Life Science and BioScience Business Opportunities in India

Friday 28th October 2016 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Please save the date for Leicester and Leicestershire’s Gateway to India event, an international trade event being held as part of the Leicester Business Festival.

Gateway to India is sponsored by Santander and supported by the Department for International Trade.  This one day event promotes better links between the Midlands and India, and will include industry expert-led workshop opportunities.

The Indian biotechnology sector is anticipated to grow to £60 billion by 2025. The pharmaceutical sector is estimated to grow to £27 billion by 2020 and is dominated by generic drugs. Growth is projected due to pharmaceutical outsourcing and investments by multinational companies.

Opportunities in the sector include:
– Co-development
– Contract research in drug discovery and development

Oncology, diabetes, regenerative medicine, and vaccines are some of the therapeutic growth areas for R&D collaborations, and there is a growing demand for regulatory stability, licensing partners for innovative research, and contract manufacturing following global norms. Licensing arrangements through R&D investments in the biopharma sectors generate significant income.

Join the British Deputy High Commissioner for Gujarat and senior UK Trade advisers to find out more about opportunities for Midlands businesses in India.
