The pharmaceuticals market in India, valued at $ 20 billion in 2015, is set to soar to $ 55 billion by 2020, representing an impressive compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.4 percent, according to the UK-based research and consulting firm GlobalData.

India’s rapidly growing generics market is the primary driver of the nation’s pharmaceutical sector, with sales expected to soar by nearly 84 percent to $ 26.1 billion in 2016. Generic drugs, with their low costs and easy accessibility, now dominate India’s pharmaceutical space, accounting for around 70 percent of the market.

Adam Dion, senior industry analyst, GlobalData, said, “India supplies 20 percent of global generic medicines in terms of export volume, making the country the largest provider of generic medicines globally. Indeed, Indian pharmaceutical companies are now exporting to countries like Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, Russia and Japan, and, according to India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry, the nation’s pharmaceutical export segment has more than doubled from $ 7.8 billion in 2008 to $ 16.5 billion in 2014.”

Another driver of India’s pharmaceutical sector is the potentially lucrative biosimilars market, which is expected to increase to $40 billion globally by 2020, as biologic treatments are introduced for diseases such as diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

“One company benefiting from its leading position in the biosimilars market is Dr Reddy’s. In 2007, Dr Reddy’s was the first to launch a biosimilar version to Roche’s cancer drug rituximab (Rituxan), and has four other biosimilars on the market. The company’s drug characterisation strategy and quality measures give Dr Reddy’s a significant competitive advantage that reduces the uncertainty of potential outcome differences when used in patients,” explained Dion.
