LITERATURE REVIEW ON PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

Beena. S (2006)  The research was carried on the basis of  mergers and acquisitions in the Indian pharmaceutical industry. The study found that many of the firms are implementing these strategies in the new context of globalisation mainly to overcome the acute competition. The study reaches the conclusion that the consolidation strategies followed by the firms enabled them to cut down the wasteful expenses to a greater extent and which resulted in better performance in the industry.

Chaturvedi and Chataway (2006) The researcher has described in their study about Smaller pharmaceuticals do not have these resources and might not be able to survive in the market. Indian firms are adapting to the changing environments. R&D is recognized as the ‘survival kit' in the post-TRIPs scenario. The paper observed that Indian firms are investing in R&D not only for new drug discovery but for developing capabilities .

HarithaSaranga , B.V. Phani (2008) The Indian Pharmaceutical Industry (IPI) will be going through a major shift in its business model, from the year 2005. As a result, IPI, comprising of more than 20,000 players, is slowly consolidating with mergers, acquisitions and alliances; and getting ready to adapt to the new environment.

Jaya Prakash Pradhan (2006)  It is found that strategic government policies were the main factors that transformed the status of the Indian pharmaceutical industry from a mere importer and distributor of drugs and pharmaceuticals to an innovation‐driven cost‐effective producer of quality drugs. India emerged as one of the fast growing pharmaceutical industry in the world with growing trade surpluses and 98 exports.

Nair (2007) The researcher points out that future will be bright for the Indian pharma companies focusing on visionary strategies. Drug Discovery focus on production of high quantum and moderately priced generics, strengthening API/drug intermediates production, outsourcing to MNC's upgrading manufacturing facilities to USFDA standards and investing in Pharma support services and help India move up and compete with top global Pharma companies.

MINISTRY OF EXTERNAL AFFAIRS OF PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

• The story of the Indian pharmaceutical sector could well have been like the IT sector if only enough attention was paid to its achievements and the huge impact it has had on healthcare around the world.The pharma sector is innovative, widely acknowledged as making a global impact in the treatment of diseases like HIV AIDS and also able to support the healthcare needs of the world.

• The Indian pharma Industry produces about 20% of the global generic drugs with the US accounting for nearly 28% of Indian pharmaceutical exports, followed by the European Union at 18% and Africa at over 17%. This should be a clear acknowledgement of the global leadership that Indian pharma industry has achieved which would have been impossible without following global quality standards.

• Another popular criticism of Indian pharma has been that there is insufficient investment in innovation and R&D. Despite over 500 new drugs being discovered by Indian pharma companies during 1985 – 2005, there seems a perception that India thrives on copying foreign products.
