India?s biotechnology industry is moving towards new heights keeping with the pace of global development. The center of
concentration of India?s biotech industry is biopharmaceuticals since India is one among the global manufacturers of generic
drugs. As a result, Indian companies are increasingly under pressure to join the bandwagon of the biopharmaceutical global
market, and the biopharmaceutical segment alone has contributed 77% of the total biotech market between 2005 and 2006.
India is steadily increasing its efforts to become a global player in biotech activities and investments supported by manpower,
knowledge, biodiversity and technology.In1986, the Department of Biotechnology was created with an investment of USD 210
million to support several research institutions across India. India ranks among the top 12 nations in the long list of biotech
companies employing about 20,000 people with a global market contribution of 2%. Among the biotech industry, healthcare
sector dominates (60%), followed by service sector (25%) and agricultural biotech (15%). This presentation will highlight
the contributions of the India?s biotech industry with respect to biopharmaceutical and healthcare with an emphasis on the
achievements of different segments of biopharmaceutical and healthcare sectors such as therapeutics, diagnostics, stem cell
research, healthcare related bioinformatics and animal health care.
