The sector has seen a development supported with a level of performance and expertise recognized by the World Health Organization. Indeed, the conformity of production of the sector to international quality standards, including GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), allowed him to export between 8 and 10% of its production to European, Arab and African countries.

These companies, which now cover 70% of domestic demand, consent, since 1998, massive investments valued at nearly 300 million dirhams a year for their development needs and upgrade.
The private pharmaceutical sector ranked second in Africa, with the production of a wide range of products obeying the international quality standards. The national drug market weighs nearly 12 billion dirhams, of which about 15% for the public sector. For its part, the research mobilizes about 13,000 faculty members to 1,250 publications per year.
