Could you shed some light on the current pharma industry, the key drivers, and the challenges?

The new generation and other people, in general, are becoming health-conscious since the outbreak of COVID-19. There is innovation happening all around the market. At AN Pharmaceuticals, we are always looking to keep up with the trend. We have a special research team to develop products according to the requirement of the customers like doctors and we try to meet the market needs as well. Unlike other pharma companies, we don’t run after the market. For example, if any company launches paracetamol everyone in the industry starts developing that product. We don’t follow that practice. We develop products as per the market requirement, for example, magnesium was a certain downfall for like nine out of 10 people. Everybody had a deficiency post-covid, especially in the recovery part. So we included it in certain molecules to overcome the deficiency. Our ultimate goal is customer satisfaction. If the patient is happy, your medicine is a success.

The current pharma market is pretty dynamic. Years ago, if you had told someone they could buy prescription or over-the-counter drugs online, they would look at you in disbelief. But today, online sales have changed the face of the pharmaceutical industry. It's a totally new era of medicine sales. Patients get 24/7 access to internet pharmacies from any location. They can pick up a prescription as soon as they hang up from a telemedicine appointment or even before they leave the doctor's office. Additionally, getting a refill is simple and quick. However, it has got a downside as well. As a result of rising online pharmacy usage, the global market for counterfeit medications has grown. This is surely one of the major concerns for pharmaceutical organizations.
