International companies associatedwith this sector have stimulated, assisted and spearheaded this dynamic development inthe past 53 years and helped to put India on the pharmaceutical map of the world.The Indian Pharmaceutical sector is highly fragmented with more than 20,000 registeredunits. It has expanded drastically in the last two decades. The leading 250 pharmaceuticalcompanies control 70% of the market with market leader holding nearly 7% of the marketshare. It is an extremely fragmented market with severe price competition andgovernment price control.The pharmaceutical industry in India meets around 70% of the country's demand for bulk drugs, drug intermediates, pharmaceutical formulations, chemicals, tablets, capsules,orals and injectibles. There are about 250 large units and about 8000 Small Scale Units,which form the core of the pharmaceutical industry in India (including 5 Central PublicSector Units). These units produce the complete range of pharmaceutical formulations,i.e., medicines ready for consumption by patients and about 350 bulk drugs, i.e.,chemicals having therapeutic value and used for production of pharmaceuticalformulations.2
