Market research firm IBM forecasts that the entire scale of Vietnamese pharmaceutical industry could reach USD7.7 billion by 2021 and up to USD16.1 billion by 2026. The compound growth rate can reach 11%. According to IQVIA, total value of pharmaceutical products consumed in Vietnam will continue growing in 2021, estimated at VND123.6 trillion (an increase of about 8.0% compared to the same period in 2020).

This is a fiscal space for new suppliers, including Vietnam, to increase their contribution to the global market. In the domestic pharmaceutical industry development program to 2030 with a vision to 2045, the Vietnamese Government also sets a pharmaceutical product export target worth USD1 billion by 2030 and the whole pharmaceutical industry will contribute USD20 billion into the country's GDP by 2045.
