The Indian pharmaceutical market is the third largest in terms of volume, exporting products to over 200 countries; and thirteenth largest in terms of value. The Indian pharmaceutical sector is fragmented and complex with over 20,000 registered units. Considering this and the sheer size and the scope of the Indian pharmaceutical industry, it comes as no surprise that for the pharma industry, supply chain is one of the most complex supply chains in the world. Some of the major trends like rise of generics, increasing volume of prescriptions, the unlocking of AI, big data, cloud technologies and rise of cold chain logistics among others have demanded an increased attention on the finer aspects of pharma supply chain management. Companies have realized the importance of effective supply chain and are constantly working towards reducing their logistics and operational costs, which will yield better margins and operational efficiencies.

To achieve this stupendous growth, it is imperative for pharma organizations to strengthen their key pillars and growth enablers. Efficient supply chain, logistics, distribution and planning plays an important role in this growth story.

Considering the paradigm shifts in the pharma supply chain, CPhI India is pleased to announce the 9th Annual Pharma SCM Confex scheduled from 6th - 7th September 2018 in Mumbai.

The primary objective of the conference is to highlight the strategies, practices and tools in place to enable organizations to boost their supply chain procedures and achieve competitive advantage with a special focus on digitization. Designed keeping in mind the current trends in the industry as well as strong research, the conference promises to be a single platform for decision makers as well as influencers to learn, meet, interact and explore opportunities to grow the business.
