Pharma Industry has been evolving very fast, especially since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic which has created geopolitical stress. The need for newer molecules or compounds which were either not manufactured or produced in minuscule volume in India Suddenly spiked and most of the Indian and global pharma companies are looking at reliable, predictive and competitive supply-chain management.

Our ability to quickly identify such APIs, Drug Intermediates and KSMs and develop them in a very short span of time helps us remain on top of the game. We work in sync with the Demand and need for such solutions.

What inspires you to come up with CARBONTREE PHARMA PVT LTD to identify, develop, manufacture and offers some of the new-age drugs, which are either currently not produced in India and with Minimum production?

India has always been very strong in the pharma space. We are blessed with the best technical capabilities and there’s no doubt about top quality product delivery, together with supporting regulatory documentation. Unfortunately, we have given away this edge to other countries on a platter over the last several decades, just to save some cost and free up our production capacities. This has created a void and dependence on imports, and the global pharma industry in general and India, in particular, started dancing to the tunes of certain foreign suppliers. We are fortunate that the current government has realized this serious problem and initiated several measures and offering incentives to the Industry.

Carbontree typically develops products with complete backward integration; or as much as practically Possible at this stage, since production capacities and product development does not happen overnight. This inspires us to work relentlessly to identify Products of high importance within our limited capabilities and contribute to the best of our ability. And the Indian pharma industry torchbearers and Industry captains are taking the lead in not only attaining self-reliance but Also cater to the needs of the world at large.

The next decade is “the” time for the Indian Pharma Industry. It will grow by leaps and bounds and would become the world’s largest manufacturing hub, be it FDFs, APIs, DIs or KSMs. The current crisis has brought along with it the biggest of the opportunities and I am confident that India would be the leader in the pharma, health & Wellness and nutrition sectors.

Carbontree is well Positioned to capitalize on these opportunities with an elaborate business plan And a clear vision for execution.
