PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IN INDIA
The Pharmaceutical industry in India is the world's third-largest in terms of volume.
According to Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, the
total turnover of India's pharmaceuticals industry between 2008 and September 2009
was US$21.04 billion.[2] While the domestic market was worth US$12.26 billion. The
industry holds a market share of $14 billion in the United States.
According to Brand India Equity Foundation, the Indian pharmaceutical market is likely
to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14-17 per cent in between 2012-
16. India is now among the top five pharmaceutical emerging markets of the world.
Exports of pharmaceuticals products from India increased from US$6.23 billion in 2006–
07 to US$8.7 billion in 2008–09 a combined annual growth rate of 21.25%. According to
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in 2010, India joined among the league of top 10
global pharmaceuticals markets in terms of sales by 2020 with value reaching US$50
billion.
The government started to encourage the growth of drug manufacturing by Indian
companies in the early 1960s, and with the Patents Act in 1970.[5] However, economic
liberalization in 90s by the former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and the then
Finance Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh enabled the industry to become what it is today.
This patent act removed composition patents from food and drugs, and though it kept
process patents, these were shortened to a period of five to seven years.
The lack of patent protection made the Indian market undesirable to the multinational
companies that had dominated the market, and while they streamed out. Indian
companies carved a niche in both the Indian and world markets with their expertise in
reverse-engineering new processes for manufacturing drugs at low costs. Although
some of the larger companies have taken baby steps towards drug innovation, the
industry as a whole has been following this business model until the present.
India's biopharmaceutical industry clocked a 17 percent growth with revenues of Rs.
137 billion ($3 billion) in the 2009–10 financial year over the previous fiscal. Bio-pharma
was the biggest contributor generating 60 percent of the industry's growth at Rs. 88.29
billion, followed by bio-services at Rs. 26.39 billion and bio-agri at Rs. 19.36 billion.
In 2013, there were 4,655 pharmaceutical manufacturing plants in all of India,
employing over 345 thousand workers.
PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY TODAY
The number of purely Indian pharma companies is fairly less. Indian pharma industry is
mainly operated as well as controlled by dominant foreign companies having
subsidiaries in India due to availability of cheap labor in India at lowest cost. In 2002,
over 20,000 registered drug manufacturers in India sold $9 billion worth of formulations
and bulk drugs. 85% of these formulations were sold in India while over 60% of the bulk
drugs were exported, mostly to the United States and Russia. Most of the players in the
market are small-to-medium enterprises; 250 of the largest companies control 70% of
the Indian market.[9] [10]Thanks to the 1970 Patent Act, multinationals represent only
35% of the market, down from 70% thirty years ago.
Most pharma companies operating in India, even the multinationals, employ Indians
almost exclusively from the lowest ranks to high level management. Homegrown
pharmaceuticals, like many other businesses in India, are often a mix of public and
private enterprise.
In terms of the global market, India currently holds a modest 1–2% share, but it has
been growing at approximately 10% per year. India gained its foothold on the global
scene with its innovatively engineered generic drugs and active pharmaceutical
ingredients (API), and it is now seeking to become a major player in outsourced clinical
research as well as contract manufacturing and research. There are 74 US FDA-
approved manufacturing facilities in India, more than in any other country outside the
U.S, and in 2005, almost 20% of all Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDA) to the
FDA are expected to be filed by Indian companies. Growth in other fields
notwithstanding, generics are still a large part of the picture. London research company
Global Insight estimates that India’s share of the global generics market will have risen
from 4% to 33% by 2007. The Indian pharmaceutical industry has become the third
largest producer in the world and is poised to grow into an industry of $20 billion in 2015
from the current turnover of $12 billion.
Product development:Indian companies are also starting to adapt their product
development processes to the new environment. For years, firms have made their ways
into the global market by researching generic competitors to patented drugs and
following up with litigation to challenge the patent. This approach remains untouched by
the new patent regime and looks to increase in the future. However, those that can
afford it have set their sights on an even higher goal: new molecule discovery. Although
the initial investment is huge, companies are lured by the promise of hefty profit margins
and has a legitimate competitor in the global industry. Local firms have slowly been
investing more money into their R&D programs or have formed alliances to tap into
these opportunities.

