Life Science & Pharmaceuticals

The healthcare sector, working tirelessly to safeguard the health and well-being of millions on a daily basis, depends on the life-saving drugs produced by the pharmaceutical industry. Working with medical research professionals, laboratories, and universities, the pharma industry is constantly developing and testing new drugs to treat diseases previously thought to be incurable.

The global pharmaceutical manufacturing market was estimated at US $324 billion in 2020, with India’s market alone accounting for US $55 billion. In recent years, the Indian pharma sector has seen a healthy influx of foreign direct investment, including joint ventures, distribution, and co-development.
