Indian pharma exports rise by 4.22% to $14.57 billion during April-Oct in current fiscal

HYDERABAD: Pharmaceutical exports from India registered a growth of 4.22% to reach $14.57 billion during the April-October period despite a negative trend last month, according to a senior official of an export promotion body under Government of India.
Udaya Bhaskar, Director General of Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India (Pharmexcil) which is an organisation under the Ministry of Commerce, said he was hopeful of ending the current fiscal at around $27 billion as against $24.62 billion during the last financial year.
“There was a dip (-0.32 per cent) in July and (-5.45 per cent) and there was 8.47 per cent positive growth in September. I am optimistic that it will be revived in the coming months and may touch $27 billion at the end of the fiscal,” Bhaskar told PTI.
During the same period last fiscal, the exports fetched $13.98 billion.
USA, Canada and Mexico (NAFTA countries), Europe and Africa account for 67.5 per cent (nearly $ 5 billion) of the total exports.
“Our exports in the category of vaccines are in a very bad shape. Despite the above and Russia-Ukraine war factors, we are on a positive side,” he further said.
In October, exports fell by 5.45 per cent to $1.95 billion.
India’s overall exports contracted by 16.65 per cent to $29.78 billion in October 2022 as compared to the last year’s period, according to data released by the Ministry of Commerce recently. During April-October 2022, exports recorded a growth of 12.55 per cent to $263.35 billion.
Bhaskar said strengthening of dollar against the currencies of some of the key countries has also resulted in decline in exports during October besides the sanctions resulting from the Russia-Ukraine war.
“For example, Nigeria is one of the top five markets for Indian pharma exports. The continuous depreciation of Nigerian Naira against the US Dollar has forced that country to go slow on imports,” the official further said.
Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, in a recent tweet, said India has emerged as a global pharma powerhouse under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rule.
Exports of pharma production grew to over $90,32,000 crore during April-October period from nearly Rs 38,000 crore in the same period in 2013 up by 137.7 per cent, the minister said tagging an infographic.
