceutical market is divided almost equally into two main segments: government purchases and retail sales.

Government procurement of pharmaceuticals is carried out through calls for tender from the regional and municipal health authorities.

A government-funded program funds government procurement of diabetes and cancer drugs. In 2009, the Ministry of Health established SKPharmatsiya LLP as the sole distributor for the supply of pharmaceutical products to government healthcare institutions.

The share of medicines purchased by the state through the single-vendor system has increased, reaching 95% in 2018. The remaining 5% of medicines are purchased directly from hospitals and consist mainly of less commonly used items. In 2018, the sole distributor purchased approximately $580 million worth of drugs.

US companies producing the following pharmaceutical products have great prospects in Kazakhstan:

  • vaccines and other immunobiological drugs for population immunoprophylaxis;
  • Antidiabetics;
  • cancer drugs;
  • Antibacterial drugs;

Medicines and dialyzers and medical supplies for patients with renal insufficiency and kidney transplant patients.

Typically, foreign suppliers participate in government-funded tenders through their local distributors.

Challenges for the Kazakhstan pharmaceutical sector

The technological level of pharmaceutical manufacturing companies in Kazakhstan is not high. Another problem is the lack of training and professional qualifications due to the lack of staff.

There are 112 pharmaceutical manufacturers in Kazakhstan, but not a single national company produces its products.

However, the republic has a significant scientific base in the development and implementation of more than 50 new original medicinal products in pharmaceutical production.

One of the limiting factors for the implementation of the developments of the Kazakh scientists is the lack of pilot production similar to the factory laboratories that existed so far.

On a larger scale, the pharmaceutical cluster created based on MNPH “Phytochemistry” and the Karaganda Pharmaceutical Plant, uniting 17 Kazakh pharmaceutical companies in the form of a consortium, will facilitate a solution for further development of the industry.

The cluster enables the efficient and rational introduction of R&D results and innovative technologies into pharmaceutical production, as well as the commercialization of scientific achievements and the training of qualified specialists, and ensures the effective participation of the cluster companies in the value creation of the pharmaceutical industry.
