date. Free online registration to attend CPhI and P-MEC India is now
closed, however registration is still possible in Mumbai, the onsite

India has increasingly become a focal point of the pharmaceutical
industry and is now the third largest in terms of volume. The country
is fast becoming an innovation hub, increasingly matching Western
standards, whilst also reducing the costs of manufacturing, showcasing
the Indian pharma markets unique position and providing an optimum
investment platform for international companies. Outside of the US,
India has the highest number of FDA approved facilities (546), and the
Indian pharma sector received USFDA approvals for around 40% of all
Abbreviated New Drug Approvals (ANDA) during January-July 2013.
Further, with R&D investments rapidly advancing, coupled with the rise
in generics and supergenerics, India represents a key maturing market,
with CPhI and P-MEC India facilitating opportunities to drive and
enhance the sector.
Ahead of the event, the UBM India pharma awards will take place on 2nd December, celebrating the most innovative and dynamic areas across the
Indian pharma community. Honouring companies who are driving forward
industry changing initiatives, there will be awards for multiple
categories including 'Excellence in Product Development', 'Excellence
in Contract Research' and 'Excellence in Packaging Development'. The
evening will also host a panel discussion on 'Moving up the Global
Pharma Value Chain', designed to inform and educate those present at
the awards ceremony.
"The global pharmaceutical market has seen a significant shift over the
last year, particularly as patent expirations are becoming more
frequent and a potential patent cliff is shaking the industry. India, however, is thriving as the demand for generics is on the rise
and companies are looking to drive down manufacturing costs. India is
well positioned to accommodate increased demand, providing expertise in
development and manufacturing. CPhI and P-MECIndia will provide the ideal and essential platform for international and
domestic suppliers and buyers to break into the market." - Chris Kilbee, Group Director, Pharma.
