SME Pharma Log on to Off-Patent Mart (India)

This article was originally published in PharmAsia News

Executive Summary

In the next few years, a number of small to medium size Indian pharmaceutical manufacturers will be jumping on the high-quality manufacturing bandwagon. Joining such giants as Ranbaxy and Dr Reddy's, companies setting up these facilities have their sights set on penetrating the stiffly regulated U.S. and European drug markets. In the next few years, a number of blockbuster drugs will be going off-patent, paving the way for Indian generics producers to swoop into the market. Currently, there are between 40 and 50 new facilities expected to be commissioned in the next year or so. These new plants will join more than 100 plants already certified by the U.S. FDA. Already 20 percent to 30 percent of active pharmaceutical ingredients for U.S. drugs are produced in India. That figure is expected to grow by 10 percent to 15 percent in the next several years. Companies with new facilities in the works include Bal Pharma, Paras Pharma, Venus Remedies, Syrya Organics and Chemicals, UnijulesLife Sciences, Centaur Pharma, Flamingo Pharma, Kemwell, Coral Labs, Ipca Labs, Poly Medicure, Twilight Likaka, RPG Life Sciences, Ankur Drugs, and Alpa Labs.
