Cover Story Alpen Capital recently announced the publication of its GCC Healthcare Industry report, which covers the recent trends, growth drivers, and challenges in the industry, along with Alpen Capital's outlook until 2022. The report also profiles some of the prominent healthcare companies in the region, highlighting their financial and valuation metrics. “GCC healthcare industry continues to offer a wide gamut of investment oppor tunities. Though traditionally regional governments played an instrumental role in building the sector, shrinking oil revenues have slowed spending. At the same time, the role of private sector is increasing, encouraged by government incentives, mandatory health insurance and other reforms. Given the changing demographic and epidemiological structure, mandatory health insurance, and government initiatives to encourage private sector participation, we expect to see steady growth in private sector investments in the healthcare industry,” says Sameena Ahmad, Managing Director, Alpen Capital (ME Ltd). “Even though regional governments continue to shoulder a sizeable part of the healthcare expenditure, in the backdrop of budget deficits, the importance of private sector participation is being widely discussed across the GCC nations. With increasing opportunities for the private sector, the healthcare industry is witnessing a surge in mergers and acquisitions. The inorganic route is being adopted by new players to enter the market and by existing providers to expand market share, physician practices and medical capabilities,” adds Krishna Dhanak, Executive Director, Alpen Capital (ME) Ltd. 07
