PHARMACEUTICAL SECTOR IN PAKISTAN

Pakistan meets 80% of its domestic demand of medicines from local production and 20% through imports. The pharmaceuticals market size is Rs. 70 Billion (US $ 1.2 Billion), approximately. The market for pharmaceuticals in Pakistan has been expanding at a rate of around 10 to15% since last few years.

Pakistan is also exporting its surplus drugs to a large number of countries particularly to the Asian and African regions with an expanding trade in the newly emerged Central Asian States. About a hundred million strong populations of the Central Asian States, with almost no local manufacture of medicines, offers an attractive market for industries located in Pakistan.

Pakistan's large population of more than 140 million people, expanding economy including health services, individual rise in purchasing power, general awareness regarding use of new molecules of drugs, etc. provides an ideal environment for investment in this field.

Presently the pharmaceutical industry in Pakistan is producing all the major pharmaceutical dosage forms. Similarly, there are some special products e.g. immunological, anti-cancer drugs, certain anti-diabetics, antidotes and products manufactured from biotechnology, which are still being imported, in the finished form. These specific areas provide excellent opportunities for investment. Only few bulk pharmaceutical raw materials are being manufactured locally and most of the pharmaceutical raw materials are being imported in large quantities from different countries of the world. This sector also gives challenge to explore and avail the opportunities.


BASIC MANUFACTURE
there are five units operating in Pakistan for the Semi Basic Manufacturing of pharmaceutical raw material and still Pakistan has the capacity to absorb the significant investment in this field.

Multi National Manufacturers
At present 30 multinational pharmaceutical organizations are producing their products in Pakisatn.

Local Manufacturers
411 units are involved in local pharmaceutical manufacturing.
