WHAT’S INSIDE

SECTOR REVIEW

Proponents of Saudi Arabia's healthcare sector highlight strong demographics and growing demand for private healthcare providers, but this quarter we provide a closer examination of these claims. This quarter, we provide subscribers with insider insights on the major shortfalls in the Saudi healthcare market, including anxiety over poor management of state budgets and forecasts about what overheads will be going up in the coming year. We also take a look at the bullish pharmaceuticals sector and profile the King Faisal Specialist Hospitals & Research Center, which is facing privatization.

TBY ANALYTICS

This quarter, interviewees from across the Kingdom shared their thoughts on the key advantages and challenges of doing business in Saudi Arabia's healthcare market. Most players are keen to either transform or assist efforts to transform into more corporate entities able to deliver both quality care and a strong bottom line. We gauge optimism surrounding privatization and ongoing efforts to diversify the sector away from public-sector domination.

PEOPLE TO WATCH

This quarter, we are focusing on three individuals behind transformative digitalization campaigns in Saudi Arabia's healthcare sector. These three individuals are driven entrepreneurs that are bringing novel solutions and app-based technologies to the market. All three of the individuals featured this quarter have apps that they believe have the potential to scale up and ultimately cater to all Arab-speaking markets.

COMPANIES TO WATCH

This quarter TBY Intelligence has highlighted three companies from three different sub-sectors displaying equal enthusiasm to take advantage of opportunities inherent in privatization efforts. As Saudi Arabia looks to privatize more of its healthcare assets these three companies are positioning themselves to take up the responsibility, providing services to the pharmaceuticals, buying up assets, and providing IT and data management solutions.
