(Prof) Dr. Kannan Vishwanatth, Managing Director & Chief Scientific Officer of the Hong Kong based Rupus Global Limited set out its growth plan & said, “We are actively looking out to explore new partnerships & collaborations in Europe for technology transfer & manufacturing associations in the next 12 months in the key segments of Anti-Malarial drugs, Pain Management and Anti-Cancer to cater to the growing demands of the world market.”
“We are already present in more than 75 countries, our aim is to touch 100 companies through research & innovations. We are in advanced stage of negotiations with some of the best institutes & companies. Rupus Global Limited will soon be making its presence felt in the United States & we will soon be having an office there. The active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) market was valued at approximately USD 177.05 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 258.60 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of nearly 7.50% during the forecast period 2022-2027. The key factors boosting the growth of the active pharmaceutical ingredients market are the rising drug research and development activities for drug manufacturing, the increasing importance of generics, and the increasing uptake of biopharmaceuticals. However, the unfavorable drug price control policies across various nations and high manufacturing costs are expected to hinder the market’s growth. Moreover, the launches of new drugs and biological products, acquisitions, collaborations, and regional expansions are some of the strategic initiatives being taken by the companies to maintain stability in the market. This is likely to fuel market growth in the near future. For instance, in 2020, Quartic.ai and Bright Path Labs collaborated to develop AI-based technology for the continuous manufacturing of critical APIs that are required for producing crucial small-molecule drugs.”
