The medicine tender market in Bulgaria is a significant part of the healthcare system, with a total size of approximately €500 million. Public hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare institutions regularly organize tenders to procure medicines, medical supplies, and equipment from various suppliers. These tenders are usually awarded based on criteria such as price, quality, and delivery time. The market is highly competitive, with both local and international suppliers participating in the tenders. The Bulgarian government has been implementing measures to increase transparency and reduce corruption in the tendering process, which is expected to further boost market growth.
According to a report by the Bulgarian Ministry of Health published in 2020, the largest volume of medicines procured through tenders were for drugs used to treat cardiovascular diseases, followed by drugs for the nervous system, and drugs for the digestive system. In terms of value, the report stated that the most expensive drugs purchased through tenders were those used in the treatment of cancer.
