Driven by domestic expansion and an uptick in exports, India’s pharmaceutical market is projected to grow threefold over the next decade — jumping to about $120 to $130 billion by 2030. And, as the largest global provider of generic medicines and vaccines, the country’s efforts to create, develop and manufacture innovative therapies and low-cost drug alternatives has turned certain cities, like Hyderabad, into world-class pharma hubs. The world’s largest pharma cluster, for example, is a 19,000-acre industrial park named ‘Hyderabad Pharma City’ that employs more than 560,000 industry professionals. This type of investment, as well as the following companies, keeps India at the top of the pharma industry.
