The Republic of Namibia represents one of the most diverse medical markets in the world largely because of the dominance of South Africa. With a population of 2.5 million and a GDP of US$ 10.70 billion, the Namibian pharmaceutical market (USD 300 mn), which is a prescription market presents a small, but potentially attractive market to Indian companies, particularly as a gateway to the Southern Africa region.
India’s export of Pharmaceuticals is to the tune of USD 30.13 mn during the year 2020-21 with a growth rate of 17% over 2019-20.
