History

 

Bulk Drug Industry is the backbone of the self-reliant Pharmaceutical industry in India , playing a significant role in improving the health standards of the people.

Consists of Large, Medium and many small-scale units providing direct employment to about 2,00,000 and indirect employment to another 2,00,000 people.

The capital investment in the industry is about Rs.30000 Million. Today 90% of the domestic bulk drugs requirement is met by the Indian industry, itself. The Bulk Drug industry contributed Rs 51,000 Million of exports, which is growing by over 20% every year.

 

The growth and achievement of the Indian Drug Industry during the last five decades has been phenomenal and has been rated as one of the highest among the developing countries. 

From a mere processing industry to begin with, India's bulk drug and pharmaceutical industry today has grown into a highly sophisticated one, meeting the International standards of Production, Technology and Quality Control.

The progress of the Drug industry has not only rendered the country self-sufficient in National Health Care, but also played a role in reversing the trend of Indian foreign trade profile from a predominantly importing country to a highly visible exporter to global marketing.

The Association

The Bulk Drug Manufacturers Association (India) was formed in 1991 with Hyderabad as its Head Quarters. This is an all India body representing most of the Bulk Drug Manufacturers of India. The Association works for the consolidation of gains of the industry and serves as a co-ordinator and catalyst between the government and the industry for the growth of the industry.
