Anand Rathi Report

The Indian pharma sector has retained its growth momentum for the fifth consecutive month.

After growing 8.5% in December, it grew 4.5% in January, signalling that the post-Covid-19 recovery is in full swing.

Overall, acute therapies grew 1.4%; chronic and sub-chronic therapies, 6.1% and 8.6% respectively.

Dec volumes were down 2.9%, while the sector hiked prices 4.9% and growth from launches was back to 2.4% as the number of Covid-19 cases is now coming down.

Growth in key Covid-19 molecules like remdesivir (monthly sales: Rs 388 million) and favipiravir (Rs 159 million) is slowing. We expect healthy single-digit volume growth.
