India Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The coronavirus or COVID-19 outbreak that started from Wuhan, China has spread across India too, affecting various industries. Supply of key materials such as API has been severely disrupted due to quarantine, and lack of labor & raw materials, which has negative impact on the active pharmaceutical ingredients market. As the link between regional warehouses is not smooth, the transportation of raw materials between regions cannot be carried out successfully. This shortage of raw materials and components have affected the supply chain of the active pharmaceutical ingredients market.

India's pharmaceutical industry is heavily dependent on China. Approximately 70% of raw materials for APIs in India are imported from China. Moreover, supply-side constraints and contamination risks are expected to exacerbate shortages of certain types of medicines such as cardiovascular or heart disease drugs. The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) predicts that in the event of a prolonged lockdown in China, more than 50 active ingredients of important antibiotics, vitamins, and hormones or steroids faced shortage in supply, which has negative impact on India active pharmaceutical ingredient market.
