Many biologics will come off patents in the next two to four years, which will encourage businesses that have made significant investments in developing robust infrastructure and human resources and present them with a chance to profit from the patent cliff. As a result, I anticipate that the development of biosimilars will rise significantly during the next few years. A further significant possibility stems from the changing global landscape, namely the ‘China plus one’ approach that establishes India as a major participant in Contract Development and Manufacturing Organizations (CDMO). Emerging fields like ADC’s and cell and gene therapy are also gaining traction beyond the established domains. An exciting growth trajectory is anticipated in 2024 as biotech pioneers navigate this dynamic terrain owing to the combination of biosimilar breakthroughs, strategic CDMO placement, and new modalities.”Indian pharma sector to grow to $120-130 bn by 2030 and $350-400 bn by 2047
