CountryFocus: Healthcare, Regulatory and Reimbursement Landscape - Taiwan


In 2016, the pharmaceutical market of Taiwan was valued at an estimated US$2.42 Billion, and is projected to reach US$2.44 Billion in 2021. The pharmaceutical market grew at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 0.12% from 2009 to 2016. The government is taking various steps to ensure the growth of the pharmaceutical industry, and has proposed a budget of US$340m for turning Taiwan into an Asian Research and Development (R&D) center. According to the Act for the Development of Biotech and New Pharmaceuticals Industry, the government is providing incentives for new pharmaceutical companies, such as reductions in income tax.

Taiwanese market for medical devices is one of the largest in Asia due to the growing elderly population and consequent increase in demand for healthcare products and services. It was valued at US$1.66 Billion in 2009 and grew at a CAGR of 5% to US$2.27 Billion in 2016. By 2021, it is expected to reach US$2.95 Billion.

Taiwan has a compulsory NHI system that covers about 99% of the population (NHI, 2016). The second-generation NHI system was implemented in January 2013, and in July 2013 the name Bureau of NHI was changed to National Health Insurance Administration (NHIA). Owing to the reforms in the NHIA system, the NHIA no longer has a deficit in funding. The government is planning to initiate a third-generation NHI, which may take six to eight years to complete.

Taiwan plays a leading role as global trade and investment hub primarily due to its strategic location within the Asia-Pacific. With international shipping lanes, five free-trade zones, a modern financial sector and expertise in high-technology production, Taiwan is one of the world’s top destinations for investment in terms of ease of doing business, economic freedom, and competitiveness (US DoS, 2015).
