The Indian Pharma industry accounts for ~20% (volume terms) of the global generics industry.

USA, Russia, Germany, Austria and UK are the top export destinations with USA alone accounting for almost 20% of total exports. Although the industry is fragmented, the large and medium sized pharma companies contribute to ~75% of the domestic sales and over 90% of exports.

The overall pharmaceutical industry was pegged at Rs 1,000 billion (~USD 20 billion) with the domestic pharma industry at over Rs 600 billion (~USD 12 billion) in 2009-10. The bulk drugs contributed to about Rs 420 billion (USD 8.4 billion). The country has about 10,563 manufacturing units with about 300 large and medium units and remaining in the small scale and unorganized sector. The Department of Pharma in its 12th plan aims to increase the size of the industry to USD 60 billion with exports contributing to over USD 25 billion. The contribution of bulk drugs is aimed at USD 28 billion (47% contribution). About USD 300 billion worth of patented drugs are expected to become generic by 2015 and this would a major driving factor for our exports.