Pharmaceutical industry in india

  • 2. PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY IN INDIA The Pharmaceutical industry in India is the world's third-largest in terms of volume. According to Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, the total turnover of India's pharmaceuticals industry between 2008 and September 2009 was US$21.04 billion.[2] While the domestic market was worth US$12.26 billion. The industry holds a market share of $14 billion in the United States. According to Brand India Equity Foundation, the Indian pharmaceutical market is likely to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14-17 per cent in between 2012- 16. India is now among the top five pharmaceutical emerging markets of the world. Exports of pharmaceuticals products from India increased from US$6.23 billion in 2006– 07 to US$8.7 billion in 2008–09 a combined annual growth rate of 21.25%. According to PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) in 2010, India joined among the league of top 10 global pharmaceuticals markets in terms of sales by 2020 with value reaching US$50 billion. The government started to encourage the growth of drug manufacturing by Indian companies in the early 1960s, and with the Patents Act in 1970.[5] However, economic liberalization in 90s by the former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao and the then Finance Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh enabled the industry to become what it is today. This patent act removed composition patents from food and drugs, and though it kept process patents, these were shortened to a period of five to seven years. The lack of patent protection made the Indian market undesirable to the multinational companies that had dominated the market, and while they streamed out. Indian companies carved a niche in both the Indian and world markets with their expertise in reverse-engineering new processes for manufacturing drugs at low costs. Although some of the larger companies have taken baby steps towards drug innovation, the industry as a whole has been following this business model until the present. India's biopharmaceutical industry clocked a 17 percent growth with revenues of Rs. 137 billion ($3 billion) in the 2009–10 financial year over the previous fiscal. Bio-pharma was the biggest contributor generating 60 percent of the industry's growth at Rs. 88.29 billion, followed by bio-services at Rs. 26.39 billion and bio-agri at Rs. 19.36 billion. In 2013, there were 4,655 pharmaceutical manufacturing plants in all of India, employing over 345 thousand workers.
  • 3. PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY TODAY The number of purely Indian pharma companies is fairly less. Indian pharma industry is mainly operated as well as controlled by dominant foreign companies having subsidiaries in India due to availability of cheap labor in India at lowest cost. In 2002, over 20,000 registered drug manufacturers in India sold $9 billion worth of formulations and bulk drugs. 85% of these formulations were sold in India while over 60% of the bulk drugs were exported, mostly to the United States and Russia. Most of the players in the market are small-to-medium enterprises; 250 of the largest companies control 70% of the Indian market.[9] [10]Thanks to the 1970 Patent Act, multinationals represent only 35% of the market, down from 70% thirty years ago. Most pharma companies operating in India, even the multinationals, employ Indians almost exclusively from the lowest ranks to high level management. Homegrown pharmaceuticals, like many other businesses in India, are often a mix of public and private enterprise. In terms of the global market, India currently holds a modest 1–2% share, but it has been growing at approximately 10% per year. India gained its foothold on the global scene with its innovatively engineered generic drugs and active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), and it is now seeking to become a major player in outsourced clinical research as well as contract manufacturing and research. There are 74 US FDA- approved manufacturing facilities in India, more than in any other country outside the U.S, and in 2005, almost 20% of all Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDA) to the FDA are expected to be filed by Indian companies. Growth in other fields notwithstanding, generics are still a large part of the picture. London research company Global Insight estimates that India’s share of the global generics market will have risen from 4% to 33% by 2007. The Indian pharmaceutical industry has become the third largest producer in the world and is poised to grow into an industry of $20 billion in 2015 from the current turnover of $12 billion. Product development:Indian companies are also starting to adapt their product development processes to the new environment. For years, firms have made their ways into the global market by researching generic competitors to patented drugs and following up with litigation to challenge the patent. This approach remains untouched by the new patent regime and looks to increase in the future. However, those that can afford it have set their sights on an even higher goal: new molecule discovery. Although the initial investment is huge, companies are lured by the promise of hefty profit margins and has a legitimate competitor in the global industry. Local firms have slowly been investing more money into their R&D programs or have formed alliances to tap into these opportunities.
