The September month outlook of Indian pharma market shows poor growth of 2.8% and 3.7% growth on half yearly basis from April-sept17. The main factor which had pull down the market growth of first six months is pre and post effect of new taxation regime GST.

The indepth analysis suggest that no segment except dermatology and antidiabetic which is able to sustain growth of more than double digit.equally so far as highest growth contributor companies are concern only mankind and GSK have surpassed more than 10% growth and Abbot with 6% on monthly basis,Moreover only two regions had posted growth in double digits for month are Karnataka and Mumbai.
