    On 1st May 1960 Gujarat State got separated from greater Bombay State. Prior to

    that, about hundred years, Gujarat based Companies like Alembic Chemical Works

    Ltd. and Sarabhai Chemicals were producing Galenicals, Syrups, Elixirs, Powders,

    and Extracts etc.

    At the time of independence, India was not self-sufficient for medicines. Many of the

    formulations and bulk drugs were imported. Exports of medicine were almost

    negligible. Total production of Pharmaceutical products in 1947, the year of

    independence - was in the tune of Rs.100 million only. 1

    According to data published by the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Ministry of

    Chemicals and Fertilizers, the total turnover of India's pharmaceuticals industry

    between September 2008 and September 2009 was US$ 21.04 billion. Of this the

    domestic market was worth US$ 12.26 billion.

    The Indian pharmaceuticals market is expected to reach US$ 55 billion in 2020 from

    US$ 12.6 billion in 2009, according to a report India Pharma 2020: Propelling access

    and acceptance, realizing true potential by McKinsey & Company. The report states

    that the market has the further potential to reach US$ 70 billion by 2020 in an

    aggressive growth scenario.

    Moreover, according to an Ernst & Young and industry body study, the increasing

    population of the higher-income group in the country, will open a potential US$ 8

    billion market for multinational companies selling costly drugs by 2015. Besides, the

    report said the domestic pharma market is estimated to touch US$ 20 billion by 2015,

    making India a lucrative destination for clinical trials for global giants.

    Further, IMS Health India, which tracks drug sales in the country through a network

    of nationwide drug distributors, estimates the healthcare market in India to reach US$

    31.59 billion by 2020.The Indian pharmaceutical market reached US$ 10.04 billion in

    size, with a value-wise growth rate of 20.4 per cent over the previous years

    corresponding period on a Moving Annual Total (MAT) basis for the 12 months

    ended July 2010, according to data from IMS Health India.

    Cipla maintained its leadership position in the domestic market with 5.27 per cent

    share, followed by Ranbaxy. The highest growth in the domestic market was for

    Mankind Pharma, which grew 37.2 per cent. Leading companies in the domestic

    market such as Sun Pharma (25.7 per cent), Abbott (25 per cent), Zydus Cadila

    (24.1 per cent), Alkem Laboratories (23.3 per cent), Pfizer (23.6 per cent), GSK India

    (19 per cent), Piramal Healthcare (18.6 per cent) and Lupin (18.8 per cent) had

    impressive growth during July 2010, shows the data.

    According to the All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD), the

    pharmaceuticals industry in India will grow by over 100 per cent over the next two


    According to Shinde, President, AIOCD, the pharmaceutical industry is currently

    growing at the rate of 12 per cent, but this will accelerate soon. The sale of all types of

    medicines in the country stands at US$ 9.61 billion, which is expected to reach around

    US$ 19.22 billion by 2012.

    India's domestic pharmaceutical market is valued approximately at US$ 12 billion in

    2010, and has shown a strong growth of 21.3 per cent for the 12 months ending

    September 2010, as per consulting firm Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC). It estimates

    that over the next 10 years, the domestic market will grow to US$ 49 billion, at a

    compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15 per cent.

    According to Mr Srikant Kumar Jena, Union Minister of State for Chemicals and

    Fertilisers, India tops the world in exporting generic medicines worth US$ 11 billion

    and currently, the Indian pharmaceutical industry is one of the world's largest and

    most developed.2

    The industry was once tarnished for making cheap clones of Western medicines and

    selling them in developing countries. However, this is no longer the case, seasoned in

    the basics of medicine making; it is now playing a significant role in the global drug

    industry. The strengthening of patent law and the increasing cost pressures on name-

    brand drug makers in the West are fueling the growth tempo of Indian drugs industry.

    According to the consultancy KPMG, the industry is expected to grow at a compound

  • 3

    annual growth rate of about 18% till 2013-14. The Indian pharmaceutical market has

    become the third largest in the world in terms of volume and is ranked 14th in terms of

    value at over Rs.1 trillion. During 2009-10, Indian pharmaceutical was among the few

    sectors that managed revenue growth despite the global economic recession. Another

    positive development has been the development of biotechnology sector in India.

