Our philosophy is to ensure that our brand products such as K-Stat Group T-Stat GroupMerizyme Group K-Win GroupPromolact GroupOvaryl GroupZidust and Cliarway willcontribute more and increase prescription waves of theseproducts.
We also realize very high competition in institutional business and government businesswhich lead to erosion of profit. Under that circumstances we are restricting ouractivities of institutional and government business in certain states.We are expanding ourinstitutional and government business in untracked states where margins are high. We haveaggressively planned in export business to achieve higher business in Export DeemedExport Direct Export andweexpectsalesgrowth of approximate 40-50%.
Since government of India spending 1.5% GDP in health sector and for that they havecome out with program such as AyushmanBharatJanAushadetc. scheme along with enhancementofprimary health sector with testingand modem equipment. This will help to cover more Indianpopulation which requires large quantity of medicines. We look this program as anopportunity to penetrate our company and our brands to health care program and enhance thebusiness.
Government of India has introduced and simplified the act and the rules along withdigitization and automation to effectively implement GST Labour Law Income Tax lawa andother company laws to make things easier for manufacturers. However due to initial stageof digitization we are working hard and trying to meet all government laws.
As stipulated by regulation 34(3) read with Schedule V(B) of the Listing RegulationsManagement Discussion and Analysisformspartsof this report.
a) Industry Structure and Development
Our nation made number of changesin last2 yearsandexpectto change by creating messageto common people that they get quality product with reasonable price. Government of Indiaalso ensures that all Indians must get medical treatments. They come out with number ofsupportive scheme in the healthcare segment which ultimate lead to health for all.Government's participation to more generate business in the pharmaceutical to the largeextent and we being partofthis activity.This willcontinuetogive future scope ofexpansion.
Government of India and their dynamic approach towards easy to business have madenumber of changes in different Act and Rule and making online enforcement as well asreducing interface between government and manufacturers from time to time. This will helpcompany like us to easily meet the demand and focus more on businessand expand thebusinesstomeet governmentrequirements fromtime to time.
As government spell out Ayushman Bharat to cover atleast 50 crores under healthcarescheme and we will be part of that scheme by providing good quality of drugs to theagencies.Necessary change in the structure is made in our systemas perthe law fromtime totime.
Sincelast2-3 decades scienceand technology hasgiven tremendousinputs to health systemsandimprovethe life of common people and extended life span of Indian upto 68 years asaverage life span. This may be possible because Indian Pharma Companies take challenges ofScience and Technologies and new methods re-engineering techniques. Indian companiesintroduced new molecules which are less harmful. The Pharma companies madeproductsavailable in the remote placesof our country.
Indian Pharmaceutical Industry is estimated to grow at 12% to 14% in years to come. TheGovernment of India had unveiled "Pharma Vision 2020" aiming at making India aglobal leader manufacturing. Many Indian companies are focusingon globalgenericandAPIemerging as preferredpharmaceuticals manufacturing location.
Price control order under NPPA who arbitrarily reduced some of the price of the drugsmay affect us in future.
However we are continuously introducing new products and balancing our product portfolio so that eventually molecules comes under NPPAand we may not be affected and ourbottom line remain the same. In next 2-3 years more than 17-20 billion worth medicineswill go off patent and this will help our company to take advantage of the patentproducts.
Increasing use of pharmaceutical generics in developed markets to reduce healthcarecost will provide attractive growth opportunities to generics manufacturers and thusIndian Pharmaceutical industry is poised for an accelerated growth in the comingyears.However poor public healthcare funding and infrastructure low per capitalconsumption of medicines in developing and underdeveloped countries including Indiacurrency fluctuations regulatory issues inflation and resultant all round increase ininput costs are few causes of concern. The business remains exposed to risks arising outof currency movements regulatory changes as well as geo-political events. As anorganization Company is continuouslydevelopingcapabilities and competencies to copewithtough industry environment.
