Life Sciences

The Indian Life Sciences sector is currently estimated at USD 34 billion and is expected to grow to an estimated USD 78 billion over the next few years.

India has a strong presence in generic drugs manufacturing, and is one of the largest exporters of generic drugs in the world. Outside the USA, India has the largest number of USA FDA approved manufacturing plants, reinforcing the perception that India is a quality producer of pharmaceutical products. Major multinational pharmaceutical companies have set up operations in India, offering their products to the burgeoning middle class. Indian companies, in turn, are going global and setting up operations in the USA, Europe, Africa and Japan.

With the growth in disposable incomes and changing lifestyles, there is a significant unmet demand for quality Life Sciences from the middle class in India. Large corporations have set up or are setting a large number of specialty hospitals to fill this void.
