Minimal impact of Covid 2.0 on the Indian pharma industry; ICRA estimates FY22 growth at 7-9%

Published on: 4:20 pm

  • The impact of Covid-19 on the Indian pharmaceutical companies was relatively limited in FY2021 owing to the inelastic demand for pharmaceutical products and resumption of imports of key input materials from China from March 2020 onwards. However, some impact on volume growth was felt owing to the lockdowns (lesser OPDs/elective surgeries). The revenue growth for ICRA sample of 21 companies remained muted at ~5.8% in FY2021, though the same witnessed a growth on a Y-o-Y basis, despite Covid-19 related disruptions. The growth was also supported by the depreciation of the INR vis-a-vis other foreign currencies, especially the US dollar.
  • The revenues of  sample set from the domestic formulation market witnessed a revenue growth of ~7.8% against a  ~3% Y-o-Y growth for the Indian pharma market (IPM). The higher growth for ICRA sample set was due to the relatively higher share of Covid-19 drugs in their portfolio and higher mix of chronic therapies. The revenue growth for the sample set for the US market in FY2021 was ~1.2%, partly supported by ~4.7% Y-o-Y depreciation of the INR against the USD, which in turn partly compensated the impact of the regulatory overhang in the form of warning letters, lack of limited competition product launches and mid-single digit pricing pressure in the base generics business.
