The Rs 25,000 crore (USD 5 million) Indian Pharma Industry is rapidly restructuring the post – 2005 product patent regime. It is a net exporter with about 8 per cent market share (in terms of volume) of the USD 340 billion global market with having seen an average growth of 9 per cent over the last 5 years. Biotechnology is a sunrise industry, expected to vastly improve the quality of life. With more than 800 biotech companies already, the Indian Biotech Industry is getting organised with biotech parks coming up backed by Central and State Government support.


PHARMA WORLD EXPO 2015 will be 27th exhibitions, and is expected to witness record participation.

The event, supported by CHEMTECH Foundation, will display state-of-the-art technologies, equipment, accessories and services from national and international players in each sector. The concurrent International Conferences will deleberate on issues of topical interest to practising professionals.


Catalysing Industrial Growth

The evolution and the growth of Indian Pharmaceutical and Biotech industries have been both reflected and catalyzed by CHEMTECH.

With a scintillating market value of USD 12.29 billion, the Indian pharma industry bagged the position of being the third largest in the world. it is also the biggest global supplier of traditional vaccines and has the largest number of FDA-approved manufacturing facilities outside of the United States.

The big question of the moment is where we should focus our attention to sustain this growth. A large chunk of this growth is attributed to biopharmaceuticals which is increasingly becoming an area of interest given the complexity in manufacture and limited competition.

Though initially regarded as an offshoot of pharmaceutical industry, Indian biotech industry seems to come a long way. India is amongst the top-12 biotech destinations in the world and ranks second in Asia, after China.

The Indian biotechnology sector is one of the fastest growing knowledge-based sectors in India. With more than 800 biotech companies already, the Indian Biotech Industry is getting organised with biotech parks coming up backed by Central and State Government support. Growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22 per cent, Indian biotechnology sector is expected to achieve revenue of USD 11.6 billion by 2017.

India is now recognised as a global destination for vaccines, bio-services and increasingly for contract manufacturing, especially biosimilars. There is a huge opportunity for Indian biotechnology to play an important role in shaping India's rapidly developing economy as well as contribute to the global economy.

Chemtech foundation rightly understood the situation and pioneered international biotech event in India. Biotech 2003 was first of its kind and witnessed a record participation.

We are happy to inform you that the 27th edition of ChemTECH-Pharma-BioTECH World Expo will be organised from January 28-31, 2015 at Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre, Goregaon (East), Mumbai. Department of biotechnology and FABA have extended their support to the event.

The concurrent conference organised during the event will deliberate on issues of topical interest to practicing professionals.