    Driven by increasing affordability, the industry is undergoing a major transformation

    and is slated to move into the worlds top-ten pharmaceutical market by 2015.

    During the 1990s, there were hardly any exports to regulated markets from India.

    However, today over 40% of $8 billion exports to North America and Western Europe

    alone. The industry has a presence in 150 markets, which is more than any industry in

    India. According to the US Food and Drug Administration data, it also accounts for

    1,735 Drug Master Files as against 1,054 from US domestic companies and more than

    the combined total of European and Japanese companies in 2008. This is a remarkable

    achievement in a decade. In 1998, India filed only three Abbreviated New Drug

    Applications (ANDAs). In 2009, it filed 181 ANDAs.3

    The Indian Pharmaceutical sector is highly fragmented with more than 20,000

    registered units. It has expanded drastically in the last two decades. The leading 250

  • 4

    pharmaceutical companies control 70% of the market with market leader holding

    nearly 7% of the market share. It is an extremely fragmented market with severe price

    competition and government price control.

    The pharmaceutical industry in India meets around 70% of the country's demand for

    bulk drugs, drug intermediates, pharmaceutical formulations, chemicals, tablets,

    capsules, orals and injectibles. There are about 250 large units and about 8000 Small

    Scale Units, which form the core of the pharmaceutical industry in India (including 5

    Central Public Sector Units). These units produce the complete range of

    pharmaceutical formulations, i.e., medicines ready for consumption by patients and

    about 350 bulk drugs, i.e., chemicals having therapeutic value and used for production

    of pharmaceutical formulations.

    Following the de-licensing of the pharmaceutical industry, industrial licensing for

    most of the drugs and pharmaceutical products has been done away with.

    Manufacturers are free to produce any drug duly approved by the Drug Control

    Authority. Technologically strong and totally self-reliant, the pharmaceutical industry

    in India has low costs of production, low R&D costs, innovative scientific manpower,

    strength of national laboratories and an increasing balance of trade. The

    Pharmaceutical Industry, with its rich scientific talents and research capabilities,

    supported by Intellectual Property Protection regime is well set to take on the

    international market.4

    Aggregate net sales of 132 pharmaceutical companies consisting of 125 domestic and

    seven MNC subsidiaries and associates posted an 11% increase to Rs.13690 crore in

    the quarter ended June 2009. Revenue growth from the EU and the US regions was hit

    despite improvement in volumes. This is mainly due to the sharp appreciation of the

    Indian rupee against the pound euro and US dollar. As a result of rise in sales and

    expansion of margin, operating profit rose 22% to Rs.3051 crore. Capacity expansion

    and rising interest rates together led to a 72% spike in interest costs to Rs.235 crore

    and 11% increase in depreciation to Rs.404 crore, respectively. Thus, growth in profit

    before tax was restricted to 11% to Rs.2410 crore. Aggregate net profit of 125

    domestic pharmaceutical companies posted an impressive rise of 24% in net profit to

    Rs.1755 crore on healthy growth in net sales by 11% to Rs.12397 crore.5

    The Indian pharmaceutical industry reported double-digit growth in net profit in the

    quarter ended September 2010. Rupee appreciation, rise in employee costs and

    increase in raw material prices dampened the show. Aggregate net sales of 138

    companies constituting 131 domestic pharmaceutical companies and seven MNCs

    pharmaceutical subsidiaries and associates grew 14% to Rs.19044 crore in the quarter

    ended September 2010 over the September 2009 quarter. Aggregate net sales of 16

    BSE Healthcare Index companies (excluding Piramal Healthcare as it has earned a

    one-time exceptional income of Rs.16224 crore) grew 18% to Rs.14764.21 crore

    despite the rupee appreciation affected growth to some extent in the quarter ended

    September 2010. Net profit increased 30% to Rs.2636.62 crore on forex gains.

    MNC companies reported better performance than domestic pharmaceutical

    companies by growth in turnover and profit. Aggregate net sales of seven MNC

    pharmaceutical companies jumped 15% to Rs.1463 crore.

