Growth of Indian Pharmaceuticals Sector

Pharmaceutical industry falls under the broader umbrella of Life Sciences. Pharmaceutical industry is further classified into five sub-segments - Domestic Formulation Companies, Export Oriented Formulation Companies, API Manufacturers, Contract Manufacturing of Formulations, and Nutraceuticals Products. Apart from core sub segments, Pharmaceutical is affected by Biopharmaceuticals and Contract research. Currently, the Indian pharmaceuticals sector ranks third globally in terms of volume sales and 10th, in terms of value. With the evolution of the sector, the boundaries between these sub-sectors are getting blurred. Biotech?s are increasingly catering to pharma clients, while pharma companies now have biotech products in their fold.

Understanding any one element necessitates understanding the entire spectrum. Indian pharmaceuticals sector has increasingly demonstrated growth in mid-teens over the last few years- inherent nature makes it recession proof. The pharmaceuticals sector presents diverse and lucrative opportunities for both domestic and foreign multinational companies.

The sector is expected to reach US$60 billion in 2017 (CAGR of 18 percent) whereas the industry size is expected to reach of US$100 billion by 2020, thereby employing 1.5 million people in the sector by 2015, 1.898 million by 2018 and 2.464 million by 2022.
