Conclusion

Pandemics such as COVID-19 affect the supply of active ingredients and materials (mainly from China) as well as the import and export of goods. The service and manufacturing sectors also have negative impacts, both medium- and long-term in nature.

The Indian pharmaceutical industry, on the other hand, has grown at a cumulative growth rate (CAGR) of 11% in the domestic market and 16% in exports in recent years. The pharma business has outperformed expectations in response to the worldwide emergency, providing medicines to more than 150 countries in addition to meeting every single domestic requirement. Due to all these reasons, growth is being seen in the pharma sector during the pandemic, and shares of pharma companies also give good returns in such times.
