Motilal Oswal Report

We concluded our 16th Annual General Investor Conference, which saw participation from 14 domestic pharma companies across various product segments.

Outlook for domestic formulations improving gradually: With the easing of lockdown measures, connect between medical representative and doctor is reviving at a rapid pace. 80–90% of MRs are now on the field, and face-to-face meetings have also commenced.

At the same time, structural transformation is underway with the increased use of digital tools, which would aid sustained cost savings, to some extent.

Demand for chronic therapies has been steady, while demand for acute therapies is picking up at a gradual pace.

Emerging Markets continue to reel under the impact of Covid-19 and currency depreciation.

MR activity is picking up as the worst phase of Covid-19 is expected to be over in Brazil and Russia.

Unfavorable currency remains a challenge, and companies are hedging against the vagaries of currency volatility.
