During FY16, the Indian pharmaceutical industry has performed significantly well. The industry’s top-line (top fifteen companies according to market cap) improved by 14.45% to Rs861.22bn in FY16 as compared to Rs752.50bn in FY15, backed by a healthy growth in the companies’ export revenues, especially from the US market.  Operating profit increased over 32% to Rs 258.93bn in FY16 as compared to Rs195.91bn in previous year, led by healthy growth in net sales. Profit after tax (PAT) (top fifteen companies according to market cap) grew 41% to Rs161.27bn as compared to Rs114bn in FY15 supported by healthy sales growth combined with an over 30% increase in operating profits. Among the top performers were Cipla posted a net profit of Rs117.35bn, followed by Lupin Rs 108.10bn and Dr Reddy’s Rs101.51bn.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry, the largest provider of cost-effective generic medicines to the developed world leads the  pharmaceutical exports to the world.  India has probably the largest number of USFDA approved pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities. The country is also the largest global provider of generic drugs, accounting for 20% of global exports in terms of volume. Branded generics constituted nearly 70-80% of the domestic market. India’s long-term prospects appear promising; the Indian pharmaceutical industry is likely to emerge among the top 10 global markets by value by 2020 (Source: PwC-CII).

Of late, consolidation has become an important characteristic of the Indian pharmaceutical market as the industry is highly fragmented.
