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. Biotechnologists are increasingly catering to pharma clients, while pharma companies now have biotech products in their fold.
