However, in line with the World Bank’s Logistics Performance Index (LPI), in 2018, Sub-Saharan Africa achieved a score of 2.45 on a scale of 1-5, with the highest being 5. Hence, this implies a grave need for better infrastructure & enhanced Logistics services across the countries for all the sectors, especially healthcare, in the coming years. The African continent, as a whole, has been incapable of catering to its pharmaceutical demand from its domestic production. Moreover, some countries have been developing their capabilities lately and are gradually moving towards exporting their pharmaceutical products, while others have to import to satisfy their domestic demand.

Further, the region has some trade agreements with Europe & North America to boost its imports & exports activities, which have also affected the pharmaceutical industry & the pharmaceutical logistics market of Africa. According to UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization), the COVID-19 pandemic drew attention to vulnerable parts of the region, owing to their insufficient pharmaceutical manufacturing. The region imports about 94% of its pharmaceutical needs from around the globe. Further, China & India have been the major exporters of pharmaceutical products to the region.
