Industry Overview

As per IMF’s June 2020 World Economic Outlook update, in 2020 the global economy is expected to witness the worst recession since the Great Depression with economic output likely to contract by 4.9%. This is attributed to the damage caused by the lockdowns implemented by several large economies that resulted in disruption in supply chains, demand destruction and rapid increase in unemployment levels across several large economies. In 2020, the IMF expects the Advanced Economies to contract by 8% with the US economy likely to shrink by 8% and the Euro region by 10.2%. The Emerging markets also are expected to be severely impacted and are expected to contract by 3% in 2020 with China’s growth rate expected to decline to 1% and the Indian economy expected to contract by 4.5% in FY 2021. 4

Government and central banks across the world have resorted to unprecedented fiscal and monetary stimulus to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 and support economic activity, which is expected to lead to recovery in 2021. In 2021, IMF expects the global economy to grow by 5.4% with US and Euro region growing by 4.5% and 6% and Chinese and Indian economies growing by 8.2% and 6%, respectively. However, given the evolving pandemic situation, there is considerable uncertainty about the strength of the recovery and if the world witnesses a prolonged impact of COVID-19, then economic output and short-term outlook may further get impacted.

As per Evaluate Pharma’s annual ‘World Preview’, the global Prescription drug sales is expected to grow at 6.9% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) between 2019- 2024 to reach US$ 1.2 trillion. This growth is expected to be driven by immuno-oncology line extensions and emergence of novel technologies such as cell and gene therapy.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry is the largest exporter of quality generic drugs in the world. India currently contributes 26% by volume of generic therapeutics globally and supplies 60% of global demand for vaccines and antiretroviral (ARV) drug supplies. The Indian pharmaceutical sector’s robust set of laws and regulations, at state and federal levels, ensure highest levels of quality and safety for its drugs. India is one of the largest contributors of global biotech products and benefits from lower labor cost over other manufacturing hubs.

In March 2020, the Government of India, announced a scheme of ` 30 billion to develop three mega Bulk Drug Parks in India and a Production Linked Incentive scheme of ` 69.4 billion for promotion of domestic manufacturing of critical Key Starting Materials (KSMs)/Drug Intermediates and APIs in the country. The company believe, these are steps in the right direction and will go long way to further strengthen the domestic pharmaceuticals industry and reduce reliance on import of Key Starting Materials / Drug Intermediates from other countries. Government of India’s several initiatives announced in May 2020 aimed at promoting self-reliance of the country are also expected to boost production and 'Make in India' over the medium to long term.

According to a report by Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), the Indian crop protection chemicals industry is estimated to witness a CAGR of 8.3% to US$ 8.1 billion by FY 2025, with exports growing at a higher rate of 8.6% to US$ 4.2 billion in 2025. According to an industry report, the global animal nutrition market is estimated to grow at a rate of 6.5% to reach US$ 21.4 billion by 2022.

The global crop protection chemicals market size was US$ 58.4 billion in 2019 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 3.3% from 2020 to 2027. Greater emphasis on high crop output to counter food security is the key growth driver.
