Career Opportunities - INDIA

Pharmaceutical Market in Terms

Globally, India ranks 3rd in the pharmaceutical market in terms of volume and 14th in terms of value. 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.

The number of purely Indian pharma companies is fairly low.

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.
