Indian pharmaceutical companies are grabbing headlines on an almost daily basis and are increasingly carving out market shares for themselves in the US and many other markets around the world. Several leading Indian pharmaceutical companies have applied themselves to the challenge of entering Western markets with great success. These companies now present a very serious threat to the existing Western generic companies in their domestic markets as they take ever-larger market shares and increase the levels of competition.

Why has this challenge arisen - what advantages do Indian companies enjoy that enable them to compete so successfully with Western generic companies?

It is the purpose of this report to answer that question and to provide Western pharmaceutical companies and others that are interested by this phenomenon with some explanation of the background. It will also offer some guidance as to how companies might deal with what some see as a threat and others view as a welcome source of low-cost generics.