    The Indian pharmaceutical industry is witnessing sluggish prescription trends, pricing

    pressure from the European Union, intensified generic competition, and pricing

    reforms by Germany. The growth is especially coming from the US, Russia and CIS

    India is a low-cost hub for Contract Research and Manufacturing Services (CRAMS),

    and with many big pharmaceutical companies finding it difficult to grow, focus is

    shifting towards India. Till 2008, developed pharmaceutical markets (US, Canada,

    UK, Western Europe and Japan) contributed more than 50% of global pharmaceutical

    growth and held a disproportional tilt in the market. A group of seven emerging

    markets now rechristened as pharmerging countries, i.e., Brazil, India, Turkey,

    Mexico, Russia, South Korea and China- are eclipsing those developed countries now.

    By 2013, these markets are expected to contribute 70% of the global pharmaceutical

    market growth.7

    In October 2010, the pharmaceutical industry posted a substantially lower growth of

    6.5%, as against 20% in September 2010, mainly due to lower sales of anti-infective

    and cough and cold medicines. In October 2009, the domestic retail market had

    clocked a huge growth of nearly 30%, while during the previous year in October

    2008, it posted a negative growth.8

    According to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers, India will join the league of the top

    10 global pharmaceutical markets in terms of sales by 2020 with the total reaching

    $50 billion.9


    Gujarat's pharmaceutical industry, which led the way with indigenous production of

    medicines and the march towards self-sufficiency in drugs and pharmaceuticals in a

    newly-independent India, completes its centenary this year.

    While Bengal Chemicals, now closed, was the first modern pharmaceutical company

    in India, Vadodara based Alembic Ltd, the second, celebrated its centenary in 2007.

    The State was the first to manufacture APIs and finished dosage form in India,

    manufacture pharmaceutical machinery, lead the way with clinical research

    organizations and become the first to undertake pre-clinical safety and toxicology

    studies in the country.

    Alembics potent combination of pioneering vision, entrepreneurial spirit, sound

    infrastructure and the ability to adapt to the changing times have helped shape Gujarat

    as a pharma hub. From its beginning in 1907 when Alembic was set up in the then

    princely state of Baroda, the state today serves as the corporate headquarters and a

    manufacturing base for several leading Indian pharmaceutical companies and


    Gujarat has four pharma manufacturing clusters at Ahmedabad, Vadodara,

    Ankleshwar and Bharuch-Vapi-Valsad belt.10 Being home to around 3,500 drug

    manufacturing units, Gujarat is one of the countrys most enterprising states in the

    pharmaceutical sector. It boasts of 42 percent share of Indias pharmaceutical turnover

    and 22 percent share of exports.11

    The industry had received strong support from the academic field. In 1940, the Drugs

    Laboratory in Vadodara was established, followed by LM College of Pharmacy.

    Further in 1989, the B.V.Patel Education Trust, Ahmedabad and Gujarat Branch of

    Indian Pharmaceutical Association (IPA) established the B.V. Patel Pharmaceutical

    Education and Research Development (PERD) Centre in Ahmedabad.12

    45% of the pharmaceuticals used by the nation also happen to be from Gujarat.13

    The present research covers the study of the below mentioned five pharmaceutical

    companies in the state of Gujarat.

    Alembic Limited

    Torrent Pharmaceutical Limited

    Cadila Healthcare

    Sun pharmaceutical

    Lupin Laboratories Ltd.

    A brief profile of the above mentioned companies is as follows.


    One of the oldest pharmaceutical companies in India, Alembic formerly known as

    Alembic Chemical Works Company has already completed 100 years of operations.

    Among other things, the company makes Glycodin, the most trusted cough syrup for

    over 50 years. It manufactures pharmaceuticals and chemicals, bulk drugs (penicillin

    and other antibiotics) and formulations. In 1995, the veterinary division of the

    company was tied up with the animal health division of Hindustan Ciba-Giegy to

    export eight veterinary products to Ciba (Bangladesh). In 1998-99, the installation

    work of Cephalosporin-C recovery plant has been completed and that of 7-ACA was

    with the company with the approval of High court of Gujarat and the legal formalities

    was also completed w.e.f. 16.09.2002. As per the scheme, the shareholders of

    Darshak Ltd were allotted shares in the ratio of 6 shares of Alembic for every 100

    shares of Darshak Ltd. In Feb. 2001, the company has launched Glycodin Activ cold

    and flu tablets that are available over-the-counter (OTC) at Rs 12 (local taxes extra)

    for a blister pack of 10. The company got ISO-9002 and ISO-14001 certification.

