The financial year 2017-18 marked resurgence in growth post the financial crisis. Higher investment spending, especially in the emerging markets, is pushing growth in the global economy. As a result, several countries are gradually returning to normal macroeconomic policies. However, the economic health in parts of Europe and the fiscal trends in some other countries is cause for concern and continue to impact the world economy. The forecast for the Indian economy is positive with growth expected to touch 7.4 per cent in the current fiscal year. Yet, constant inflation in the country is taking its toll and rising global commodity prices is only compounding the problem.

By 2020, India is likely to be among the top three pharmaceutical markets by incremental growth and 6th largest market globally in absolute size.

A growing trend was that more Indian pharmaceutical companies focused on semi-urban and rural markets for incremental growth opportunities. During the year, the industry also witnessed Indian Pharma companies selling out to the multinationals.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry is growing consistently and is expected to do so also in future. Quality of products will improve, as is evident from the recent publication of the new Indian Pharmacopeias and the activities of the Drugs Controller of India against "irrational combinations" and "counterfeits". We wish that these initiatives, which will lead to a safer healthcare environment for patients, will be followed up in a transparent and rational way. Over the past decade, pharmaceutical companies have entered a difficult period where shareholders, the market and regulators have created significant pressures for change within the industry. The core issues for most of drug companies are declining productivity of in-house R & D, patent expiration of number of block buster drugs, increasing legal and regulatory concern, and pricing issue. As a result larger pharmaceutical companies are shifting to new business model with greater outsourcing of discovery services, clinical research and manufacturing. Today Indian pharmaceutical Industry can look forward to the years to come, with great expectations. There are opportunities in expanding the range of generic products as more molecule come off patent, outsourcing, and above all, in focusing into drug discovery as more profits come from traditional plays. At the same time, the Indian Pharma Industry would have to contend with several challenges particularly the

? Effects of new product patent

? Drug price control

? Regulatory reforms

? Infrastructure development

? Quality management and

? Conformance to global standards.
