    1. 1. Pharmaceutical Industry
    2. 2. Overview The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs or pharmaceuticals licensed for use as medications. Pharmaceutical companies are allowed to deal in generic and/or brand medications and medical devices The Pharmaceutical industry has grown from mere US$ 0.3 billion turnover in 1980 to about US$ 13.22 billion in 2011-12. Globally, India ranks 3rd in terms of volume of production (10 per cent of global share) and 14th largest by value (1.5 per cent of global share). The reason for lower value share is the lowest cost of drugs in India ranging from 5 per cent to 50 per cent less as compared to developed countries The total turnover of India's pharmaceuticals industry between 2011 and 2012 was US$13.22 billion.
    3. 3. The various categories under pharmaceuticals are: Bulk Drugs (APIs) Drug Intermediates Drug Formulations Biotechnology Biological Products Herbal Products (Ayurveda, Siddha & Unani ) Medicinal Plants Homeopathy Nutraceuticals and Physiochemical Diagnostics Clinical Research Surgical
    4. 4. Along with Brazil & PR China, India has carved a niche for itself by being a top generic Pharma player. Major share of Indian Pharma exports going to highly developed western countries bears testimony to not only the excellent quality of Indian pharmaceuticals but also its price competitiveness. More than 50 per cent share of exports is by way of dosage forms. Indian companies are now seeking more Abbreviated New Drug Approvals (ANDAs) in USA in specialized segments like anti- infective, cardio vascular and central nervous system groups Around 15% of Indian Pharmaceutical scientists are in USA, hence good network
    5. 5. SWOT Analysis Strengths Cost Effective Strong Manufacturing Base Low cost of innovation, manufacturing and operations Availability of high quality skilled workforce. Low cost of skilled manpower and proven track record in design of high technology manufacturing devices Excellent marketing and distribution network Diverse ecosystem
    6. 6. Weakness Lack of coordination between industry and academia. Negligible expenditure on healthcare in the country. Manufacture of fake and low quality medicines Stringent pricing regulations affecting the profitability of pharma companies Presence of more unorganized players versus the organized ones, resulting in an increasingly competitive environment, characterized by stiff price competition.
    7. 7. Opportunities Increased export potential Opening of the health insurance sector and increase in per capita income - the growth drivers for the pharmaceutical industry Marketing tie ups with multinational companies to sell their products in domestic market. Immense scope to position India as a centre for international clinical trials. Key player in global pharmaceutical R&D. Export of generic drugs to developed markets
    8. 8. Threats Product patent regime is a major threat to domestic industry unless the industry takes up R&D initiative aggressively. Drug Price Control Order puts undue pressure on product prices, affecting the profitability of the pharmaceutical companies. The new MRP based excise duty regime threatens the business of smaller pharmaceutical companies. Other low-cost countries such as China and Israel affecting outsourcing demand for Indian pharmaceutical products Entry of foreign players (well equipped technology-based products) into the Indian market

    11. 11. Trends in Export The Pharmaceutical industry has grown from mere US $0.3 billion turnover in 1980 to about US$ 21.73 billion in 2011-12. The industry is making adequate returns from the domestic sales but bulk of its profits come from the export of generics and active pharmaceutical ingredients to the developed markets. The industry has been exporting more than half of its total production, which is estimated to be more than 20 billion dollars currently. In 2011, India exported $10.3 billion worth of pharmaceutical products, registering 17.5% growth over 2011. By March 2012, pharmaceutical exports from the country have touched a growth of 45%. The largest export destination continues to be the US, followed by the UK, Germany, South Africa, and Russia. Segment wise, generic drugs account for 58% of total exports, APIs account for 40% and traditional medicines account for the remaining 2%. The country’s commerce ministry has set an ambitious export target of $25 billion by 2013–2014.

    13. 13. Major Export Destinations India’s largest export destination for Pharma products is still the USA, followed by the UK, Germany, South Africa and Russia. More than 50 per cent share of exports is by way of dosage forms. The exports to US accounts for more than 40% of the total exports of pharmaceuticals from India. The trigger for the development of the generics market in the US came in the form of legislative action initiated in the first half of the 1980s . Europe is emerging as a key market and a potential growth driver. The size of its market in 2006 was US $14.2 billion with Germany, France, the UK and Italy accounting for more than 50% of the market. The governments in Europe are trying to reduce Healthcare costs by embracing generic drug companies. India has had a unique position among the countries in the developing world for it has a strong generic pharmaceutical industry, which has been able to provide medicines at prices that were amongst the lowest in the world.

    17. 17. Major Competitors of Pharmaceutical industry The domestic market is very competitive with a large number of players comprising of pure generics; branded generics, formulations, with varying degrees of combinations and permutations among large players and small players. The main anti-competitive issues in the pharmaceutical sector are centered on anti-competitive agreements and collusive practices along the supply and distribution chains. There was an international cartel of bulk vitamins present for quite some time and cost in India about US$25mn, in the 1990s, as a result of overcharging. Although no domestic cartel in pharmaceuticals have been detected so far. Most pharmacy owners in India are members of a trade association, All India Organization of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD).

    22. 22. Quality Standards Major Regulatory Bodies The Central Drug Standards and Control Organization (CDSCO) is located under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. It prescribes standards and measures for ensuring the safety, efficacy and quality of drugs, cosmetics, diagnostics and devices in the country; Regulates the market authorization of new drugs and clinical trials standards; supervises drug imports and approves licenses to manufacture. The National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA), instituted in 1997 under the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals, It fixes or revises the prices of decontrolled bulk drugs and formulations at judicious intervals; Periodically updates the list under price control through inclusion and exclusion of drugs in accordance with established guidelines It maintains data on production, exports and imports and market share of pharmaceutical firms and imparting inputs to Parliament in issues pertaining to drug pricing.
    23. 23. The main aspects of pharmaceutical regulation are thus divided between the above two ministries. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare - examines pharmaceutical issues within the larger context of public health Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers focuses on industrial policy. Other ministries Ministry of Environment and Forests, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Commerce and Industry Ministry of Science and Technology.
    24. 24. Various Acts governing the regulation of quality standards Drugs and Cosmetics Act of 1940 and Rules 1945 regulates drug manufacturing, quality and marketing. Pharmacy Act of 1948, The Drugs and Magic Remedies Act of 1954 Drug Prices Control Order (DPCO) 1995 Various other policies instituted by the Department of Chemicals and Petrochemicals.

    31. 31. Problems faced by the Exporter Internal factors – Local Low investments in innovative R&D continue to be a major problem for exporters of Indian pharmaceutical industry Majority of companies lack the ability to compete with MNCs for New Drug Discovery, Research and commercialization of molecules on a worldwide basis due to lack of resources The country has at times shown inadequate regulatory framework or compliance and enforcement regime, reflected in occurrences such a production of spurious or low quality drugs Rapidly increasing costs of skilled manpower such as scientists/ regulatory compliance personnel / pharmaceutical lawyers/ international business development personnel is pushing up the cost of innovation.
    32. 32. International Threats China’s massive expansion of Bulk Drug industry is flooding Asian and African countries. Russia’s self sufficiency in the Pharmaceutical sector. China’s expansion into formulations caused a decline in the exports to Vietnam in FY2011. A few countries like Argentina, Bangladesh, Egypt and Gulf countries do not recognize India as a major manufacturing hub. Exporter to Brazil and Mexico complains about recent increase in Import Tax to 14%, prohibitive registration charges of about $20,000 for each product and waiting period of 18 months. Nigeria has banned some specific drugs and formulations to protect domestic industry. Countries in Europe have started importing Hops (Humulus Lupulus Extract).
