India is the largest provider of generic drugs globally with 20% of exports in terms of volume.

As per the report, India's cost of production is significantly lower than that of the US and that gives a competitive edge to India over others.

Moreover, pharmaceutical exports to the US are rising due to the increasing demand for high quality generic drugs in the market. However, the growth rate for exports of pharma is declining, due to increasing US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) scrutiny on the quality of pharma products manufactured in India.
