Indian Companies Reduce Reliance on China for API Supply amid COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the growing anti-China sentiment in India, manufacturers in the metformin hydrochloride API market are boosting their production capabilities to decrease reliance on China. Disruptions to supplies from China due to the COVID-19 pandemic have been a major factor for manufacturers to bolster local production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs).

Though India is known as the pharmacy of the world for its massive production capabilities in generic drugs and vaccines, China is emerging as a stiff competition to India by accounting for half of the world API supply. Indian drug companies are turning to local producers in the metformin hydrochloride API market to end their reliance on China, as ties between the two countries sourced after a deadly border clash in June 2020. Executives at India’s Cipla, Biocon, Cadila Healthcare, and Sun Pharmaceutical are keen on reducing the dependence on richer rivals of raw materials.
