Indian pharma cos to benefit from improving US demand: Report

Sunday, 20 December 2020 | IANS | New Delhi

Indian pharma companies are expected to benefit from improving demand in the US market, said India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra).

As per the ratings agency, these companies have garnered 45 per cent of all new Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) approvals over the past nine months.

Besides, Ind-Ra expects the regulatory environment to remain stringent.

However, it said well-equipped companies would be able to take the advantage of a better pricing outlook emanating from supply shortages and recalls.

“Indian companies have received a higher share of new ANDA approvals since April 2020 led by significant manufacturing facility clearances, GDUFA-II (Generic Drug User Fee Amendments), and a strong filing momentum aided by historical investments in R&D,” Ind-Ra added in a report.

“Ind-Ra has seen an increasing drug demand since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic led by supply chain issues, channel filling and demand for Covid-19 led preventive products. In the past, too, there was drug shortage in the US due to the exit of the large generic players from unviable products.”

“Overall drugs shortages in the US are leading to moderate-to-stable pricing pressures.”

Furthermore it cited that majority of the drug recalls (91 per cent) from the US markets are from the non or least serious category (Class-II and III recalls).
