Venezuela is one of the emerging pharmaceutical markets in South America, with a major dependence on imports. However, economic and political turmoil along with inefficient patent laws and drug pricing policies are major barriers. The value of the market was US$12.6 Billion in 2015, having increased from US$5.7 Billion in 2009, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.1%. Drug prices in Venezuela are considerably higher than the regional average of US$7.86; in 2016, the average drug price in Venezuela was US$21.95, which was the highest in the entire Latin America region.

Medical device market is also mainly dependent on imported products. The US is the major supplier for medical devices, although in recent times Cuba, Mexico and Brazil have replaced some of the US exports. Disposable healthcare items such as syringes, surgical cloths and hospital furniture are manufactured domestically.
