    drugs hold the major share of the UAE
    pharmaceuticals market with revenue share of

    industry in the UAE. The pharmaceutical
    profession is defined as the preparation,
    composition, separation, manufacturing,
    packaging, selling, or distribution of any
    medicine or pharmaceutical preparation for the
    prevention of illness in human beings or animals.

  • A medical store is an establishment within the
    UAE the business purpose of which is the import,
    storage and wholesale distribution of medicine.
    The specific laws concerned with mandate
    conditions for pharmaceutical business, laws for
    importing, obtain a medical warehouse license,
    submission of necessary documents, and final
    registration steps are highlighted by the
    Ministry of Health. The steps to open the
    pharmacy are also regulated by the Ministry of
    Health which majorly requires a preliminary
    approval for the premises and other essential
    documents to prove qualification of the owner of
    pharmacy. The UAE grants patent for inventions
    that are novel, contains an inventive step and
    has industrial application. The UAE is a member
    of the Patent Co-Operation Treaty and the Paris
    Convention. It takes three to four years to
    receive a pharmaceutical patent in the UAE. There
    are fixed patent charges and official fees, and
    annuities for twenty years which patent holder
    needs to pay for holding the patent for years.
    Slashing drug prices by UAE government is majorly
    driving the pharmaceutical market in UAE. UAE

    impacted the revenue of the pharmaceutical
    companies in a negative manner and the market

    international players led to the increase in
    number of hospitals in the country and increased

    in the UAE over the years. World-class facilities
    in these hospitals which are attracting patients,
    who preferred overseas medical services, high
    inpatient and outpatient cost and high
    availability of advanced diagnostic and treatment
    options in these hospitals has led to the
    dominance of the private hospitals in the UAE
    market, in terms of revenue generation.

  • Additionally, rising number of outpatients in
    private hospitals acted as an additional factor
    in growth of private hospitals revenue. The major

    hospitals was multispecialty hospitals with
    market share of . However, the establishment of

    business from 2010 to 2015, increasing the

    Project, Burjeel Medical City, Dubai Health

    appointed by DHCC to accredit hospitals operating
