Currently, the Indian pharma market is valued at around USD 50 billion, out of which almost USD 25 billion constitutes the exports.

A roundtable of Industry CEOs during the 15th edition of CPHI & PMEC India, held on Tuesday, emphasized the need of government support to induce advance technology to boost the domestic pharma sector and reduce dependence on China.

During the CEO’s Roundtable, the Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of companies, including those from RPG Life Science and Fermenta Biotech, also discussed ways to shift the focus of the domestic industry from volume to value.

As per reports, the Industry also highlighted the need to set up a separate ministry for the pharma sector to encourage domestic producers and decrease Chinese imports.
