CPhI Russia 2015 moves to Moscow as pharma sector continues to expand

Event is integral to regional growth as government seeks to boost domestic manufacturing production

CPhI Russia @ IPhEB, organised by UBM EMEA, returns for the third consecutive year, taking place at JSC VDNH (VVC), Moscow, 27-29 April 2015. This year, CPhI Russia @ IPhEB co-locates with P-MEC and InnoPack, as well as new additions Food ingredients (Fi) and Health ingredients Russia (Hi).


CPhI Russia @ IPhEB continues to expand year-on-year, keeping pace with the industry’s growth and providing a large, varied portfolio for attendees. In 2015, the six-in-one event moves to the nation’s capital and expands to a full three-day event. It is now the central hub for exhibitors and attendees within the region, providing a vital platform where pharma executives can connect, build relationships and enhance their business opportunities.

Russia’s pharmaceutical market has been forecast to reach US$25bn by 2018 – it is currently increasing at an annual growth rate of 10%, making it one of the fastest growing markets in the world. The pharma market, in particular, has seen the benefits of Russia’s expanding economy and with increased government investment in healthcare, it is expected that the Russia pharmaceutical industry will see a sustained period of expansion over the next few years.


The country has attracted a strong base of international pharma companies – an overwhelming 76% of total pharmaceutical sales are attributed to imported drugs – with many more foreign manufacturers now looking to capitalise on this attractive market.


Russia’s government, which implemented a Pharma 2020 plan, is actively looking to boost the domestic pharma manufacturing base and meet the rising drug demand resulting from greater disposable incomes and an increasingly health conscious population. Government support has been a key driver of this thriving market. The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation is exhibiting at CPhI Russia @ IPhEB (stand 423) and is also providing its vital perspectives directly into the conference programme.
