How do you see the market developing in India?

The market is huge, in fact, the Indian pharma industry is ranked third with a value of approximately USD 50 billion and supplying medicines to over 200 countries in the world. Moreover, we supply 50 percent of vaccines to the global demand when it comes to COVID. The pharmaceutical industry is undergoing rapid growth and the expanding ecosystem is creating a demand for companies that can play the crucial role of taking the products to global geographies.

While pharmaceutical companies focus on research and development of advanced medicines and pharma products, we take charge of ensuring that the medicines reach the doctors, and through them the patients who are looking for the best treatment. Companies these days follow the exceptional protocol of distribution which helps them to market their finished goods and provide exemplary benefits to their associates. This is a win-win situation for both the company as well as for the investor. With benefits like a good profit margin, monopoly rights, promotional support, and others, it has become a lucrative business. The scope for us seems to be great as the demand for quality and affordable healthcare products is quite high and expected to further increase in the future.

What incited your entrepreneurial foray into the Pharma industry?

I never expected to get into this business. However, I was a hospital pharmacist in the Ministry of Health Oman and aspired to do something for patients’ safety. My work experience taught me a lot and I gained immense exposure in terms of dispensing for inpatient and outpatient pharmacies, assisting the team of clinical pharmacists, and stores as well. In November 2020, when our contract came to an end with the Ministry of Health, I came back to my hometown, Mumbai. Honestly, I wanted to take advantage of the market here while meeting my aspiration to serve in healthcare. I wanted to do something in this flushing space and that marked my entrepreneurial journey.

Share the inception story of Scientific Pharma.

When I came back to India before the second spike of Covid, my friend who started the pharma business earlier was witnessing an immense boom in terms of turnover. I took over six to seven months to analyze the market at my friend’s office. While partnering with a couple of my friends, followed by a thorough survey and research, we started the company focused on some specialized injectables for OT, ICU, and CCU. We are now on the path of creating a niche for ourselves.
