As an industry responsible for researching, developing, producing, and distributing medications, the pharma sector has experienced significant growth during the past two decades. As per the industry reports, the global pharmaceuticals market is expected to grow from USD 1454.66 billion in 2021 to USD 2135.18 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 7.7%. Experts believe that the growth will be driven mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. According to the Indian Economic Survey 2021, the Indian market is expected to grow 3x in the next decade. India’s domestic pharmaceutical market stood at USD 42 billion in 2021 and is likely to reach USD 65 billion by 2024 and further expand to reach US$ 120-130 billion by 2030.