    Alembic has finalized a major business restructuring plan under which it will create a

    new division for cardiovascular and diabetic drugs while hiving of some odd brands

    into a franchisee company for their marketing. The company has introduced novel

    anti diabetic product Nateglinide in the brand name of NATELIDE. The company

    plans to set up R&D Centre at Vadodara covering 7500 square metres. The facility

    would consist of Chemistry, Analytical and Biological Laboratories. In order to make

    more significant in Generic market and also to make it US FDA qualified the

    company made a investment at its Panelav plant. This facility is expected to be

    inspected in the first quarter of 2004.14

    company with manufacturing facilities in Baroda and Baddi, India with R&D

    facilities spearheading landmark research in the areas of Chemistry, Microbiology,

    and Pharmaceutical Technology. and Bio-Equivalence. They have launched "BIO

    ARC RESEARCH CENTRE" at Baroda to further capitalize their strength in


    Needless to say, Alembic has a turnover and growth rate that takes it into the top

    bracket of Indian pharmaceutical companies with a series of brands among the top

    five in their respective categories.

    Alembic is a certified ISO-9002 and ISO-14001 company with manufacturing

    practices and facilities that conform to WHO-GMP guidelines ensuing that every

    It all began with the toil of one enterprising individual, Shri. U N Mehta, when he

    ventured on his own to create history in the Indian pharmaceutical industry by

    implementing successfully the concept of niche marketing. His journey, characterized

    by ups and downs, reached a milestone in 1970, with the launch of Trinicalm Plus, an

    effective tranquilizer in the niche segment, central nervous system (CNS).

    The foundations for Torrent were laid when 'Trinity Laboratories' began operations

    under the able guidance of Shri Mehta whose efforts are worthy of emulation.

    'Trinity' was renamed 'Torrent' and with this not only did the company get a new

    name, it also focused on establishing its own manufacturing facilities in the early 80s.

    Torrent augmented its efforts with the expansion of its manufacturing capacity,

    emphasis on marketing and creating business opportunities through focus on exports.

    Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited recorded a quantum leap in the year 1994. It has also

    been rated India's ninth best company among capital intensive companies in terms of

    ROCE in a study by ETIG-BCG in 2001.

    In recognition of the consistent performance Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited has

    been receiving accolades from various quarters, such as the President's award for

    highest pharmaceuticals exports of Rs.1570 million in 1991-92. The Company that

    had a humble beginning has now grown to become one of the leading players in


    The flagship company of Torrent group, Torrent Pharmaceuticals Limited, is a

    dominant player in the therapeutic areas of cardiovascular (CV) and central nervous

    system (CNS) and has achieved significant presence in gastro-intestinal, diabetology,

    anti-infective and pain management segments.

    To cater to new niche segments and sharpen its focus among customers, Torrent

    Pharma has six marketing divisions, each catering to defined therapeutic segment. A

    2300 strong field force caters to around 2,00,000 doctors across the country, which

    makes it rank fifth in terms of market reach.

    Torrent Pharmas competitive advantage as a manufacturer stems from its world-class

    manufacturing facilities. Its manufacturing facilities at Indrad, Gujarat, comply with

    WHO, cGMP, MHRA and TGA norms and have received ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and

  • 10

    OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Management System) and ISO/IEC-

    17025 certifications.

    With a view to cater to its growth requirements, Torrent Pharma commissioned a new

    formulations manufacturing facility at Baddi, Himachal Pradesh, in November 2005.

    The facility has a capacity to manufacture 3600 million tablets, 400 million capsules

    and 18 million Oral Liquid bottles, per annum and would cater to the domestic

    formulations requirement.

    Torrent has a modern and well-equipped state-of-the-art R&D Centre, built with an

    investment of US $ 40 million. It is manned by more than 525 highly qualified

    scientists, with a combined experience of over 2500 scientific man-years in Drug

    Discovery and Development. Torrent Pharma has earmarked 9% of sales year-after-

    year for R&D advancement.

    In the International operations arena, Torrent Pharma exports to more than 50

    countries around the world with over 1000 product registrations. The international

    business has been broadly divided into five zones- USA, Latin America, Russia and

    CIS, Western Europe and CEE and Rest of the World (ROW). For its export

    excellence in International Business, Torrent Pharma has won several prestigious

    export awards.

    Torrent Pharma is now gearing up to enter the advanced highly regulated international

    markets. Torrent Pharma has incorporated Zao Torrent Pharma in Russia, Torrent Do

    Brasil Ltd. in Brazil, Torrent Pharma GmbH in Germany, Torrent Pharma Inc. in

    USA and Torrent Pharma Philippines Inc. in Philippines. These wholly owned

    subsidiaries will become a springboard for entry into several regulated and less

    regulated international markets.17


    Sun Pharma began in 1983 with just 5 products to treat psychiatry ailments. Sales

    were initially limited to 2 states - West Bengal and Bihar. Sales were rolled out

    nationally in 1985. Products that are used in cardiology were introduced in 1987, and

    Monotrate, one of the first products launched at that time has since become one of our

    largest selling products. Important products in Cardiology were then added; several of

    these were introduced for the first time in India.

    Sun Pharma was listed on the main stock exchanges in India in 1994; and the Rs. 55

    crore issue of a Rs. 10 face value equity share at a premium of Rs. 140/- was

    oversubscribed 55 times. The minimum 25% that was required under the regulations

    then for listing was offered to the public, the owner family continues to hold a

    majority stake in Sun Pharma. They used this money to build a greenfield site for API

    manufacture, as well as for acquisitions. For the acquisitions, typically companies or

    assets that could be turned around and brought on track were identified.

    Their first API manufacturing plant was built in Panoli in 1995, for access to high

    quality actives ahead of competition, and to tap the vast international opportunity for

    speciality APIs.

    Another API plant, the Ahmednagar plant, was acquired from the multinational Knoll

    Pharmaceuticals in 1996, and upgraded for approvals from regulated markets, with

    substantial capacity addition over the years. This was the first of several sensibly

    priced acquisitions, each of which would bring important parts to the long-term


    By 1997, their headquarters were shifted to Mumbai, the commercial capital of the

    country. We began on the first of our international acquisitions with an initial $7.5

    million investment in Caraco Pharm Labs, Detroit. By 2000, we had completed 8

    acquisitions, each such move adding new therapy areas or offering an entry to

    important international markets. A new research center was set up in Mumbai for

    generic product development for the US market. In India, as new therapy areas were

    entered into post acquisition; customer attention, product selection and focused

    marketing helped us gain a foothold in areas like orthopedics, gynecology, oncology,

    etc. From a ranking at 38th in 1994, by the year 2000 Sun Pharmaceutical was ranked

    5th with a leadership in 8 of the 11 therapy areas that they were present in. The year

    2000 was the year of turnaround at the US subsidiary, Caraco, as it began to receive

    approvals after successful inspection by the USFDA. In December 2004, a research

    center spread over 16 acres was inaugurated by the President of India, with special lab

    space for drug discovery and innovation.

    Hardly any aspect of our life remains untouched by engineering today. Engineers put

    power and materials to work for human race steel and concrete to build bridges,

    roads, buildings, dams and glass, metal and plastics to manufacture hundreds of

    everyday products. Engineering industry is the pre-requisite of industrialization of a

    society or a nation as it portrays the capability to add value to primary products in our

    economical world of today where trade has replaced war and finance has replaced


    During the first ten years of independence, engineering industry maintained a low

    profile in the unorganized sector through the indigenous efforts of mechanics,

    craftsmen and immigrants who had the employees of large industrial units in India.

    However, things improved in late fifties when large units such as Karachi Shipyard

    and Engineering Works (KSEW) were commissioned in 1956.

    While engineering industry has made a substantial progress over the years to produce

    such as tractors, motorcycles, electric transformers, switch gears, electric meters, air

    conditioners, refrigerators, sewing machines, cars, trucks, diesel engines within the

    country, the uncertain as well as non-availability of right type of basic raw material

    steel and its alloys plus lack of precision needed for the manufacture of parts and

    machinery are one of the major constraints for the development of the engineering


    The following five engineering units are selected for the purpose of study:

    1. Elecon Engineering Company Ltd.

    2. FAG Bearings India Ltd.
